Imagine having a panic attack in an airport?

Imagine being under so much stress, that you are waiting for a flight that has just been cancelled due to bad weather or some kind of terrorist threat and all of a sudden go into a panic state? It would be very bad for more than one simple reason, but this would be that the way people look at you when you freak out they first get on Twitter or Facebook and start to video record you on their smartphones and you become the object of suspicion as security guards move in towards you thinking that you might be a crazy person who is about to lose control and do something irrational? No one knows when and if Panic Mode will set in. but people need to become more sympathetic to others with this condition. Even a police officer who is in his 20's who has been on the force since graduation can get into a panic mode. It was when I saw a Dr. Phil show the other day and I saw a man who was being interviewed about his panic attacks that began to become more frequent, as a possible in-direct result of having been electrocuted or rather, shocked by electrical current but not seriously injured, but only rattled. When we become aware that we are not Bullet-Proof and we are mortal, we sometimes can begin to feel afraid and start having panic attacks. These are on the rise in America. If a stable minded policeman can have them and even people like me who have a mood disorder in the first place mixed in with all that's been happening on planet earth lately, it is no wonder panic mode sets in in most people and is becoming all too frequent and more and more common.

Panic attack? The last flight I was on, I had layovers in a couple of airports. I found that I had to ride down an escalator to get to the part of the airport where the next plane waited. Fine. The blankety escalators were so steep that I went into a fear attack, I guess you'd call it. Really nothing to hold onto. Long and I mean long way down and me holding onto a wheeled suitcase. Oh Gawd. Not at all funny. I could not find an elevator. I got through it but it was not pretty. I really feared that I was going to fall. I'm not always super stable on my feet. Nobody around to ask and I really do not like calling attention to myself.

That sounds very stressful. I would be just like that myself. I am glad that experience is behind you now.

@lookatdesktop You're from Dallas! We got stuck in the Dallas airport for over three hours. Kind of funny....me being bored, I actually bought a pretty blouse from a boutique there. Not the kind of thing I would have bought but something put me in the mood.

Yes you could get yourself in a lot of trouble in places like airports especially, if people start to focus on you.

Back in the day, when I had panic attacks, Thank God, I stopped having them after I DCed the BC pill, I had one on a bus, and one on a plane!
