Today I had what I call blip. It happens when I’m super stressed. I was driving, and had to answer a phone call about my newly diagnosed migraine issue, and about needing a brain scan, so I pulled over. I was so out of it, I didn’t quite recognize that there was a perfectly empty parking lot next to me I could’ve pulled into, I didn’t have my flashers on, and I had my foot on the brake the entire time. After I got done with the phone call, I realized my foot was on the brake, so I put my car into park and I just stared. I was not seeing anything. I don’t know how much time passed during my blip, but it was enough time for someone to knock on my window, and ask if I was OK. I felt so embarrassed. I told her I was in the middle of an anxiety attack, but I would be OK, cause after all, what do you tell a complete stranger?

      Sending hugs. I have both anxiety and migraines. I've had a brain scan (an EEG) and it's not as scary as it seems, but I understand the anxiety associated with the unknown around it. You seemed to have handled the panic attack very well. It's hard to make decisions and actually take care of your safety when it's impossible to think clearly. I hope you're doing better ❤️❤️

      Hey its ok. Things like that happen. And unfortunately they can be embarrassing. I had a complete meltdown in the middle of a crowded grocery store before. I was just way too anxious and it was very embarrassing. So just know you're not alone. And I think you handled your situation very, very well. I hope you're doing ok now and I hope if it ever happens again, that you're able to push past it and handle it just as well as you have

      When I read this, I think that you handled your situation very well. But I understand how it can feel embarrassing to be in a vulnerable state of mind in a public space. I hope you know you’re not alone. Not sure if I experience the same thing as you do, but sometimes when I’ve “talked for too long” I need to run and sit in a bathroom stall for 10 minutes to recollect. You are worth taking time to give yourself space.
