    Am I possibly able to recreate the same symptoms. Just been driven to in laws and felt similar again. Looked around, felt panicky and road looked unfamiliar and I wasnít sure quite where I was on the road. Not sure if itís a genuine problem or if Iím making it worse.

    Your anxiety is making you distracted, no more, no less.

    I'm writing this, not because I am looking for more responses but because it allows me to articulate how I feel (in a safe place) and give me something to read back on when I am struggling.

    I'm managing to get into work still, although each morning feels like a real struggle. I am still analysing what happened to me, questioning myself, worrying that this time it won't be anxiety and that everyone is wrong. I am on high alert - and driving is a real effort because it brings the memory and fear. I know I could easily avoid driving, but know that it'll make things worse.

    I am also at the place where it feels really difficult to do the things that I know help anxiety. I get thoughts about it being pointless, if the real problem is a BT or whatever. I know this is typical anxiety thinking, but it doesn't make it any less scary.

    I know youíre in the middle of it and itís a scary place to be, but it might help to try some mindfulness practices in the morning after you get up? I found mantras brilliant too. Start the day with positivity, you are still here! Itís a beautiful day because ......

    Youíll get there x

    Flatterycat, does the problem only occur when you're driving?

    Hi Erin

    Over the years, I have had it (very occasionally) when driving for a few seconds and I’ve also had it in a couple of shops. I remember writing about on here, years ago.

    When i I had it last week though, it felt more intense and I really panicked.
