Default Weirdest Thing You've Had an Anxiety or Panic Attack About?

Lets face it, anxiety is weird. We panic over weird things. What I want to know (for the sheer reason of community and not feeling alone) is what is the weirdest thing you've had an anxiety or panic attack about. Mine was a menu that could be vaguely confusing, even though I understood it.

Sexual initiation. The PTSD about it has ruined my life.

being touched on the face by a flower

I'm alergic to wasps, and it really got me.. I had a panic attack that lasted forever- the voices in my head were screaming, I was totally breathless, I was frozen to the spot... it was horrible.

the person looked at me like I'd lost my ****ing mind and started shouting what are you doing?

it's a cute yellow flower, it's lovely!, but I think by that time they may as well be talking to the flower (they'd have got more of a response)

the other weirdest time was when I got diffrent shaped chips (fries)

of course I thought they'd not taste the same, they had poison in them, they had been cooked wrong, and their I went again! (that time I even got a really bad pain in my kneck), phantom pain that is

or that time I totally flipped over the factt I was missing my WWE wrestling and took to sending threatening messages to random people- give my wrestling to me, or else

only to find out 20 minits later that the wrestling that week was on a saturday, not a friday

embarrassed much?

and then I pannicked again because wrestling falls on fridays in england- not saturdays!

My husband was 15 minutes late getting home. I mean, really?!? I thought he was dead.
LOL!

Silliest thing was I checked out of a nice hotel because they kept playing the same three songs on a sound track. Total meltdown.

Making dinner. And it wasn't that hard of a recipe. I just couldn't do it. Thankfully my husband did.
