Work meetings 6 Years, 2 Months ago  
It is an integral part of my job to sit in meetings and take minutes. I absolutely hate them because first I don't know anything about what is being discussed and second ( and most importantly) I get major anxiety. I don't know what it is. I hate being sedentary. I am a go, go, go sort of person. I also hate being in small rooms. I am also bored out of my skull because the topics and discussions are totally Greek to me..

The meetings only last an hour but it seems like eternity. Every single meeting I go to, I have anxiety attacks. To handle them I fIdget, pull my hair in and out of a pony tail, breath deep and try to write down as much as I can just to keep my mind busy. However, there are some meetings where it is like something has taken over my body and I have the urge to run out the door. By the grace of God I somehow can snap into reality real quick and stay in my seat with my palms sweating and heart racing.

I told my husband that when the day comes when I have to excuse myself because I am having a panic attack, that is it. I will never be able to attend another meeting again. Thus, losing my job.

I posted this just to get it out on paper. I am not looking for advice but if someone has a similar story I would love to hear it and how you deal with this..

Re:Work meetings 6 Years, 2 Months ago  
If you have a psychiatrist that you're dealing with, tell him or her exactly what you said here and maybe a .5mg of xanax can be prescribed for you for at least these meetings so you can keep your job. Even if you don't use it, there is security in knowing that it's on your person. It's effect is immediate so is the relief. This is what I did in the past and it worked for me. There has to be something besides you to relieve the anxiety which can lead to the panic attack. Take care...Ed
