First of all, I have been diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder/Depression (back in 2005).
I live near an airport, maybe about 5 miles away from my house. So, airplanes fly over my house (quite low at times) constantly. I startle pretty easy and these planes seem to get louder and louder and it frightens me terribly. Just this morning, about 4 am, I was awakened by a plane going over. It was SO LOUD! AND SO CLOSE! I am afraid the planes may crash onto my house. Everytime I hear one coming over, I have to look out the window to see how close it is. My heart beats out of my chest, my throat swells, I want to run...but to where? If a plane is gonna crash, it's unlikely I could run from it.
I pray everyday that I can beat this fear, I take my medications religiously, and I try my best to self soothe. Deep breathing, etc.
I think I am going crazyyyyyy!
Anybody deal with this kinda thing?
