I think I had a panic attack tonight. I was reading a book that gave a description of the afterlife. I would post what it said, but I don't want to have another one. Anyway, it triggered me thinking of death and the fact that one day I might have the same mental faculty I have right now, but be looking back over 70+ years of life, and forward to 10 more minutes, and after that, nothing. I dwelled on that momentarily and all of a sudden couldn't breath, chest got tight, felt sick to my stomach and brain didn't feel like normal. It was very disturbing. I felt completely out of sorts. I drove home in a daze, still feeling that way, and it lasted for over 10 min. Feel OK now, still get a little queasy when I consider death, but I feel very drained as well. The disturbing part is that this kind of happened 3 nights ago. As I went to turn my bedside lamp off, I got very panicked over sort o the same subject. Was this a real panic attack, or just some sick worry?
