Why would being bored scare me?

I did pretty good all day today without really having a panic attack. I did feel dizzy at times or my heart would speed up for seemingly no reason. (i think my dang adrenaline is stuck in on mode or something lol) I stayed calm though and tried not to panic. Although tonight when my Mom went to bed and I couldn't find anyone to talk to online I started to panic. I have things to do like read or watch TV but it's like I need someone to talk to. If no one is there I get panicky.

I have same problem. I feel really hard to stay alone. I must listen something to make me go to sleep as well.

Yeah and being alone usually doesn't bother me except in this hightened state of anxiety it does.

I used to really enjoy my time alone. It makes you think too much.

Boredom can cause anxiety for alot of us I think. When we stay busy we aren't as focused on our anxiety. Hang in there you'll beat this! Crossword puzzles in bed at night help me alot!
