PAWS



Had an anxiety attack before leaving for my parents' house.  I was suppose to be there at 1-2 and ended up not leaving until 5.  PAWS was especially bad.  I couldn't concentrate on what I was doing and ended up standing around several times while attempting to remember what I was previously looking for.  Immediately after departing for my parents', I seriously considered the possibility that I was losing my mind.  Although I didn't really believe it at the time, I 'talked myself down' from an anxiety/panic attack by reminding myself of the symptoms of PAWS.  

To date, this was the worst PAWS that I've experienced.  Thankfully, the situation improved by the time that I arrived at my parents house (an hour and 15 minute drive).
