paula Posted August 14, 2008 Report Share Posted August 14, 2008 Can anyone explain to me, the feeling's and actions I do On attending Appointments or even arrangements that I've made to meet someone.I don't know how to explain this but I know it is a MAJOR PROBLEM that I'm having.When I know that I've got to attend an Appointment e.g. Psychiatrist, G.P., Dentist, Hairdressers etc, that I am aware of what time the appointment is, but I always wait till the last minute to start to get ready for. Causing me to run around like a headless chicken!I can't help it! I always have plenty of time to get ready but, no matter what, I always start to do unnecessary things that could wait till I get back home.I always end up being late for my appointments/meetings having no excuse for. Then when I arrive at my appointments, I find that I am very anxious and then start panicking. By doing this I find then that my body perspiration is coming out of me in buckets. Causing yet! more embarrassment for me. It literally drips of me and then I get paranoid, thinking that everyone's looking at me.Because of this problem that I am having, I find that because of the situation, me sweating and I don't even have to be late for this to occur, that no sooner that I see Psychiatrist, G.P., Dentist etc. That I can't wait to get out. So I am not even saying what my problems are or discussing these issues because I just want to get out! Most of the time I can't even remember what has been said because my mind has not even been focused on the reasons of my appointments.So in theory my Psychiatrist, G.P., Dentist are not getting a true statement from me on my thoughts, feelings etc.I get so nervous at attending these appointments that I have trouble sleeping the previous night because I am so stressed thinking of this problem and the embarrassment it is going to cause me.I wish I knew why I always leave everything till the last minute but I don't. I could have 5,6,7 hours to get ready and I would still be late! Why?Could someone please explain to me why my body works like it does. I don't know whether it has anything to do with certain things that has to be done before I leave the house or not? E.G My bed has to be made, no dirty pots in other words I feel that my house has to be clean and spotless before I depart. When these jobs are done, I find that I'm still dawdling around instead of getting ready! Why Is this affecting me like it is. It's very hard to explain!Paula:confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
