Post Pandemic Shopping Trip #Anxiety #stressor #AmIcrazy #savemoney
I’ve been out to lunch w/friends and family here and there sitting outside,wearing masks except while eating, those dates have been fine.
However, I like most have been excited to get out and shop. (So tired of Amazon) Wondering if you have experienced this? I get into a department store , having a great time looking aimlessly at all the stupid things I don’t really need. I put a few things in my cart,or prepare to go in a fitting room obviously enjoying the outing … all of the sudden I’m looking around and I feel my heart racing ,then I begin to perspire to the point of feeling like everybody around me can see me freaking out 😵💫. I talk myself down off the “isolation pandemic PTSD cliff” by leaving immediately. I making no purchase. I calm myself down by getting to my car and playing some music… Has anybody else found it hard to get back “out there” around “it” meaning life?The only advantage to feeling this way is I save money on purchasing things that I honestly have no immediate need for 😉😉. I feel like I need to continue trying, but honestly it scares me a bit.Please share your thoughts, experiences, suggestions.
