I think all negative commenters need to read up on anxiety disorders before they come to a conclusion of 'stop being a pussy'. Trust me, I'd love to not take meds and be normal for once in my life. But, my brain isn't like everyone else's. Gladly I haven't had a panic attack in over a year because of my medication. It's nothing to joke around with. Some people can lose motor functions because of panic attacks. I literally went blind from a panic attack once. If those who make fun of people with a mental illness had to live in their bodies, they would feel like utter shit. Just had to get that off my chest because I've suffered for years trying to find a way to control my disorder.
Exhibit 1 of what is wrong with society. My Korean War vet grandfather accidentally lobs off a finger, he wraps it up and gets back to work. You accidentally give yourself a papercut, you need heavy doses of anti-psychotics to keep from dying of sheer terror at the sight of a drop of blood. Whatever happened to 'man up and deal with it'?
Allegedcranium - Due to your ignorance, you should not reproduce. Further, if they hadn't gotten the bottle open yet due to their panicking, how would they be able to transfer the medication to another bottle? Think before you speak. Maybe OP did transfer the medication to a new bottle AFTER they got it open.
Actually, you shouldn't speak if you haven't had anxiety attacks constantly. it literally feels like the brink of death. I used to get them so badly it felt like my arms were on fire and my legs would go numb. It's chemically induced on the brain. I don't know if OP has that sort of problem, though.
Of course it seems society complains about these things more because they're discussed in the open rather than kept inside, allowing them to fester before you have a mental breakdown. You cannot control a panic attack, as it's an involuntary response. There are methods to deal with it, but telling someone to man up only exposes your complete lack of understanding on human physiology.
Gah I love the conversations on here! makes me laugh :) and... 44- just so you know it's illegal to put pills in a bottle without the proper labeling. I know people do it, but it's still not smart lol. And as a person with severe anxiety and depression, attacks can happen anytime. Just one tiny tigger and cause a severe emotional breakdown. So I understand OP cuz I've had panic attacks over not finding my cellphone or car keys. Stupid reason, but hey it happens. Everyone just has to learn to not let the little things bother them. It's what the medicine helps to do. :)
dont give up op....unless they made the bottle out of titanium, you can maybe take out some of that emotion on breaking open the bottle. i could suggest a hacksaw, but get creative with it. like the first poster here says....dont worry and be happy. goodluck with the safety seal, but dont fret over it. lol. use a hammer, and keep em in a ziploc if u have no kids.
OMG. Don't feel bad, I'm having anxiety attacks too. Took about thirty minutes to get some stupid yogurt.
