My wife and I were having a great day together today; I was feeling quite well and we had stopped for lunch. About halfway through lunch I began to feel dreadful, very suddenly. I felt weak, anxious, and sick. I had no idea why I felt this way but it was clear that my brain was trying to give me a severe anxiety attack. We got the rest of our food to go and left. Once we stepped out of the restaurant I could see that there were some large clouds starting to build on the horizon. My wife dropped me off at home and went off to finish our errands alone while I went to bed to try to rest and relax. Less than an hour later I was startled by crashing, roaring sound, which turned out to be the mother of all hailstorms hammering our house. I have had many similar experiences, and i tend to have my worst anxiety during the times of year when we have severe wind and pressure changes. I can not find any real, scientific literature confirming that anxiety can be caused by barometric changes, but I know that it does for me at least. Has anyone else experienced something similar? Any advice for helping me control this sort of anxiety? Storms don't even make me anxious; the sound and smell of rain and thunder are actually soothing to me. It's just the sudden change in barometric pressure which I think is responsible somehow.
