I know this probably isn't the right place to post or ask, but I wanted to know if any other cosplayer is like me. Someone who suffers from Panic Disorder plus Obesity.
I've been going to anime cons since 2007, but I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder in 2009 when I went to the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack. In 2011, I also got a bladder problem, my doctor says I just have overactive bladder and they don't know what's wrong.
What I want to know, how do you cope? I have to take pills regularly so I don't go into a panic daily. But for things like going to panels and wanting to take a stab at answering questions for free items. (I tried this in 2012, I passed out after trying to think of the answer). My only answer to this is that I got too excited and my panic just happened to trigger.
How does one go about these things at anime cons? I only go to an anime convention once a year, so I'm not really sure >_< This year, I only went to mild panels and didn't do much things that'll trigger a panic attack. But I really want to get myself more active with panels and the like.
