Why do I pass out when my husband gets angry? It has happened twice in the last month. Then I feel weak and weapy for the rest of the day and go into a depression. He doesn't ever hit me. Just the table, for example. It seems to send me into a sort of panic attack and then deep depression. He wasn't really mad at me--just hitting the table (real hard) because he didn't win a silly game. But I could see his anger building and was even trying to lose the stupid game. I don't care if I win or not, just want to have fun. He apologizes but the episodes make me feel weak. It makes me wonder if I have a character flaw instead of a mood disorder. I take Celexa and Klonopin. Could it be that they are pooping out? I was doing great but now I feel like I am going downhill again.
The real question is: Why would I pass out (medically speaking) and then cry uncontrollably over such an issue? What do you think my pdoc would surmise if I told him. Is this something significant to report at my next appointment? How do you determine what is significant to relay to pdoc?
Happpy Mother's Day everyone.
