Does anyone feel the need to run to the bathroom during an attack?

This is one of my most common impulses during high anxiety.  I haven't heard much about it from others, and was wondering if it is common. (it never gets listed as a symptom)

Hi I´m new here

Hi folks,
 
I am currently home bound, and became this way about 2 years ago.  I used to be a singer/songwriter in Germany.  Traveling from town to town all by myself, singing and playing for 3 hours a night.  Now I can't even make it past the end of my private road (not even that far some days).  I stumbled across this site on a random search, I pray it works.
Last November my wife left me for another man, taking our 3 daughters with her.  Since then, the panic/anxiety have coupled with depression, and I know I have to do something because I'm reaching my wits end.
Well that's me, currently I take .5 mg clonopin twice daily, and .25-.5 xanax on really bad days, though fairly infrequent.  Again, howdy, and I look forward to getting to know some of you. :)

Thanks gang,
 
I just started today.  Actually I rarely have to go during an attack, it is just the feeling of needing to get there.  It's the same if only one bathroom is available and occupied, my anxiety spikes.  Glad to know that it isn't that unusual.  So, I am a housebound agoraphobic.  Honestly, does this program work?  I'm willing to put time and effort in, I was just wondering about the success rate.

Hi I´m new here

Thanks for the welcome sunny.  I'm in it to win it.  Being housebound, this is literally a God send.  Glad to hear it is effective.  I've tried the "fad" stuff, and various meds.  But could never afford or get to a therapist.

Hi I´m new here

Thanks for the warm welcome gang, and yes sunny Hasslehoff is an icon for middle aged single women.  I used to play the pub circuit, the old standards, Neil Young, The Eagles, Bob Dylan, etc....  I also wrote and performed a lot of originals.  Nowadays I just write and record here at home.
 
If anyone is interested in hearing some, shoot me a message and I'll send you a link or something.
 
Thanks again, and I look forward to getting to know you all better.

I appreciate the how open everyone was.  Maybe just the nature of the symptom keeps it from coming up very often.  Thanks for you kind words Davit, I think I'll be here for a while.
