Do I need professional help?

My worst nightmare is being stuck in Ikea, in a sort of "Groundhog Day" situation unable to exit, but just having to keep following the path for ever.

My wife says I need professional help. I say I am just a normal male....

Please help!

Re: Do I need professional help?

A few weeks back when I was in the Romandie area picking up something from young American lass, she lamented how when she went over back to the US for holidays she felt the immediate need to be physically out of Walmart / Costco etc., and so it seems that it is normal considering the time you have spent in CH

Nothing wrong with you that a nice big helping of Sill Vitlök won't cure.

Re: Do I need professional help?

Oh dear, this happens to me when I am in a huge UK/US style sopping Mall in October, and they have that awful 'plastic' Christmas music on loop. It makes me feel physically sick and I just have to get out (and I am female). Only do Christmas shopping in small towns and individual small shops these days. My only phobia ever.

Crap, this happened to me last week in the big coop in dietlikon. I'd never been there before, couldn't find a damn thing and kept going round and round. The ikea is even worse. Freakin' hamster wheels of shopping, especially when crowded.

I've had professional help. It didn't. Help.

P.S. I'm female.

Like a rat in a maze, just follow the smell of the hot dogs. That'll lead you home.

That solution has a good chance of succeeding. Thanks

All others who have posted in my hour of need. Thanks. I am considering founding a support group for hopeless souls suffering with similar psychoses.
And personally I am a Sill Inlagd guy myself...
