What it is: I am having an issue with my swipeable form. It uses a vanilla JS method to achieve swipe recognition and .animate to cycle through each part of the form.

My problem: When too many swipes are performed in succession or too many next buttons are clicked in succession, the .animate seems to fail and they start to pile up in the center of the visible area.

Things I've tried: I've tried stopPropagation() and setTimeout(), but neither have helped. I've also tried removing the listeners at the start of their function and adding them back at the end of the nextPrev() function, which also didn't correct the issue.

I'm not sure where exactly it is going wrong and therefore don't know how to troubleshoot this. I've tried different things at various stages and nothing seems to correct this issue. I am looking for a way to prevent this from happening.

I apologize for not presenting an MCVE, I left everything in intentionally so someone could experience cycling through the form and reproduce the issue.

The code:
