Attacks of Anxiety... with some Pangs of Panic for Added Measure...

by - Monday, April 06, 2009

It is no secret that there were times in my life that I suffered from depression.

But I don't think that this is one of those times.

But I am suffering from some of the symptoms of depression... anxiety and panic attacks.

I just can't let things go.

Yesterday I had a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I was doing well all day long.

Until about 8:00 last night... I got something in my head that just wouldn't leave.

And that something in my head creates the most miserable feeling in my chest.

A tight, icky feeling.

It sucks.

So I bit the bullet. Wednesday I have a doctor's appointment... and Monday I have an appointment with a counsellor to try and learn some techniques to deal with stress. I am not above medication (I've been on it in the past), but I really think I need to tackle this issue from a holistic approach as well as medication.

I just hate feeling like I have failed.

Even though I know I haven't.

But try telling that tight, icky feeling in my chest that.

    just for the record, i think you are fabulous.

    you haven't failed - you recognized some signs, and you are DOING something about it.
