Awww... I'm having a similar day today. Its raining.. actually we're having some thunderstorms and hail. I really over did it yesterday and I'm in a lot of pain today.
Best advice is just get up and do what you have to do.. get it over with. Then go home and curl up with some moist heat and if you have to just give in.. at least that's what I'm going to do.
Wish I had better advice.. LOL, wanna race and see who gets back to their heating pad first!!?? You'll probably win, I have to pick up hubby and make dinner, so I don't think I'll be seeing my heating pad till about 6:30 (EST)
Hope you feel better soon
I had panic attacks for years & really hated them. Are you taking anything for them? The best advice I ever got was from a Doctor who told me not to worry about them so much. He told me the worst thing that was going to happen was I would pass out from the worry of the attack & wake up & the attack would be gone, I would not die. Easy fix. LOL Well, I really thought about that & finally understood, for me, they were from the worry & stress, so I got some little brown bags to breath in when I needed to & just ignored them for the most part. I would think about passing out & find a comfy place, just in case, ignored them & they went away. If yours are physical, meaning caused by something physical, this wouldn't help of course. I hope you get a good answer for yourself soon. We have enough to worry about with Fibro.
It sounds like your body is saying "no, stay home" I have learned that if it is possible, I need to listen to that voice. If I absolutely have to go out, I make it as quick as possible & come straight home. You have an illness & we all have a tendency to think it is an illness we need to learn to ignore, to push through & act like it doesn't exist but it does. If you had cancer, would you make yourself do some of the things you feel must be done, right after Chemo? Yes, we want to push our limits slowly but we need to listen when our bodies say "no". To go ahead & do it anyway is called "push & crash", if you push then expect the crash. It took me a long time to get real with my illness. To not feel guilty if I couldn't do the things I tell myself I should be able to do. Take care of yourself & I hope you get your panic attacks under control, I know they can be so hard to deal with. Relax & use you moist heating pad & don't feel guilty. Many soft hugs, Denise

LOL.. Ouch.. you beat me back here...you win!!
I'm doing a little better after getting out of the house but I still feel your pain and I hope you feel better soon!! I'm so sorry you're feeling so bad and wish there was something that help. Just know that I feel for you and I hear ya!! I deal with lots of anxiety too. It SUX!!!
Take care and we're here for YOU!!!
I can SO relate to you- I had severe anxiety when I was your age! It got to the point where I was "not" functioning and could hardly leave the house. I know it is bad for you right now, but it can be treated and you can start to live your life again!
I would see a Dr. as soon as possible and get started on an antidepressant. It takes the majority of anxiety away. When you can see a counselor that will help tremendously too. Fibro alone is enough to deal with! Like others stated, check into all the resources your city, county, state have to see a Dr. for little or nothing.
Good idea to have boyfriend go with you to the store till you can get some of this anxiety under control.
Let us know how your doing-
