Hi, I am so sorry to hear of your accident. I suspect you experienced a bit of shock with some Post tramatic stress that you are still feeling.Most people expect some huge event to happen when they are in shock, such as unable to perform and falling to the ground. In mental shock, I remember ever single detail of my experience and I kept thinking to myself I should be going into shock, why can I still feel and hear all the awful things going on around me.The mind has a way of protecting us.
If you continue to have problems, I would certainly suggest having a check up by your PCP. I thank goodness your not hurt. You are family. ((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))
I am so sorry about your accident, but so happy that you are weren't hurt. I can't offer any other advice than what you have already been given - just remember to go see your doc if you continue to have further problems. As already said, some problems don't creep up until a few days later.
(((((((Hugs and so happy you weren't hurt))))))).

Thanks for all the advice guys, I knew you would all have sane things to say! Crying, I really understand what you are saying about feeling "wierd" for not having a panic attack. I almost wish it would happen so I could get it over with (almost!!).
I've made an appt with doc to see what he thinks but generally he just rolls his eyes at me a lot and tells me to "get in my place" and become a mother/quit my job!! He's okay apart from that.
Wen, Kitt (((((hugs back)))))).
My biggest concern is that I am still unable to eat. Everything just comes back up. It's like the panic attack is happening in my stomach not my head. Is this possible???? Am I finally going nutso?

My doc took one look at me and printed out a script for valium... apparantley I have been in deep shock for days and should stay sedated. Ooops. It's better than panic that's all I can say...
I'm not able to keep solids down yet but I think I'm on the improve now...
Lyn, sweetheart sorry things are going badly for you, sending you
please vent if you need xxxxx little s.i.s
Hey Meg,I am sorry this has kicked you in the butt but look at it this way, Mr Bean makes a good wages at this kind of behavior...........you could be a star :)
As for the Valium, I half 2mg tabs to get 1 mg. I see no reason why you could not half the med. You cannot walk into walls. I would check with physician to see if for some reason he wants you heavily sedated and then you best stay safe or I will send bubble wrap my friend.
Good Morning Meg,
This is Kitt checking in on you? Hoping things are looking up for you and want you to know we are all here for you.
Hugs to you.
Kitt, Lyn, thanks so much for checking in on me. I'm only on 2.5mg now, I think it was coming from a state of shock on no meds to 5mg that did the damage.
Sadly, really badly sadly, my four year old kitty was hit and killed by a car last night (my apologies for crying twice on the same site) and I think I'm back in shock. This year is just Stuffed so far for me. I try not to whinge too much, but we buried her little body in the back yard, my other kitty is very upset, my partner has gone into "mute" mode and I keep crying at work. Again. They are too nice to sack me, but I think they are wondering "well what next?" as am I. Thanks for listening guys and sorry again, this isn't panic related. It's just making me want to give up...and then panic. xx
I know I should be looking after myself at the moment but all I seem to be doing is trying to reassure people I'm FINE when I'm not because I don't want to upset them. I hate doing that. I'm trying to get my partner to cry, or do something but he still won't talk to me. Arrgh. I have the weekend off so I will try and do something for me. Anyone know any funny, non-cat related movies??
I've scrubbed every spare sufcace in this house fifteen times now...talk about OCD resurfacing. Hi! I'm going a bit nuts, but cleaning keeps me away from more self destructive distractions.
Thanks for the kind words xx
((((((lyn))))))) hugs o huge
(((((Cary)))))) more huge hugs
Thanks for support and advice. I'm going to see Juno, and though I don't think I can do popcorn just yet I may try something small and chocolate coated!! I hope your weekend is great too (stay away from the movie atonment, very depressing and cry inducing)
