Catchy name and you can post to your heart's content here, vent, laugh, cry or whatever gets you down the road. We are here to listen and we all have anxiety and panic so we understand and we are here for you my new friend. Welcome to the family.
I think you have a right to your anxiety but coming here and talking about it will help you to put it down in writing and be able to help keep the "stinkin thinkin" away.
I am Kitt and I have had A & P for 27 years along with depression. It has slowed me down more then once and crippled me a few times but I refuse to give in to letting anxiety ruin my zest for life.
I see the same spunk in your post. Remember guilt is a waste emotion and if you did not go to the ER on Christmas how bored the Doctors and nurses would have been just sitting around eating fruitcake and candy canes. LOL. I worked in an ER for 26 years. We always told everyone we were open 24/7 and even on Christmas so I am glad you made use of the services offered.
Keep on talking to us and know we care...............many wonderful hugs to you.
