Well, I went to the doc yesterday, she upped my meds, so hopefully that will help some, they are also doing all kinds of blood tests. I will go back in at the end of Nov. to see how the meds are doing and get the results of the tests.
I did talk to my hubby more, told him how I was really feeling those few months before I went to the doc. He was shocked, but handled it all well and was very supportive. I will try to talk to him more when I'm feeling really down.
I go back to work today so I"m hoping that will help keep me focused.

Well done..going to the doc was a brilliant idea...glad your hubby was so supportive, and I understand what you mean about about trying to talk to him when you are feeling down - eeek it's really difficult for me too..actually it's hard to talk to anyone about panic attack etc unless you know thay've been there done that too...
Since I have been visiting this site, I realise I am not alone and that has made a remarkable difference to my life!
I know you will be feeling more like your old self soon.
Take good care.

Suzy
So happy you went to the doc and had meds increased to help you out
As well I give you alot of credit for talking to hubby and trying to explain this to him
Support is crucial but as Maree pionted out not many that "have not been here " will understand I am hoping he does at least have a grip on some of it now
I too concur with maree since coming to HW yrs back at my lowest I have been supported and helped thru so many thoings
Illness after illness new DX and after effects of TX as well as just losing mom just over 8 mths ago
Truly w/o hw I would have been a lost person and to boot my teen daughter cait and hubby joined to see what they could / should do to help me out
perhaps down the line something your hubby might want to do or if he would like to talk to another spouse of someone with this I am sure Howie would enjoy talking to another fellow about what goes on
Please do take care of self and I am SO GLAD you found us here
keep getting support from your HW family
we are here for you always

Having talked more I do feel a bit better. I think upping the meds has helped some too. I'm still feeling some of the anxiety, but I'm having a better time refocusing my thoughts. I just so do NOT want to go back to that place that I was in.

Today has been an up and down one. For awhile I'm fine, thinking everything will be ok and it will all work out, later I come back down to the "doom and gloom" and thinking this will all turn out bad and why do I want to be here for it. I can feel the anxiety in my chest at those times. I would like to crawl into a box and hide until life calms down.

She's a good doc. I'm just having a rough time. The anxiety kicked in a while ago and I start in with the thoughts of "do I really want to be here" bit. At times I just don't know what to do, I've told my husband alot of what is going on in my head and he is so supportive, but I don't think he "gets" what I am feeling and thinking. I just don't know how much more to tell him and I don't know who else to talk too.
I'm just tired of dealing with all the crap and waiting for it all to crash.

My heart is going at it this morning, I didn't get to be till after 1 am, but was up before 6 am. I've got the sick feeling in my stomach again and a bit jittery. I don't know what to do anymore. It just seems like a lost cause.

Updating....After a rough morning, and pretty much wanting to leave my family, I am feeling ok. Had a pretty good day at work and was busy this afternoon. Hoping for a nice weekend for myself and all of you.

I don't know if the rough stuff will every go away. I wake up this morning with the fast beating heart, the tight chest and it's hard to breath. I'm hoping it will pass soon, I've got alot to do today.

I'm doing ok, another morning waking up with the anxiety, but it's starting to settle down already. I'm going to make my family bacon and eggs for breakfast in just a bit so hopefully that will get rid of the rest of it. I need to go wrap presents for my oldest, and finish laundry and find my living room. Those are my big things for today, anything else I get done is a bonus.
I'm working all five weekdays this week, a first for me since I started this job, so that's cool, more money too. I am enjoying the job alot, and I'm so glad I did it, it is helping me keep more focused.
