As some of you know, last November my anxiety/panic came back with a vengeance, I was terrified constantly, afraid to be alone, wouldn't leave the house, etc. I've been trying very hard to use my cbt and relaxation and have come such a long, long way from then. My worst panic attack occured when my husband was gone for the weekend hunting, which led to my fear of being alone. Anyway, I've been working on that since my husband and daughter leave each morning and I'm alone and I'm really fine with it now...although I've not been alone for the whole night...until last night. My husband came home and informed me that he had to fly to KS last night at 9pm. He wouldn't be home until today. My first reaction was, "I can't do this", and then I took control of my thoughts and told myself that "yes, I can do this and I'll be just fine." And to my great surprise, I was absolutely fine. I went to bed and fell right to sleep, woke up this morning feeling good, got my daughter off to school no problem and spent the day as if it were any other. I was thrilled when he got home, but very proud of how well I did and how I was able to keep my thoughts towards the positive and not let the scary stuff in. Just wanted to share some good news.
