The reason I say that Halloween is a bit freaky for me with anxiety is because I have sooooo much going on tomorrow.
 
In the morning, I drop my son off at school.
 
I have to go buy a camera to take pictures all day long.
 
In the afternoon, I have to be to my sons school for their Halloween parade, which is like 1 p.m.
 
When we get home from school, we have to go to my sisters house, and help them getting ready for Halloween.
 
Then, we are going to my brothers house, 25 minutes away to go Trick or Treating.
 
Then, we have to go visit my mother.  She wants to see the kids all dressed up, and can't get out of the house to be with anyone.
 
Then, FINALLY, we come home.
 
I am only a little nervous, because that is a lot of busy-ness.
 
I have already decided to take Xanax tomorrow as a precaution, because I have been having too many panic attacks to risk letting something go wrong during this day, ya know?
 
I really think I will be fine, but considering all I have to do, I can't help but be a bit nervous, ya know?
 
Thanks all for listening!!

I know how you feel Tammy! Today was such a busy day for me (just here taking a break)----I was running errands from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.---came home---laid down for a while---now, it's "round 2"! I think Halloween is becoming like Thanksgiving and Christmas: just one big commercialized holiday! Our society has made Halloween such a buy, buy, buy event-----decorations, costumes, candy, paraphanalia for your front yard(sp)---just to deck out for a night!

Kids today don't have to be too creative with costumes like we had to 25+ years ago (it doesn't seem like it's that long ago)-----One year---I was a BAG OF LEAVES! I got a Hefty Trash Bag---went in my backyard---had my friend scoop leaves from our tree into the bag---cinched the top---and VIOLA--costume (although it did itch)---today----you have to buy the costume (or pieces to make a costume), makeup, wigs, shoes, socks, fake nails, fake eyelashes, stuff for your yard, 20+ pumpkins, lights, etc....Don't get me wrong---some of the costumes are SUPER cute----and funny (some gorry)--but, it's just over the top for me!

I think it just adds to all of the stress this time of the year bring!

NOW--for me (yes, I am long winded)---we just carve pumpkins (one ofr each kid), put a couple decorations on the door---and buy candy! I think, for me PERSONALLY, all of the hoopla of the holidays adds stress to my life I DON'T need!


Hang in there----tomorrow is NOV. 1st! I can't wait to relax! ;)

Thanks everyone for your thoughts, and Lyn, no problem about venting off my vent. LOL.

Halloween went great! I went to my sons parade thing, and there was a Dad there who I chatted with when the kids were busy, so my mind wasn't able to wander off. And, watching the kids was so much fun. I was there for 2 and a half hours, and it was FINE. One time I felt nervous when other classes came into my sons class to show off their costumes, and I felt a bit closed in, but I made it through.

After that, I had a lot of running to do, and it was somewhat frustrating, but I got through that.

Trick or treating went fine....again, I had one moment when I realized how far away from my brothers house I was where I wanted to panic, but I didn't.

AND, I took a .25 Xanax at noon, and nothing else, and made it fine til we got home at almost 10 p.m.

I have to say that is rather impressive.

Now, I am on my way to meet with my new pdoc. I am nervous, but if I made it through yesterday, I can and will make it through today!!!!

I will update that when I get back! Now I gotta go get ready.

Thanks all for listening!
