So-I got through my first week of school
But I am beyond exhausted and I am starting to feel extremely run down.
I have been trying so hard to get my rest, but this week was filled with a lot of other things outside of school. Serafena, as you mentioned in response to my "what a mess" post-I have to be getting my sleep. Surprisingly my mood hasn't been too bad, I honestly think I haven't had time to even have a mood! But my panic and anxiety symptoms are so bad right now. I am having a major panic attack now, it's been going on for over half an hour (I took my Clonazepam)...shallow breathing, racing heart, and extremely dizzy. It's taking me forever just to type this. The nausea is really awful...I'm just feeling so sick with these anxiety sypmtoms.
I'm scared (anxious) that all my symtpoms (bipolar and anxiety) are going to make things really hard for me at school. And what I want is to be able to manage them a bit. I have decided to ask my pdoc for some Trazodone for sleeping. I need to get my rest. Honestly, if I can get that, the fears and symptoms will fade.
Anyway, thanks for reading guys. The first week of school was exciting. I am very happy about it. Just feeling sick, and need to rest this weekend.
