I woke up in a panic attack this morning cuz I was 20 mins late for my appt to find out if I have gest diabetes and was going to skip it then started panicking cuz I thought I might die if I didn't go and get checked...
well I don't know if I have it or not but I took a nap cuz the three hour testing sucked..
thank you all for your kind words...
meg- I seem to have all three kinds of panic attacks at any given time blaaaaaah
june and alwaysanxious- I got myself out of a panic attack last night from doing some breathing exercises.. maybe I"ll have to try this claires books
lyn- I'm just so dang frustrated and sick of this disorder... I KNOW i'm preggo but still... why can't I have this picture-perfect pregnancy of other panic sufferers where their panic just DISAPPEARS lol
wen- I don't get the point of trying to figure out the cause of the panic attacks either. I'm sure all of you have had a panic attack where you just couldn't pinpoint where it came from! UGH
percy- in the Lucinda Bassett thing she says "no place is a safe place" and that "You are your safe person and there is no safe person either" well then THAT made me FEEL CRAZY and now I don't feel like I have a safe place and I wig out and UGH I think these tapes are doing more harm than good.
badgenetics- I'm still on my meds...
kitt- I feel like I keep messing up the dang lucinda program because you're supposed to do it EVERYDAY but honestly... I can't do it everyday because its so repetitive and I dunno.. makes me anxious...
I just am starting to remember all the times when I panicked as a kid and how I never felt comfortable anywhere even in my own house because my father would just SCREAM 24/7 like a drunken sailor about the dumbest things... and if he came through the door we'd (me and my sis) would run to our rooms and hide because you never knew what he was going to scream about this time.
Maybe that's where this comes from.
It feels better to be on here.. I shouldn't stay away dangit... I thought I'd try to focus on the program for a couple weeks but I just don't get it.. and I feel like I'm in math class in junior high and failing LOL
