Hi everyone hope all is well with everyone! Myself same ol woke up shaking and nervous got into a arugument last night with my husband he was kind of mean about stuff he feels i'm not working hard enough to fight this illness and he said that just because i'm sick it's like nobody else can have a bad day. So that cut pretty deep. I wish I had a place to runaway too cause i would. I was hoping today would be a good day but it still can be. Had a panic attack right off still shaking from that. I just feel so alone and now even more so since my husband is acting this way. I try to be "normal" as much as I can for him and it seems like he doesn't even recognize it. For awhile he was congratulating me on my progress after leaving the hospital, Thats been 11 days ago now now he says i'm not working hard enough but i truly am trying i just have bad moments and bad days. I feel like now i truly am alone in this battle and i don't know what the best option for me is to do. Thanks for listening April

Good Morning, and I am sorry you are feeling shaky.  It does sound to me like your husband is verbally abusive with you and this is not right.  Do you have any other support person in your life?

You are normal, April and please remember you have a disorder you are not asking to feel the way you do.
How you perceive your own thoughts, behaviors and functioning can help determine what's normal for you. Do not let your husband tell you what is normal for you.  Do try to stay in the moment.

Getting daily exercise may be the single most important thing you can do to improve your overall health. Do try to get out today and just take a walk. 

Gentle hugs and take care of you.

Hey, April! The shaking is coming from the release of adrenalin. It's harmless and it can only go on for so long. Remind yourself of that.

I can totally relate about the husband thing. I don't discuss my anxiety with him much anymore. I have friends I call or I talk to all the wonderful friends on here.

You seem to be keeping track of the days you've been out of the hospital. I want you to forget the hospital stay. I want you to think about other things. Pleasant things. Find a hobby that you enjoy. Preferably something that takes up your mind and keeps your hands busy.

Lastly, don't try to be "normal" for anyone. All that does is create more stress and anxiety. Accept whatever feelings/symptoms come your way. Know that you won't die and that they will pass. I'll be thinking about you!
