It’s been a while since I’ve posted. For the past 5 days I’ve had this horrible cough/chest cold.
of course my anxiety is in full force thinking it’s something terrible and life threatening. I went to urgent care to have assurance my lungs were clear and she said everything sounded very clear and it was just going to have to run it’s viral course. She gave me pills as a cough suppressant but reading about
them they numb your throat and chest area and lord knows that would send me into much worse anxiety then they are worth. Ugh, my anxiety has been such a struggle lately, does anyone else notice it runs rampid when your sick? I’m so frustrated. My eyes seem to be effected this time; in that I mean I’m very aware for some reason or another that there’s congestion in my head and chest and it’s literally making me feel crazy and anxious and I try of course to not make it obvious so I blame a headache and go in the other room and calm myself down. I don’t want everyone to think I’m crazy for how I’m feeling. Any support or “I know how you feel”s would be great.... thank you all.
