  Today is the day I have to leave for Chicago to take Hubby to hospital, I am freaking out, the last week has been terrible for anxiety and stress it is coming at me from all ways. I am so worried about him but shame on me that I cant help but be worried about me to if I can stay at the hospital for the 8 hours what if I have a panic attack there,How fast can I get to my car etc etc  I guess I am feeling guilty for not just concentrating on getting hubby better, I will have to stay in a hotel for 3 days the traffic is horrible I am sorry I guess I am just being selfesh, last 2 times he was in the hospital for 4 and 10 days we lived in Chicago and I did much better. HELP don't think I can make it.I do have my laptop so I can check in here it always makes me feel better. eyes

Anna, sorry you have to go through this. I don't think you're being selfish at all. I worry about what I would do if I needed to take my kids to the hospital. It's downtown and I'd have to take the thruway which gives me panic attacks. You will get through it though. We are stronger than we think in times of crisis. Can you bring some relaxing books and magazines with you? Maybe you could arrange to see some old friends while your in Chicago? Maybe they could meet you at in the lobby or nearby just so you have some support? Good luck with everything. Hope your hubby is ok too.

if we can convince ourselves that something absolutely must be done, we do it

there are many cases of severa anxiety sufferers going well outside their comfort zone when neccessary

needless to mention an adequate supply of benzos would make things much easier

recovered former longtime anxiety and panic attack sufferer and helper of other sufferers  but no training or  qualifications in medicine or psychology, any remarks that may be taken as advice must be confirmed with doctor or other health professional
