Just as an FYI I put in my notice at the hospital. I can not beleive I am doing this. I have no idea what or where I will work, but my husband makes enough for me to stay home so I am thinking about taking the next year off and getting better. I have been sick for the past 2 weeks and everyday I feel like I am having a heart attack. I went to a anxiety group meeting and it actually made my anxiety worse. The guy I was sitting next to told me a horrible story about a women my age who had anxiety and it turned out to be something else yada yada. Then the instructor told us to never ignore anxiety symptoms and to go to an ER if we feel a sense of doom or have breathing problems as this could signal a heart attack. I think this is retarded advice because I have a panic attack or two everyday. If I went to the ER everytime I felt that way I would have to pull up a cot and live there. I was really looking forward to that meeting and now I feel dissapointed and annoyed. I understand that we are not immortal but if people keep scaring me about my anxiety symptoms then I'll never get over this. Sorry to vent to you all but I have no one else to talk to. Hope everyone is having a good day.

I agree we should not ignore our symptoms HOWEVER, I also believe we know ourselves fairly well. I think what they were trying to get across was to not simply blame all symptoms on anxiety.
