Trying Not To Freak Out: Update

A few days ago I had a massive panic attack. You can read this post to fill you in. Basically, I got blood work done last week.

I have been a little MIA from my blog lately. I’m getting married in two weeks and just started a new job – so yes, you could say my life is just a bit busier than usual. I had a MASSIVE panic attack on Thursday.

It was bad I had to miss my second shift of work. So bad I actually went to the doctors about it. So bad that the doctors prescribed me lorazepam. I didn’t take it, and I don’t know if I’ll ever take it. I was once against anti-anxiety meds – not because I think there’s anything wrong with them, but because I thought they “weren’t for me.” Well I’ve reached a point where they MIGHT be for me. Not permanently. I know they aren’t a permanent solution. But if that happens again, the overwhelming, life altering panic I experienced on Thursday, I might take one.

I don’t have much else to say right now, but I wanted to blog. My anxiety has been bad, but I feel like an upcoming wedding would give anyone anxiety. We’ll see how the next few weeks go.
