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. On Wednesday, they called me in saying it was nothing serious, but my doctor wanted to see me. “Nothing serious” translated into “you’re dying” for me and I absolutely freaked out.

I am trying not to freak out this second, but you’ve caught me in the middle of a panic attack. I think I’ve written one other post in the midst of the storm, but I just want to remind you guys that this will probably be rambly and not make a whole lotta sense.

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.
I like this picture. But, I also don’t like it. There are some things about it that I do think are true, and can relate to. But I also think it makes some pretty harsh assumptions about anxiety sufferers. Let me elaborate. Continue reading “Anxiety Cycle”
…When I’m having a panic attack. Have you ever seen the way two-year olds act? Sometimes they can be pretty adorable. But other times…you just want someone to make them shut up. Well, I realized something. When I have a panic attack…I act like a two-year old. Seriously. Continue reading “I Am a Two-Year Old”
