I don't know what's wrong with me. I can go for months without an episode and suddenly out of nowhere I get these anxiety attacks that have me feeling trapped, hanging on to "normal life" by the tips of my fingers and a complete dread of getting up and going to work. I'm high functioning, but lately - the past month - that is a struggle. I'm afraid to ask my boss off so I can rest and recharge, since I broke my ankle earlier this year and was out of the office for six weeks. But if I don't get out of this situation, I don't know what is going to happen.
I have an appointment with my physchiatrist in a week, but I'm not sure I can hold on that long. I have soooo many things that have fallen by the wayside while this takes over my life - the house hasn't been cleaned, my personal hygiene is suffering, etc. Help!
