It's been a couple of days since my last post
Ummm I've been doing better but last night I had a panic attack horrible one but initially 11 days since my last attack not bad right?
It did cause me to feel like a failure because I was doing better and almost back to my joyful self, and I don't want to let the people around me down but I talked about it and analyzed that it was bound to happen I went 28hrs without sleeping taking care of my lil one who ended up in the hospital ( they are doing better now thank God) and I had a much needed coffee break ( something I had given up for almost 3 months) and the combination made me freak out (hypochondria moment)
As soon as I made the connection my attack stopped and I was able to enjoy the rest of the night and get some much needed sleep
I did well today but I dunno if being at the hospital exposed me to the flu or what not my chest feels congested but I'm not coughing or have mucus it's just that tightness and sore ribs (but that might just be from my panic attack, I cried bad)
All in all what's helped me is staying positive and distractions. and when I would feel dizzy or short of breath, breathing exercises.
And telling anxiety to go away. Silly I know but oddly works for me
How have you all been??
