Can’t stop shaking and crying

Hi I don’t know who to talk to 😢 Had to go hospital today to take a full blood count. Had a nap woke up to a missed call saying I need to go back and repeat the test? I asked why!? She said I it was a little high? I spoke to the manager on duty and she said no it’s not high just an error with the machine? Why did the other lady say high CBC ? And Your saying machine error? Im waiting for my taxi and I’m very scared all I google is leukemia 😢😢😢 i will repeat the test again this is a private clinic and they call a few hours after. I can’t sleep till I know It’s ok

I was shaking so so much after I hung up and had a brief panic attack won’t inform hubby and quietly go.... hate this feeling I want to vomit

I’m sorry sweetie I understand! I am just like you. It will be ok. My Mom tells me to imagine beautiful things in my mind like arranging flowers or whatever you like. It’s a good distraction. 💛 -hugs-

I too have experienced panic attacks around medical tests, even phone calls from the dr, just seeing the caller ID would trigger me. What kind of help have you gotten for this in the past that has worked for you? I'm so sorry you are suffering.

Thank you so much for your replies! They just called me my blood count all fine and within range xx

I cried with joy! I know google is very bad for us but I’m my own worse enemy got myself in such a pickle I was shaking so so bad.

Note to myself just relax it will it will it will be ok x any blood tests any results I’m a mess. I avoid doctors as much as I can as it’s not worth the stress it puts on me... thought was going to faint

Thank you all for your support ❤️
