Just not ok.

So I managed to get through having a panic attack while taking a shower. Again. πŸ˜” Still not feeling okay right now. This has been happening to me for the past few years now. I use to enjoy taking showers. Sometimes even twice in a day, for long periods of time. It helped me, relaxed me, it was a place I felt safe, where my privacy wasnt invaded. Now I find myself completely avoiding taking showers for long periods of time, crying and panicking, and feeling like I cannot get clean enough. Feeling violated. All over again. When will these feelings stop😒

I'm so sorry your symptoms are creeping up like that. I can't even imagine losing my shower time to anxiety. You are so right, it's a great feeling to get those showers in.

It's something I take for granted. I've never thought about my symptoms being stirred up in the shower.

I hope this gets under control for you soon. You deserve that time to be peaceful.

Thinking of you and wishing you peace

I'm so glad to hear that. You are so welcome. Panic is tough. The way we feel after is just so draining.

Yes thank you. I am doing well. Let's give today our best shot for moments of peace.

Sounds good to me 😊 ((hugs))

Having a place and time for me to be me, no matter how I am feeling, without trying to put on my brave face helps me. We just need time and a little courage to try again at some point in the future. Remember to be kind to yourself, my very best wishes.
