oh panic attacks eh? I know all about that, it got so bad I had to start taking prozac and let me tell you, it has made a big diffrence in my life. i think the ordeal of the whole thing, surgery, recovery and the big trauma my body and mine went throu is what caused my panic attacks, but prozac and theraphy has helped a lot, mostly the medication i must say. Dont let it get too bad, get help for your panic attacks before they turn into a phobia like mine started to.
We met the other day at your work. I want to thank you again for fixing my plan so it won't look like a Ferrari payment. I talked about my visit with you with some guys I work with and mentioned your pending surgery. We will send up prayers for your speedy recovery. Remember, we have a date. I will be there september 27th to get my new wireless device for my laptop. See you then.
Best wishes, Jim :)
Hi Jessica and welcome.
Breathe. Breathe. Breathe. Slow, deep breaths. I have also had a long wait for my surgery, but am heading to the Cleveland Clinic on Saturday for my surgery on April 21. At last! I can relate to your missing your puppy. We have 7 dogs and I just hate leaving them in someone else's care. Having started this journey at an anxiety level #10 and having gotten it down to a zero, I can tell you that you will adjust and accept it all - in time. There is a lot of good information on the HVJs - so read all you can. I have mentioned specific methods for relieving anxiety in my journal if you want to take a look. My best wishes to you for a very successful surgery and speedy recovery and getting home to your puppy.
