Did You Know?

I play in a band (or played I really don't go out of town anymore so we're kinda at a standstill).  Two christmas's ago we were asked by the local radiostation to appear in the Christmas parade. When we were on the float I got a bad panic attack.  The float was moving so slow and then all the streets were blocked off ( it was awful).  And then the parade ended at a park.  It was a oneway street that went all around the park.  Everyone was trying to get out and our car was about two miles away at the start of the parade.  We finally got back to the truck, then we had to play at a local restaurant for radio winners (private party). All in all in was a pretty awful experience that should have been a good one.

constantly checking my pulse

i actually should know better ... i was in the lvn program and my girlfriend is a nurse .... it helps in the way that when i feel that i can't breathe ... to see that my o2 sats are up like 98 so then i know that i'm fine so my pulse will immediately start to go down.

has anyone heard?

   I don't believe that the world will end in 2012, and if you do well then you should allow your belief to motivate you to start living your life to the fullest.  Bottom line, "the world ends, for those who die".

Think I'm dying.....all the time

I've been dying for five years now.  My girlfriend "the nurse" reminds me of that everytime I get a really bad panic attack.  I've been there.  I've gone to the ER so many times that I feel that they just assume that I'm having a panic attack again. 
I even had my tonnsels removed.  It's been really hard to accept that it's just anxiety.  I'm the type of person that if somthing is broke I fix it.  But I just have to accept that this is somthing that I'm just gonna have to live with.  And maybe that's the fix.  Don't anybody give up .....

Lousy Day

Cm,
 
You'll be fine .... in the end.  You're still here with us.  I've been having troubles of my own.  I've been working since about Oct. but, now I don't want to be home.  Every day I think I'm dying and everyday ..... I don't .... for the last five years.  I'm thinking of joining a local group here in town also ... just don't know if I can afford it. Or if I should spend my money.  Money's tight right now.
