Uuuuuugh, my body-brain combination are really trying me. I’ve had a nasty cold the last couple of days, which is hopefully cresting right now. At least, I was really dizzy yesterday and am not quite so dizzy today. I managed to tough it out and go out with my family, which was great (especially knowing that I didn’t have to go anywhere or do anything today).
So of course, what happens? I have a freaking panic attack out of nowhere. Literally nowhere — I’m not feeling anxious in the slightest today. I was just sitting here when I felt my chest start constricting. I’m sort of surprised I caught it so early; it’s been a long time since I last had a panic attack. Still, doesn’t make the chest clenching hurt any less, though I managed to keep my head down and keep breathing until the worst of it passed. I’m to the point now where textures are still wibbly, Exhaustion 2.0 is setting in, and I think that one helluva headache is coming in. Potential migraine? I wouldn’t be surprised.
Alas, I can’t even blame this on the Depakote, because I don’t have it yet. I didn’t have my pre-pay prescription card with me when I saw Dr. K, so I told her to go ahead and send the prescription to my doctor and that I would get it from there. They haven’t received it yet, though I keep checking the website. I can certainly hope it’s not Mirena, though I’m more inclined to blame this on over-extending myself yesterday, and getting a bit of sunburn to boot.
Blargh. This too shall pass. But that doesn’t mean I have to like it. *shakes tiny fist of impotent rage*
