Oh my goodness! It has been a very rough few days for me and now I am coming out of the roughness now. I cannot explain all that happened but I can state that anxiety and panic was real bad and yesterday, I cracked – sick. I was in tears, telling my support systems that something was wrong, muscles contracted so much that it just hurt. I remembered getting sick with a bug last Tuesday evening and could not eat anything for a while. I really could not eat anything up until today to be very honest. I thought I was constipated but according to the ER doctor, I was not. Yes, I went to the ER because I was still not feeling well. Anxiety and panic took over after the bug I had last week making my body react to it to the point it drove me to the breaking point and my body was unable to relax. The doctor did not let me leave until I was calmer and things in my head was becoming more clear and my muscles began to relax on their own just being where I knew I was safe and going to be taken good care of. I was at the hospital for 2 1/2 hours and sent home to drink two nutrition drinks and take a Clonazepam for the night so I can get some sleep. I could not really sleep for a few days. I slept last night. My friend left at 3 am this morning and when I called her this morning on my way to my appointment at 11 am, I asked her what time did she leave and that I was sleeping good and knew it would be okay and if I had awakened in a panic, I would have called her. Appointment went well.
