Back Into The Swing Of Things

Hello, Readers!

I am back from my weekend vacation. Wow, it was so amazing. We did a lot of things that we don’t normally do when we are out in Salt Lake City, which included a historical tour of the area via a restored trolley. It was such a blast to spend time with the hubby and son.

No stress, not a lot of phones or really any electronics. It was just us laughing, talking, and hanging out. I think it was something all three of us needed.

After an extremely restless night for me last night, I woke up to an anxiety attack once more. It was one of the more severe ones with twitching, flight responses at max, and a horrible time period of waiting for the medicine to kick in so that it would deplete enough I could fall back to sleep.

I tried to handle it on my own for an hour before I had to wake up the hubby man, poor guy had to work today on top of it. I felt so bad, but I couldn’t get it under control at all.

By the time the medicine kicked in and I could sleep I got a few more hours of sleep. However, true to most days when the anxiety attacks are that bad it has left me feeling drained, questioning what caused it to spike like that after such a great weekend, and extremely antisocial.

My anxiety is getting worse and worse. It is almost out of control anymore. I’ve gone for an attack during spring and fall to attacks once a month. Now, there are several in any given month.

I know my body is trying to tell me something, but I simply haven’t figured it out yet. Either way, it may be time to make an appointment with a physician to see if we can get to the bottom of it. I can’t keep living a drained life like this.

Now, I still need to get my writing in. That is another thing that I need to get on top of once more. I’m so behind.

Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.

  1. I have issues with anxiety as well, so I know where you’re coming from. Thankfully, I’m on medication now that helps a great deal. I still have my moments, but for the most part, it keeps me feeling normal-ish. Hope you can find what helps yours.

    1. I have medication now that generally keeps it better controlled, but for some reason it was spiking that day and not even that was helping. It’s back under control and I’m feeling much better.

      1. Glad you’re feeling better. Sometimes mine gets out of control too. Usually when there’s a lot going on and the stress gets to me or my hormones are out of control.
