Medical Update

I'm not feeling the greatest right now. Why? Well, I feel like I could have a panic attack. Am I stressed? Well, I have lots on my mind, but nothing too crazy happened within the last few hours. Maybe it's the lack of sleep... I slept only a couple hours last night. I'm so tired as I'm writing this, but I want to wait another hour before I head to bed. I usually have no problem falling asleep... but I always seem to wake up too early and can't fall back asleep.

This past week I saw the psychiatrist, and I set a couple goals:

  • Cook fresh at least three times a week.
  • Exercise on treadmill at least three times a week.
  • Wake up and get dressed every morning at a regular time.

So far I cooked last night as well as tonight. Simple and easy recipes, but the fact that I was able to do it was a big improvement. However, I feel wiped out and completely exhausted. I actually feel mentally ill, and fighting off a panic attack. Normally I find it so hard to even get out of bed in the morning, or even in the afternoon. I've sort of gone back to old habits a bit of my depressive agoraphobic behavior. Hopefully once I start walking on the treadmill more, I will start feeling better. For now... time to take my Clonazepam and Seroquel to relax and have a sleep. Goodnight everyone.

  2. I know exactly how you feel. Some days I even hide in my closet when the phone rings ... like that's going to help. But honestly, it sort of does.
    I find just getting up and taking a shower is a big start. Usually if I can make myself do that, I can make myself go for a walk.
    Baby steps.
    It's a tough one, but you're not alone.
