Drs Orders

I got to go to the doctor yesterday and I was s excited to finally get in. I explained the series of events that led up to the last week and a half. I’ve been just barely functioning with the anxiety attacks because they come and they linger. The last week, I’ve only had a few good hours during the middle of the day when I don’t feel like I’m about to die.

It all started with dizziness and faintness before Christmas, then turned into panic attacks when I had environmental stresses and now is there most of the time and isn’t following much of a pattern. Anyhow, I explained all of it to the Doctor lady and she has ordered blood work, given me a referral for a therapist and prescribed me Lorazepam.

I took half a pill after my appointment and 20 minutes later I felt like a human again. I’m hoping they won’t find any physical cause for the symptoms in the blood work, but it’ll be a relief to get it over with. I hate needles. I’ll have to fast Monday night to get ready for the blood stuff on Tuesday and I’ll have another update then. For now, I’m glad to have a little relief.
