Wait a minute!!! There is no cure for anxiety?!? Whoa! I feel every time I am struck with anxiety or panic attacks I must find an absolute cure. They are so debilitating and consuming that I feel there MUST be a cure for them.
I have just gone through one of the worst weeks in a long time. I was bound and determined to discover why on earth this was happening to me. Even though I have
been living with this since I was a wee kid.
I have picked up a new fear of traveling. I was supposed to go on a business trip that was 2 hr plane ride and 4 hour drive away. Something I have done for years and always enjoyed. But this time was a no go. I was paralyzed with fear and physically sick and the notion of the thought of this trip. I did not go.
My week was filled with catastrophic thinking, out of this world panic attacks, and bouts of weeping. My plate was full of this horrible stuff.
What I had been researching and with regular visits with my doctor we had discovered this new thing in my life. Premenopause or perimenopause. Oh boy! The information out there is at times overwhelming but also helpful in understanding my symptoms.
I won’t go into it here but I figure this is what is giving life my anxiety and panic. I will say that a strong support system is necessary and bless each and everyone of them for standing beside us and telling us you will get through it. I have some things I am going to try going forward and hopefully they work and get me through this hormonal mess. I miss traveling so
very much. But in time I will get past it.
