I can not believe that January is over and we are into a new month.
Well for me the month started off to a great start, I am having counselling and feeling more positive about things was looking forward to returning to work and other things that I have signed up to do but my health situation has got it’s own agenda.
I was starting to get into a good place with myself mentally, which was having some positive affects with my lifestyle, I was finding myself getting up at good times and actually started doing things round the house more like cleaning and washing clothes that had been piling up.
I went to go do my weekly shop at my local supermarket, and everything was going great, until half way round I felt like I had hit a wall and some was stabbing me repeatedly in my chest, everything around me started to blur and I could not move, like I had been grounded.
At first I did not know what was happening to me and I was scared, but that was not the only one I had that week I ended up having 3 more. I rang my doctor to find out what was going on with me and she said that I was having anxeity attacks.
The week after I was still getting them but not as aggressive as the week before but I do not know if that was because I know what to expect or something else, but what I do know is that I am not liking having these attacks and at the minute I do not seem to have any control over them.
My doctor has given me a 2 month sick note to help me sort my attacks out and hope that in this time I can understand what is making me have them or whether I am going to have this for a long time.
