Hey Kath! Good to hear from you!
I've been so fatigued I can't sit here very long.
Partly I think 'the heat' and 'stress' and maybe too much Xanax as I am prescribed 2mg 3x a day.
But, I did just two errands yesterday and in the middle of one, I had a really severe panic attack. Felt like couldn't breathe, ya' know elephant sitting on chest feeling, feeling like you're going to have a heart attack.
Have you had them before?
They make you feel like you need to sit down and have something to drink and, well, for me, ... to light up a cigarette and really relax.
There is never anything particular which precipitates them.
I haven't had one in quite some time, don't think. In fact, I think I've only had maybe 2-3 since began on Xanax v. Valium.
I can't remember now if I had more on Valium or on Xanax.
I looked at my watch when the panic attack hit and saw it was about 45m to 1hr after the scheduled dosage time of Xanax, so that probably had a lot to do w/ it, and, I was in the middle of an 'unpleasant Wal-*art shopping experience'.
Nothing is where it should be in those stores and if you finally get to where whatever it is should be, there are none there!
(Whoops; almost ended like a letter! :)
Stay well (((you)))!
