At the doctor today. It seems like just a couple months ago I was here for my depression. I’m here again. More so because my panic attacks are causing me depression.
When I panic I fear that all will walk away. I fear that this episode that will push them all away from me.
Fear drives panic and panic drives fear. It’s a never ending vicious cycle. So today I sit here courageously doing again what I thought I would never do, get medication.
I used to fear some of these drugs. I still do, but as a believer in medicine I believe that when all other therapies don’t work, pharmaceuticals are probably the next tool I need in my tool box. It’s foolish to not utilize the tools available to us when we need them.
So today’s agenda something to handle the panic attacks that is quick and effective. Hopefully sleep is the result from that.
