I think I’m doing a little better today. Trying to get over catastrophic/ doom and gloom thinking… racing thoughts… panic attacks… an odd hit of unfocused hyperactivity… and other head circus gifts that are trying resurface.
This is when I feel like a little kid in the worst way. Other people can spend the night alone. They don’t go to pieces when they are left to their own devices. I’m going to be alone for a few days… in theory.
I’m going to have to try and be alone, but I bet I’ll panic and run to my parent’s house. This was a hard morning for me. I admit it… both my sis and I got a bit teary when she was packing and getting ready to leave.
My sis and Mom are doing a road trip to get to a cousins wedding. They left a few hours ago before sunrise to get well out of Seattle before morning traffic.
It’s just the two of them, driving down to San Diego. It’s a very rare thing not to have my sis around. I don’t like it. I did everything I could to try and go with them. But Mom said No, it’s a mother/ daughter thing.
It’s almost a 20 hour drive and a 2 and a half hour flight. So on the 29th, I’m flying with my Dad and other family.
I’ve been having panic attacks about the thought of them driving and getting in a horrendous car crash, the plane crashing, the family thing getting too big and having a break and ruining my cousins wedding. I’ve been high anxiety about almost every detail on this one. I’ve been having mood swings and panic attacks almost everyday lately. My med doses got increased last week. I’m feeling more stable today. I don’t feel so wobbly.
I do feel a bit more tired and a bit more numbed out and still sort of floaty. I do feel slower and less talkative. But it’s not really doing anything for the racing thoughts and the anxiety. I have figured out that the last week in June and the first week in July have always been the very hardest on me, year after year.
I know I’m jumping and rambling. I know it’s so much harder to keep my mind on a sentence and finish it properly. If my post get a little jumble and odd, I apologize in advance.
