Yes I am praising myself! Today I asked my mate Neil to take me to Worksop..the nearest town close to me that I havn't been to since DECEMBER.... the last time I went was pure panic and I have actually throught the years had some of my worst panic attacks in this town...But today I just needed to go to one shop (not in the town centre) and I could get out the car and pop into the shop and out again! But ..... on the way there the symptoms started!!!!! First as I got in the car at my house I started with the ectopics...then I calmed down and as I got about 2 miles away I nearly said to Neil to turn back as my heart was pounding a little and I was hot....I said "Oh Neil what a lovely day, can I open the window"...but after 2 mins Neil was freezin! LOL but i thought NOPE I aint telling Neil to turn back yet...sO I carried on ...got to the shop and got out the car...My chest went as tight as a bugga ... but I carried on, got me tiles and said! "Neil if I could let you have a minute in my body to let you taste the battle that is going on you would be amazed" ...Neil said " Why have you been panickin" told him how I had felt and he said "well you have done well then Rach"....which made me feel good.....I am trying to accept the fact that when I push myself and get all the feelings of panic to understand these are only symptoms and I am sure with practice and perseverence they may fade away. I have done well on me diet these past two days and I feel loosing weight will help my anxiety.... as I may not look it as I am tall but I don't mind telling you guys I am 17.5 stone.... I have put weight on this yr due to lack of walking around etc....So hopefuly a new Rach might help things eh! piccy is of Worksop town center!
