    My dog had a seizure today...

    I’m sorry. As someone who has been going through health issues with my dog I know how hard the anxiety can hit about it. Glad he’s doing bettter!

    And it continues

    What a truly weird and stressful week it has been dealing with my dogs health, which he seems to be fine now but I’m still very much hyperaware of everything he does, his breathing and “snorting” in particular, which is making the anxiety higher with the “well he’s ok with this but what if it’s that?” And now my husband has a red itchy elbow. Just the one side. I believe it only started yesterday. I did what I shouldn’t have and google searched it. Luckily everything I found said it’s “common” and usually is nothing unless these extra symptoms occur. Which they haven’t and I’m sure would have by now. At least we have some hydrocortisone itch cream already and I made him put some on. He said it’s less itchy this morning and doesn’t look as red. But I can’t stop thinking about it I just need the next 3 days to go somewhat decently. Too much to ask for?

    Stressful week ahead.

    Hi, the vet called earlier today and said that his blood work is normal. It’s most likely a minor UTI. Liver and kidneys are normal. Such a huge relief.

    @Angelica Schuyler he seems normal. But we are waiting for the results of the blood work to see if it shows anything more serious going on. Hoping it’s just a UTI. My friend said her dogs, both male, have gotten it and it sounds like the same symptoms to her.

    We rushed him back to the vet today because he was peeing all over the house in large amounts. The vet said it could be a number of things and they are doing blood work now. Praying it’s not kidney related. My poor little guy. I’m not ready to loose him.

    Got the results back from the needle test and his lump is just a fatty lump! Phew! But now, he developed some weird what the vet thinks is a bacterial infection in/around his penile area. But again the vet doesn’t seem concerned. Says these things happen.

    Stressful week ahead.

    Thanks @Jennie048 glad your girls is good. My boys is 10 this month. He has had a fatty lump since he was like 2. The vets are never concerned about it. It’s “big” but nothing that bothers him. I know they say they get more with age and so hopefully that’s all it is. They are small, and agin the vet didn’t seem too worried. My husband isn’t concerned. And only agreed to the needle test for me but if it turns out to be something needing attention then I’ll be glad we did it. Now ive got to just try and push on. It’s not fair to my boys(dogs) or my husband since his bday is next week that I completely shut down till we get the call... like I want to.

    Stressful week ahead.

    The next week was already going to be stressful, getting ready for my husbands 40th birthday, my sister coming in for it and all the stuff still left to do. And now it’s even more so. I know this may not be the place but it is health related and it is affecting my anxiety. So we just took our dog to the vet to have a lump need tested. He has 2 we are concerned about. The vet didn’t seem concerned about them, he didn’t even recommend the test. But my friend took her dog in because she was limping, and it ended up being a massive tumor that spread and she was in pain so they put her down that same day. I know this is an extreme situation, and it is also making me extra sensitive and cautious but better safe than sorry. Now all I keep thinking is The C word. All I see are add for it on Tv and every show I watch keeps mentioning it. We should know in 3-5 days. Praying it’s just more fatty lumps!

    Uh oh, new worry.

    Thank you @bin_tenn. I’ll do my best to not obsess over it.
  10. Sumotherguy

    Uh oh, new worry.

    Thanks for the responses @Kindra. I’m trying to fight the urge. Rationally I know its nothing serious and that it can happen to anyone. He’s also a occasional mouth breather/drooler in his sleep so I’m sure that doesn’t help.

    Uh oh, new worry.

    Hi guys. I’m back. So today my husband told me that one of the corners of his lip/mouth is cracked and bleeding a little bit. I know this happens and it’s not a huge deal it’s just annoying and heals quick but my anxiety kicked in and now I’m trying not to go google searching. It’s happened to me a long while ago when I kept licking my lips because I ran out of chapstick. Going to try and not let it get to me or bug him about how it’s doing. Ugggh. Not what I need right now. Too much going on I need a (somewhat) clam clear head.

    No job equals more anxiety

    Thanks @Bobnnat, lesson learned. I didn’t want the job (retail) but I would take it to have something. Next time I’ll be more guarded.

    No job equals more anxiety

    I had a job interview earlier this month. I thought it went well. I met with the owner and he said to figure out what days I could work and needed off as they would be making decisions quick and I should expect a call... it never happend. No call. I’ve calls back but the manager is “never there” or “busy” and never returns my calls. I did something in the interview I never do. I told them about my anxiety. Normally i just play off my 5 years not working or give a vague “it was for health reasons but I’m good now” but this time I told them thinking of how I was doing it wasn’t working maybe this would? I guess not. I have been on countless interviews and nothing. The more and more I have to be home alone the more and more my health anxiety is creeping back up. I’ll be fine one minute and then I get this... hummm have you checked out _____ to make sure it looks “normal” and I’m right back in the bathroom in mirror with a flashlight. I wasnt ready for a job. But as of last year I was and I’ve found NOTHING. Maybe it really is just me and people don’t like me. Even when I think I’m being nice and funny. I must just truly suck.

    A lot going on.

    Thank you @Kindra. It seems like every hour is a take it hour by hour. Summer absolutely SUCKS for me.
  15. Sumotherguy

    A lot going on.

    So we’re looking for a new place to live. We put in an application for a house 2 days ago and waiting to hear back. Which is causing my anxiety to FREAK out!  I’ve already talked to a DR about some sometimes itchy small spots on my legs he said they were nothing serious probably just heat related. But yet I keep looking at them and letting the anxiety mind take over. Also add the fact that my husbands 40th birthday is coming up so I’m trying to plan that, our place now is always hot, the air conditioner sucks(my anxiety is always worse in summer), and I’m trying to keep my exercising up at home (I don’t like gyms) and trying to job hunt... it’s all a lot.
