    The medication is supposed to act as training wheels while the patient adjusts his thinking. Rule #1 - how we think determines how we feel Rule #2 - how we feel determines how we act. Remember what you were able to do thinking-wise while on the medications. Those same skills will work. If anxiety impedes in life function, it's a disorder. Healthy anxiety would be - walking alone in a dark, unfamiliar area. Your antenna are up - fight or flight. It's understandable that one would be on edge - it's a situation that can go in any direction. That feeling is common to everyone and every animal.

    Thank you so much for the reply. You’re right, I am punishing myself and I don’t know how to stop. I am a runner. I went for a run because that usually helps, but lately nothing is helping. I really wonder if I’m a lost cause.

    I went to the ER last night. I developed a lump on my forearm and convinced myself it was a blood clot. A massive panic attack ensued. They gave me an ultrasound of my arm and my neck and my veins were clear. Well the panic never really went away, and now I’m having weird sensations in my legs. It feels like a burning in my veins and now I can’t breathe. I went for a run just to blow off some steam and now I feel like vomiting. I just don’t know how to feel better and I’m really really struggling. I can’t stop crying. My first appointment with my first therapist ever is on Wednesday but I’m really thinking I should check myself into a psych ward until then. Please help.
