New and Scared



  • :H I'm Deb and new here too...wanted to say Hi and glad you found us. this is a good place with good people who understand our pain.

    I also had a 'litle anxiety problem' that flew out of control after a work injury, MVA, 2 resulting surgeries and chronic pain. I deveoped PTSD from the lawsuit involving the MVA. Long story short: I totally get the anxiety factor girl!!!

    In fact I was up most of last night worrying about my MRI results which are pending. I also have a new injury with resulting leg problems and I have lost weight too, have poor appetite, and also find myself thinking the worst.. :(

    but we must actively take a role in positive thoughts and affirmations, while also being an advocate for ourselves. Something I have to fight against is minimizing my symptoms ...blowing them off to 'anxiety' or 'my fibro'. :<

    Good for us for starting the investigation! But worrying serves no useful purpose other than dragging us down further, so we must work on ways to deter this. Maybe your meds need to be increased at this time???Can you talk to your doc about this? How are you sleeping??

    I Hope you can do some deep breathing exercises, find some relaxation tapes and quiet times, (whatever has helped your anxiety in the past...use it now) and help dear family understand Mama and wife 'don't feel good ' so give her a break. :)

    We care. let us know what you find out. PM me if you wish!
