Thank you, everyone, for the reassurance. Been a nerve-wracking month so far. This picture was hard to make and harder to post, but worth it; she needed to get out.
@Pixey, thank you! I try but sometimes it seems like several days attack me at once!
@welshblue, thanks! I can relate...the anxiety's always been there, but the panic attacks started almost six months to the day after my favorite uncle died. It felt like a heart attack. *shudders* Thank goodness for modern medicine!
@barbieq25, thank you. It comes and goes lately. I really prefer the "go" parts!
@Seerose, thank you hon! *hugs back* It was cathartic, even if the picture came out kinda disturbing.
@lynxster4, thank you! Glad yours have abated. The ones that are just physical are *somewhat* more bearable, although they're all ghastly. The racing thoughts are the worst.
@Scooter, thank you! The bonbon and tea worked wonders, and the gold star was a nice addition to my collection of celestial goodies. And the only critters I trust when it comes to food are birds; cats, dogs, unicorns, all the rest of them exaggerate. Greedy buggers.
Thank you all, my dear friends. You have no idea what a healing place this is.
