Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

@mspaceK that sounds tough.. if you do feel another anxiety attack coming would you be able to contact lifeline or another crisis support service?
In the meantime I’d recommend keeping yourself occupied while waiting for your boyfriend Smiley Happy maybe watching a funny movie could help? Something that will take your mind off things but also calm you down..

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

Thanks @Bananatime04 . My house mate will be home real soon and I've been playing my musical instrument to calm me down. The anxiety is coming in waves so hopefully it settles soon. 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

That’s good @mspaceK Smiley Happy
I hope you feel better once you’re around people..

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

Hi @Jess1-RO . It hasn't exactly been a fun morning but my boyfriend did make me smile and laugh a few times. I had to go to the hospital for a specialist appointment for one of my medical issues going on and as a result I had to have a blood test and now I'm booked into 3 more medical tests to come over the next 2 weeks. It's a bit overwhelming. I had a panic attack trying to park my car this morning and had real bad anxiety all morning. I'm finally home and it has settled a bit. I'm feeling a little tired so I'm going to chill and play my instrument first, then maybe watch tv or play ps4. 

 

Yeah - thanks. I felt like trying to support others to distract myself from me. I hope it helps. 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

I'm in a bit of pain right now Smiley Sad I keep getting this sharp pain in my side when I breathe too deeply and also when I move a certain way. There is nothing I can do except keep still and wait for it to pass. Hopefully my medical tests this time around will give me some answers because this is so frustrating and hard to deal with. 

 

I stopped playing my instrument and now I'm just laying in bed. I'm home alone and I'm feeling kinda tired. I guess I should just try to rest the best I can. 

 

What are you doing today/atm @WheresMySquishy @Tiny_leaf @letitgo @Bananatime04 ? 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

Hi @mspaceK,

 

Hopefully the medical tests can help work out what is going on and give you a way forward Heart You have mentioned having sharp pain, and I want to just check if this is something you need medical attention for at the moment, or if this is something you have experienced before? 

 

If it is something new, do you have anyone with you today that can also check in on your physical health throughout the night? 

 

Pain can be really uncomfortable and exhausting, and it sounds like resting is a good decision. Do you have any distractions you can use while you are resting? Speaking with our community members can be a great distraction too Smiley Happy

 

If you do need medical support, we would encourage you to reach out to emergency services 000 Heart Again, just wanting to make sure you are okay and have options if you need them with the chest pain and difficulty breathing Heart

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

@Jess1-RO I have had this before but it feels especially bad today. It's still hurting right now and I think it's from food I ate this morning or last night but my body really doesn't like it. Like a gall stone or something or my liver I have no idea but that's what the tests will hopefully figure out. 

 

I'm feeling pretty down about it now though because the pain is really consistent right now. Smiley Sad 

 

I have my housemate that I can alert tonight if I need to. 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

I'm having bad anxiety Smiley Sad already tried a helpline. I couldn't stop myself just rocking back and forth on my bed with my hands between my knees. The only thing that seems to help right now is the rocking. Smiley Sad the person from the helpline said that I should call the mental health triage line. I haven't.  Smiley Sad hmmm. 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

Hey @mspaceK

I'm so sorry to hear that you're having such a bad night. It was incredibly brave of you to know that you needed to ask for help, and contact a helpline, even if it you didn't find it as helpful as usual. I just wanted to check in with how you are feeling right now? Have you managed to contact the mental health triage line or talked with your sister about how you are feeling?
