From bad to worse

Mar 21, 2016 8:32 PM

Lately my anxiety has been shocking which brings my pain level up. I use my breathing exercises to bring me out of the anxiety attack but then my pain is crazy bad and I can't do anything except take meds and lay down. I'm enrolling in a course and I'm hoping that will take my mind off things a bit so I'm not constantly thinking about it. My insurance is cutting off my payments which means I'm trying to put my car repayments on hold..... Which isn't working out so well... Such is life with chronic pain! Fun times
Hope all is well with everyone else, sending love!

KickPainsButt... I hear you loud and clear!! It becomes a viscious cycle. I hope that the course you want to take helps you to focus on other things and quells those anxiety attacks. I suffer from them so I know!! Sending you {{Hugs}} and prayers that everything falls into place for you and things get easier. 💕🙏🏻🌻😊

Cheers alwayz! Ur hugs and prayers mean so much! Currently 3am and been sleeping bout 10 mins for every hour... I wake up and my first though is "are you serious, go to sleep!!!" Apparently my pain just wants to sleep!

LOL!!! I understand completely. I have had no more than an hour to an hour and half sleep a day/night for the last 8 days. It's exhausting! My body wants to sleep and the pain says a big F*ck You!!! I hope you manage to get some rest, that always helps some with the pain and also with the anxiety and crap that comes along with all the rest. Hang in there, I'm here for you and so is the rest of your CMP family. {{{{Hugs}}}} 💕🙏🏻🌻😊
