Anxious Tonight - Triggery

Ok, this might not be to triggery, but just in case.. I'm extremely anxious today. I have a Dr's appointment tomorrow for something I've wanted my whole life. I'm terrified she is going to say no I can't have it.

I tried to reach out to my brother (he didn't return my call), to my father (he has a bad cold), my Aunt (she has company) and my friend (she's playing with her daughter who is turning 4 tomorrow. I probably wouldn't have talked about it with any of them except my friend, but just talking to someone and listening to their problems, calms my anxiety.

I'm a freaking wreck, shaky, racing thoughts, unable to think clearly, the whole nine yards. I guess I just wanted to vent. I need to be heard.

Thanks,
Kate_Te

Maybe you could try calling back? Maybe as it gets a little later people won't be do busy- like 4 year old goes to sleep and then her mama has time to talk... If not, what else can you do to relax and distract yourself? Take a warm bath, watch something on TV, read a book, talk here about other people's issues.... ? I hope tomorrow goes well for you!

It went well. Now I have to have a bunch of blood tests while she consults with some experts in the field to see what I can take and what I can't.

Thanks for asking Caprice.

Thanks for asking Fran, & Thank you Caprice, B & OTW

Yeah, the Doctor seems very willing to work with me. She is very nice. She just needs to speak with some cardiologists and some endocrinologists who have worked with people with heart issues.

Looks like no issue for the anti-androgens (the meds that stop testosterone), but she's not sure about the estrogen.

I hope things go well with your husband!
