After today, I know I am not ready to go back to work. Last night I went to a friends birthday party - survived it ok, but had a panic attack when I got home. Today, all day long, I'm shaking like a leaf. My whole body is shaking, my arms, legs, hands, even my stomach. I'm guessing I need more help before I can do something like return to the workforce.
Going to watch a mindfulness video on the dbt website to try & calm down.

At least you are realizing your limitations right now. You can't rush yourself in doing something major like going into the workforce. That's a big step and if you need more time before that happens, then so be it.

And how great that you keep trying (and succeeding) despite the difficult fallout, Kate. ((((hugs))))

Thank you LM & Caprice -
I appreciate the words of encouragement. Nothing like taking 2 days to recover from a 5 hour party! I'm still twitchy today, but better. I see my T on Thursday and want to give her a piece of my mind over something she said last time. I swear, I'm not as quick as I used to be, it took me til my ride home to realize what she said. Oh well, I guess I'm not cured yet.

I'm glad that you were at least getting out because if you stay home and never let yourself get exposed to things you will get worse. so hats off to you kiddo! i don't think we ever actually get cured but rather we learn to manage or anyway that's what i've been told.
i'm lol because i'm so itchy i could just scream! If God wanted to torcher me he sure figured right. ha ha
i'm sure in your case too. i used to have such panic attacks they would come out of the clear blue and i wouldn't even be thinking anything ab out anything it would just happen. i'm being taken off my klonopin for anxiety and sleep so it should be interesting now that i'm down to one pill what will happen.
i need to call those idiots and see whats up?

sorry my thoughts are coming out here.
!
i wanted to add that i'm really proud of you! it doesn't matter how long it takes in our journey to get feeling better does it? I hope not or i'm doomed but rather the journey itself. you really need to pat yourself on the back!
One day at a time

Thank you BB & Dem -
I guess I'm no different then a lot of us here. I want it to stop & I want it to stop now! I understand it's a journey, but I don't like the journey (LOL). Thank you both for your encouragment!
BB - I really hope your shingles go away soon!
Dem - I hope the love you receive from this board is enough for you to realize you are someone worth fighting for.

Lovely Woman, you will never be "cured" but you will learn to overcome and keep on keeping on. You have incredible strength and motivation.

I suffer from fibro-fog when I'm not disassociating so I hear you on the not as quick.

Hugs,
Bonnie

But Bonnie, I want to be cured. waaah, waaah. lol
Okay, no one's ever accused me of being sane. I gave my T a piece of my mind yesterday. She apologized. Then later in the session, I felt like an idiot, because I couldn't remember my telephone number (even got the first 3 numbers wrong). I went to a group therapy session afterward & got to come home to the shakes. Such fun!
Bonnie, Sorry about your Fibromyalgia. <3
Dem, I love you too!

Kate-Te,

Thank you for the smile. I forget my phone number also. I mean really, how often do I call myself. lol.

Define sane. I do not think anyone is really "sane."

Your idea of fun, going home to the shakes... made me think of that song: What really turns me on is the shake... Shake it to the left, shake it to the right, come on baby you know what I like, shake it real funky, shake it real slow, ... lol.

I hope you are better today.

Hugs,
Bonnie
