Anxiety VS Heart Attack
I haven’t experience severe anxiety in awhile. Sadly, the past few days I’ve been feeling “off”. My mental health hasn’t been extreme, but I’ve been feeling a little down. I’m wondering if it’s because I’m going to be starting my period. (TMI, I know!) I haven’t been sleeping well, eating well or exercising. I did however live a healthy lifestyle for eight days… But, as always… I failed. I have to get back on track, and not allow little bumps to get me down.
Just now, I had an odd sensation in my chest. The left side, of course. I instantly thought I could possibly be having a heart attack. Unfrotunately I’m not feeling the greatest. My left arm started to go numb, and my whole body froze. I was getting ready to call for help, because I felt like I was going to pass out. I took a deep breath, and tried to convince myself I wasn’t having a heart attack. At least… I hope I’m not on the verge of having a heart attack. If I were, wouldn’t I be able to type? (That’s something I should look into.)
Thankfully my anxiety is back down, and I’m starting to feel tired. It’s 5am, and I haven’t slept yet. My son will be up in a couple hours, and I really need to focus on sleep. I plan to continue using this site again. I’ve missed Tumblr, and should use it when I’m having great days! Not just when I’m full of anxiety.
Life Update: January 2014
It’s been way too long since I’ve blogged, let alone been on Tumblr. It’s hard to believe how fast time flies… And, how scary days go by! Things have been very hectic for me. Still dealing with mental health issues, but getting better.
I’ve cut our Diet Pepsi (a very bad addiction of mine) but have noticed I’ve replaced it with ginger ale… I’m getting a lot of gas around my chest, and it’s making me panic. Today I experienced very off sensations… Nothing I’ve ever felt before. I thought I was on the verge of having a heart attack… (Even though deep down inside I knew it was gas.) Then, I found myself googling heart attack symptoms… Gah! It’s never a dull moment inside the head of an anxious person. It’s now been over an hour since I’ve had those sensations… And, so far I’m not dead… I guess I’m fine! ;)
All in all, I’m feeling better mentally than I did a few months ago. I just really have to focus on weight loss and healthy living. I neet to make a schedule and stick to it. I know I can do this!
