Life Lately

Posted on: September 14th, 2016, in Life.

I know I had a pretty long absence from my blog, but trust me I had reason. Since the last time I blogged I’ve been constantly sick. It was awful.

First it started with my cold, which made me stay in bed for almost a week. I was supposed to be studying, but I couldn’t. After that, I had a panic attack. It was my first one. I never felt something this awful in my entire life. When it happened I was in the subway, then I had to take the bus. I was all alone in he middle of the street and I was terrified. I managed to get home, after going to a pharmacy where they gave me calcium with magnesium and zinc. After that I went to see two psychiatrists and the second one game me some anxiolytic medicine. I started feeling better after 2-3 days, but I still had the sensation that I can’t do anything anymore and I had a constant fear of everything. Day by day these feelings went away. I am a lot better now. Long live drugs. After this I had a cold again. My throat hurt so bad that I couldn’t talk. I started taking antibiotics again(different kind that the first ones). At this moment I am way better. My cold is almost gone, my anxiety is under control. My confidence in myself came back and I feel again that I can anything. I am so happy that my problems went away. These past two weeks were awful, and I lost a lot of time. Now I have three exams next week and I have no idea how I am going to get high grades, because I just couldn’t study. I will try my best, but I am the kind of person that thinks you get what you work for. So since my effort is almost zero I am not so sure that I will succeed. At least I am going to try.

What this past weeks taught me, especially the panic attack, was to take better care of myself. Apparently no matter if I am young, I am not invincible. So I slept more, I tried to relax and take it easy, I tried to eat healthier and take some time for myself. It’s really important now to be as careful as I can, because my health is the most important thing.

Now I am going to focus on my exams. I have a week to save my school situation. Maybe I will succeed, maybe I will not, but I am going to try. I am not giving up yet. As for the website, I have a to do list of updates, and I can’t wait to start working on them. I miss doing graphics and updates for this website, but now I have other priorities.

I hope you are OK. I miss visiting your websites, but I am not gone forever. I will be back at the end of next week and then I can admire your amazing work. Take care of you and talk to you soon.

That’s how I’ve been recently, just with the anxiety and depression . It sucks, but I am glad that you’re back on your feet again. Being physically sick on top of anxiety and panic attacks does suck. I remember having my first panic attack, but the point is, it’s okay. You deserve rest. Take care :D

I’m so sorry to hear about your panic attack and the cold you’ve had to face. So far, I have yet to be sick with any kind of cold except allergies. This might be due to a wonderful drug, which you can purchase over the counter (not sure if it’s sold in your country), but it is called Emergen-C. Every time I feel my throat starting to itch or feel sore, I take one. It has a LOT of vitamin C and zinc in the powder itself. Yes, it’s powder form and you take it with water. But Emergen-c does wonders. Try some next time. Or that other one the one that was shown on a plane? I can’t remember air-born! I think it’s called. Anything with vitamin c is good for a cold, especially if you feel one coming on.

I’m glad you’re back on your feet again and can be you again. Try to do your best with your exams. I’ve missed two of my Anthropology classes this week due to allergies. I have emailed my professor about my upcoming project, which I hope he approves. Please take care of yourself.
