Freaking themselves out on a regular basis.

I was walking today and was trying to go at a decent (for me) pace. I realized I was breathing hard. Immediately started to worry. Had to remind myself that you are supposed to breathe heavy while exercising. I actually had a mental conversation and called myself some not so nice words. And the whole path was covered in pollen.

I am highly allergic to pollen AND I have asthma, so sneezing and wheezing is a familiar thing to me. I donīt get too freaked out because itīs every fall and spring.

Freaking out

Yes to freaking out and yes to breathing. Itís the pollen, dry air, and anxiety.

My therapist said we are all experiencing anxiety because we donít know what to do, we canít control whatís happening, and there is no direction coming from the person who should be directing things, or at least comforting the nation.

I have my windows open to air out the house. Spring allergies. Everytime I sneeze I panic even though I know it's the pollen.

I havenít been worried about Covid-like symptoms necessarily...but every time my stomach cramps up, or my kid climbs too high in a tree, or my Dh has heartburn, I mentally start freaking out that we will need to go to the emergency room and how scary that might be.

Like my friend KatieViolet, I’m super careful with knives and driving because I just can’t imagine how to deal with an accident in today’s world.

I also take my temperature daily. Ridiculous, but I keep doing it.

I totally get the careful thing. I burnt my arm and should have gone to urgent care but just couldnít bring myself to go. I couldnít bring myself to go to the doctors either.

I had the windows open and worked outside yesterday, well I was sneezing this am because of it. I had to talk myself down all morning. A teacher at my school cut her finger pretty badly, she tried to stop the bleeding for over an hour before she broke down and went to the ER. We have no emergent care centers and her dr. couldn't get her in. She came away with a tetanus shot and stitches. She did say she was in and out with no waiting. My dd works as an EMT at the hospital she said they have had no calls everyone is trying not to go in, thank goodness.

My son and I say we are all suffering a little "hypochondria" these days. Every little ache and cough gets me thinking. And you're right about accidents. We've been doing home projects. My DH even using a chainsaw cutting down trees! And I do worry if anything happened...

I am suffering from anxiety. I am the sole caregiver for my mother who is 75 years old. We had to go to the emergency room last week because she had a kidney stone attack. They separated us at the door and unfortunately the ER staff did not take care of her adequately. She signed out AMA and we are riding it out at home with her doctorís supervision. She is so tired and I am having to mentally talk myself down every day.
