Anxiety

I have been having these "episodes" lately where I feel like I am having trouble breathing. My chest feels heavy, my heart starts racing, and I feel as if I have a lump in my throat. My co-worker thinks that it's anxiety, and I sure am hoping that's all it is. I use to get anxiety when I was in high school, but the episodes were a lot different than this, more obvious. My episode this afternoon was so severe that I felt as if I might pass out. These episodes seem to occur when I am relaxed, which is very annoying. I noticed them start the night that I started back on my copaxone.

Speaking of my copaxone, I broke my little streak of taking my copaxone daily, last night. I was at my moms house when I got the reminder on my phone, and forgot by the time that I got home. I didn't remember until I was laying in bed (of course). I'm going to get right back at it tonight, though!

Something else that I didn't get to is the gym. After the stressful afternoon that I had, and the anxiety attack, I just wanted to go home and relax. Oh, wait... did I say relax? Yeah, as soon as I got home to relax, another episode began. I just tried sitting back and taking deep breaths. It seemed to help!

I leave for my business trip tomorrow morning, and I have a lot of packing to do tonight. I will definitely be using the gym in the hotel and WILL meet my goal of going to the gym 3 times this week!
