10 Days and queue the anxiety attack

I have been a bit emotional today. In less than two weeks we will be Mrs. and Mrs. I am beyond thrilled and have been maintaining the to do list, even if not everything got done this weekend like I wanted. FW called to let me know we're having Mexican for dinner and I don't have to worry about cooking. (Bless her for this!) While we were chatting I mentioned one little thing that needed to get done in the next couple of days and instantly got sweaty and had a hard time breathing, I was having an anxiety attack at the office. I'm in tears just thinking about it! She talked me through but I am feeling really fragile all of a sudden. Things really are coming together but out of nowhere I felt myself spiraling. I hate this feeling!

    *hugs* I'm right there with you and with the same emotions. It's nice that our future spouses know how to help us, right? Like when things are going Ok you don't expect to feel like crap about it or anxious.

    Exactly! There are plenty of things to do but I am not in a position that things won't be done before the big day and yet I'm losing it in my office?!?! I am so grateful to her and happy to hear you have the same kind of support. I'm just going to keep breathing and we are going to get through this with amazing memories! Thank you for the hugs, sending some for you too.

    It's soo good that everything is coming together!! I think especially during this time zeroing in on everything is a given. Just today I woke up with a nightmare that it was almost go time and I was focused trying to dust off these end tables vs. get ready to get married lol

    I'm 11 days out and I started having panic attacks out of nowhere about a week ago. Same thing I felt like I couldn't breathe, everything went numb. Horrible! I had panic attacks when I was younger, they'd send me to the ER, but I got them under control. Now I feel like I'm back to where I started trying to get them under control again! I had a few attacks in the office as well. I broke down and told my coworker what was going on and she kept asking if I was ok lol. I just said if I'm hyperventilating back there you know why lol.

    I hope you feel better. Anxiety is awful. Smiley heart

    My breather is supposed to be a weekend in the woods this weekend. It's the planning for both events that has me a bit freaked. But I really need to get away!!!

    Haha It's crazy the way our brains work as we plan. I've had similar dreams. Maybe our subconscious is trying to tell us we need to not focus on the details more than the fact that we are getting married to wonderful people.

    The brain is a funny thing. Something we should be doing nothing but getting excited about is something that causes all this stress and anxiety. I'm sorry you're going through it too. It does seem to help to have people around that understand. I hope it eases up soon for you. We're almost there!!!
