I was sitting in the shower last night with my husband. He was giving me a hug while I was crying as the last couple of days of anxiety got the better of me.
I started babbling on about how unfair it was, what have I done to deserve this? Is it going to come back and I'll be stuck with this forever? Why is this happening? But I got over my last episode in a day, why has it stayed around for 3 days? Ill never be able to have a baby if I'm like this. And so on...
So, my partner calmed me as he always does when I go through this and said these words:
You have an illness, you will go through this from time to time.
It will pass, remember you had 2 weeks of feeling well, you had a day setback and then you were fine for a month. You're fighting this and you're stronger than you think.
Its all anxiety that's feeding this.
I know this has taken a bit longer this time round but think of it as a cold, they are never the same, and anxiety is like this. It may take a bit longer to get over it this time.
Immediately I felt better and ate dinner with no problem. I have some heart pulpitations today but its not bad. I will remember his words and the support that you have all given me when I have those bad days, well... bad week this time round ??
I will get better again.
