    Hi Lou, first thing take some breathes....did you smash the spider? If not either smash it or grab what you need from that room, close the door and lay on the couch. Your husband can handle the spider tomorrow. As for the studying put that off until the morning as well. Just focus on breathing and relaxing for now

      thank you yes, it brought up loads of stuff from the past and made me super super aware and alert and scared - got so much mental therapy to do , this is all because of surgical meno which makes things a million times worse - it's just awful, heart thumping so hard it's throbbing in my ears I can hear the blood flowing it's making me feel sick x

      Well when you make it through tonight...which you will. Maybe you might ask your doctor for something just to help you when you are having bad anxiety? I don't like to take them, but sometimes I feel like I am doing my body more harm by not taking something to alleviate the stress. You have us on here for support. Post as much as you need to. Maybe watch some videos on YouTube? There are lots of full tv episodes. I like hogans heroes😊
