    Today has been another hard day for me. I just left work early because my body was shaking so bad I could barely walk or hold on to anything let alone help customers. I pulled over to collect myself on my drive home because my mind was racing and I felt my body was going to just give up on me. I thought for sure I wasn’t going to make it home. My heart was pounding, my legs were shaking on the gas peddle. I was sweating and i had awful pressure in my head from blood pressure going up im sure. I didnt take my medicine today because im afraid to take it. I usually take it when im around friends or family because if something happens I will be able to get help right away. I know I shouldnt take my med’s when I am "okay" to take them, its just i have had such bad reactions. For example when I was going to the dr at first they gave me lexapro because they diagnosed me with generalized anxiety disorder with panic attacks. I had a seizure from that. I was put on inderal (propanolol) when lexapro didnt work and got jaundice from that. I was put on labatelol and it speed my heart rate up and lopressor made me pass out every time i took it. I no longer can take beta blockers so we are hoping the PTU was gonna bring the heart rate/palpitations down sooner than later. So I know have extreme anxiety with taking meds, every time I go to take the PTU I think im going to have a seizure or pass out and im going to be alone and have no one to call 911 for me. I always have my phone open and 911 put in so all i have to do is send talk and i know help is on the way. One day EMT was at my house 3 times. They have ran runs on me so many times they know who I am as soon as they hear my age and complaint. I have finally found a great PCP and a great Endo I am just having prblms trusting the medicine. I google everything my body does or feels and find out the worst on the internet. I go to bed thinking im not waking up and ill cry myself to sleep sometimes or go and watch tv till my body just falls asleep because when im awake i know im alive. I know it sounds weird but i think im geting the emotional liablitly the most from this disease. Well Im gonna go try to convince myself to take my medicine.LOL!
