Ok, that makes sense. Of course, one of the big things with hypos I think is that we constantly think the doctor missed something or just isn't taking us seriously because of our age, cholesterol, family history etc: ) Where other people say, why me? I say why NOT me? But no matter how many times I tell a doctor that I wake up gasping for air, that I feel like there's fluid in my lungs, that I have such and such pain….they all tell me anxiety: ) Of course, it doesn't help that I've read countless stories of people who have had heart attacks and their doctors dismissed their symptoms for months until they nearly died….oy vey.
Ok, so maybe I don't give enough credit to doctors: ) I am always much too focused on the very slight chance that I will be one of the people who gets "missed" by the doctors rather than the thousands of other people who are diagnosed correctly (whether with anxiety or an actual physical disease). I want to be free of this so badly, but part of me hangs on because I (mistakenly) believe that if I am constantly vigilant, I won't be taken by surprise by something. That I will survive. It's a sh*tty way to live. In fact, I'm about to try to make a big move across the country and started feeling like I was going to die before it happened. Anxious brain says this is a premonition. Rational brain says it's my anxiety trying to ruin things again: )Thanks for your kind words.
