So I've been tagged in a few #sds
, from the gorgeous @boots.books.barbells
and that cutie @red_totc
. I'll take this opportunity to share something personal. The past few months at my job have been a nightmare, and I'm leaving in about 3 days. I've also started developing panic attacks, which, before today, I always dismissed to a degree as being slightly "high strung". I also chose this past week to go full blown keto again, and the keto flu pushed everything over the edge. This is the face of 14 hours of anxiety, 2 hours of solid panic, and 24 hours of no sleep. Sometimes, you have to draw a line in the sand, and my line was today I guess. One visit to urgent care later and I have a prescription for Xanax, 36 hours required rest and abstinence from work, and a warning to take it seriously, or end up in the ICU. My heart rate was between 83 and 130 for nearly 12 hours. We are all on here to improve our health, but mental health is just as important as physical health, and mental disorders can affect your physical body. Don't underestimate your symptoms. Today is a good day though, it's a day where I learned my limits, and I thank modern medicine for being able to provide. Anyone who has a fabulously cute selfie is welcome to participate!
