For the Record

It was a panic attack.

The meeting with Dr. G set off a whole string of reactions. I recovered fairly quickly, after two days, but still, there it was.

The worst part of it was hearing that I would be at a greater risk of having a repeat of what happened before. Still a small risk, but not as small as you would think, up to 10%. I'm just not ready to deal with that yet. I get nervous just thinking about it.

I didn't get to respond to your first post, but it sure sounded like a panic attack to me (& no wonder, with all you were dealing with...!!). Best to get these things checked out, though -- the first time I had a panic attack, I was convinced it was a heart attack. My dr humoured me & sent me for a whole battery of tests that clearly proved it was not. I do have a very mild heart murmur, so I thought it was wise to err on the side of caution. ; ) Be good to yourself!

I'm sorry for the trigger and the risk you face with knowing it can happen again. I hope that the day you had was just an exceptionally difficult one (sure sounded like it) and that things will be better for future appointments. Hugs.

I think I owe you an email too. Sorry I've been slacking. (;

So sorry. That would be a really scary prospect. Peace to you!
