Ok so my last blog detailed some stomach and digestive issues I've been dealing with. It's been off and on for more than a year now. I also have low iron and B12, insulin resistance from the PCOS, and anxiety.
Someone did comment last time that anxiety or stress could be contributing to my problems. Well I'm wondering now if it's all from the anxiety. I actually do have generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and now that I think about it, over the past year or so, especially the last couple months, I have been having more panic attacks. I've made an appointment with my GP but I don't know what he's going to do about it. I really don't want to take any drugs, and I've just now started seeing a therapist. I don't think I'll be able to afford to go for very long, but I'm going to do whatever I can in the time I have.
I saw a nutritionist yesterday, a follow up to get a meal and supplement plan designed to help my stomach issues. I had a mild panic attack after I left because it's just one more thing for me to try to help my stomach that's going to fail. I hadn't even started yet so how can I know it won't work? I haven't been sleeping well at all, and half the time when I do I have nightmares. The nutritionist did give me some supplements to help with the anxiety too so hopefully everything will work out, and start to improve soon.
