I'm not sure if anyone can relate or if it's just me so bare with me.
So I haven't been feeling that great all week. This past Sunday came around and I felt like I was having shortness of breath. Along with the shortness of breath I have been getting headaches, feeling dizzy, and have had a serious case of insomnia.
Today rolls around and I'm doing laundry and I literally felt like I was struggling to breathe. It was painful. Finally I was just reduced to tears when Todd told me it was time to go to the doctor. I'm thinking something might seriously be wrong with me. Scary.
We get to the doctors office and shes checking my lungs and heartbeat and she says everything sounds great. Then she starts asking me questions on if I had been feeling stressed lately. I didn't really think I had but when Todd told her we have been planning a wedding she looked at me like she had just hit the bullseye. She was asking if I had the dizzy spell and headaches and shortness of breath and of course I told her I had and she told me point blank I was stressed out. On top of that I guess I have been stressed out about living so far from my family this year(Todd filled her in on that, last time he goes in with me) and she basically told me that even that I haven't realized I am stressed I fit all the symptoms. She said she also had another bride in there about a month ago fitting the same description. Long story short..Shes going to put me on some Xanex(sp?) She said it would help me sleep and wake up feeling refreshed and it would calm my nerves a bit.
Anybody else going through this at all? I feel like a freak. Honest to God I haven't really been too stressed about planning because my dad is doing most of it(yep I got the Dadzilla) my job is to tell him what I want and he makes it happen. I guess planning a wedding 2000 miles away along with the worrying about where we will live when we move back to Illinois, being homesick, thinking I actually might be really sick, etc was more than I thought. ARGHH, thanks for listening(reading) just needed to get it out. Am I crazy?
