- Wedding: August 2014
A week and a half ago I signed our ceremony and reception contract, wrote the deposit and dropped them in the mail. This is the first concrete step we have taken towards planning our wedding.
A week and a half ago I also started having uncharacteristic anxiety and panic attacks. I’ve had 6 panic attacks in that timespan. I’m so sick of feeling anxious and unsettled. I don’t think that it’s related the the wedding planning because that’s been going pretty smoothly, I’m pretty sure it’s just a coincidence. I’m usually a very calm and logical person, as my FI says ‘I’m his rock’. It has greatly unsettled him to see me unable to sit still with anxiety. I went through an awful living situation last winter with abusive roommates and I handled it soooo much better than I’m coping right now in my awesome new situation with my FI. Because of the uncharacteristicness of this my mom thinks that it might be hormonal or chemical. I’m wondering if I’ve got a bad pack of birthcontrol. I’ve had a bad pack from this pharmacy before but it resulted in mirgraines not anxiety. I’ve been breaking out like crazy and I’ve got caker sores all over my tongue which is a new one.
I’ve been doing everything I can think of to calm myself down. Walking, swimming, relaxing in the hot tub, visited the humane society and pet a cat, not reading or watching anything too tense or dramatic, cuddling with FI, it works to distract me for a bit, but the moment I stop doing whatever it is the anxiety comes right back.
Has anyone else experienced anxiety related to birthcontrol before? Does anyone have any tips to calm me down?
I start a new pack of BC on friday, and if that doesn’t work I’m going to call my insurance to see what doctor I can go to.
