I don't have health insurance, which means going to the OR is very expensive, and I can only go when I have an attack that won't stop. I know I sound like an attention-seeking drama whore (this post=case in point), but talking to other people about it helps in two ways. One, I realize I could be worse off. And two, it keeps my mind clearer, and I don't go off into 'OMGPANIC!' mode.
I'm leaving this post public for IDK how long, so you can understand why I sometimes completely freak out about some tightness in my chest. Why a rising heart rate for me is cause for a freakout. Why I complain about my body and why I act all paranoid.
This is why.
