please help



Tomorrow I will have light sedation for a my SI Joint Injection procedure. The 15th I am being put to sleep for surgery to get a Hickman Catheter. I take a lot of sedating medication for my anxiety and now my autonomic instability. I am not going to wake up! I am going to stop breathing! Something! I am so scared!

Please help me. I haven't seen a Therapist yet. My appointments with her keep getting cancelled for things like this. I am seriously going to die!

I've had 3 epidural steroid shots. I am getting an SI injection soon and sometime after that I have surgery for placement of a central line. I'm scared out of my mind! I have Physical Therapy 2x weekly too and I am not even used to leaving the house! I am so overwhelmed! I had a dx of with Autonomic Instability this week due to my Post Concussive Syndrome. I can't deal with this. I don't know how people deal with this.

I'm raising my Cymbalta. Lowering my Diazepam and Risperidal. This whole week is a mess!

Anxiety/Depression & Bravery

Depression



One lesson I've learned is that people dealing with Depression and Anxiety are some of the strongest people in the world! No one in my family has ever dealt with anything like this until my head injury. After my head injury I was scared of everything! I didn't understand why I felt that way. My parents had to get guardianship over me just to get me in the hospital. The Neurologist said I had brain damage from my fall. I have Epilepsy, Migraines, Depression, Severe Anxiety, Phobias, etc.

It took a court order to get me the help I needed. My parents still have guardianship over me so that I can't backout of my appointments out of fear. Yet other people ask for help, are willing to go to appointments, make appointments themselves and go to them on their own. I commend them for their bravery in dealing with conditions that are not easy to face.
