The Symptoms

Day 13: If you know the criteria of your illness(es) which ones do you think you meet? Or what are your most common symptoms?

I have covered this in bits of pieces throughout the 12 previous days but will list my symptoms under the diagnoses.  These symptoms can overlap or be concentrated on one.

I am not sure I remembered all of them and will add to this if I think of something.


Hypervigilence, panic attacks, flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, depression, numbed emotions, overwrought guilt and sense of responsibility, disconnection between my mind and body, perfectionism, ruminating thoughts

Anxiety Disorder:

Panic attacks, anxiety, stress eating, ruminating thoughts, hyperventilation, breathlessness, excessive sweating, fast breathing,

Major Depressive Disorder:

Unable to leave my bedroom, feeling like I am trapped in my mind, struggling to speak, not feeling like eating, consider suicide, crying with no reason

Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia:  

Difficulty leaving the house, difficulty in large crowds, difficulty around anyone unless hubby is nearby, panic attacks, anxiety feeling



I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
