So, I had my first panic attack today! It was the weirdest feeling ever. I was in my Abnormal Psychology class listening to lecture and I was just beyond uncomfortable. I was nauseous. I was cold but I was hot to the touch. I think I had a slight fever but, can't actually confirm. As the class went on, I kept getting more restless. I couldn't stay still. I was exhausted and tired as well. I had nightmares last night (my version of nightmares lol... because it involved school and y'all would probably think I am a nerd if you heard it). So anyways, it was about 20 minutes before class was over and a video began to play. My body just started shaking really bad and I was fighting back the tears. All I could think was I just needed to cry on someone's shoulders. So, I left the room and went to find a professor, but none of my psych professor's were in their room, so I went to Dr. McGruder my criminal justice professor. She is one hell of a woman but not very sympathetic or empathetic so I wasn't sure if she would let me come in and just cry. Sure enough, she invited me in and asked me what was going on and I just started crying. She gave me a tissue and just talked me through it. She handled it very well, so I was very suprised but once the episode was over, I felt sooooooo much better! I was good for the rest of the day!
After my classes, I went to the Health Department to confirm pregnancy and get health insurance. So, I am now insured and signed up for programs to help first time moms. Everyone asked me if I was excited about being pregnant, and let me tell you, I couldn't contain my excitement. Once I get my health insurance card in the mail, I can make my first appointment with a doctor. That means I can get my first ultra sound!!!!! How cool and exciting is that?
