Hey Larane, August 5th isn't too far away. I will keep you in my prayers.
Oh yes, the mini panic attacks, yes, I've experienced a few of them along the way, particularly when I was in my hard cast, which was very, very difficult for me. N
ow that I'm in a soft cast, which is removable and makes all the difference I'm doing much better, although the immobility can get me sometimes abit, but not like befoer.
I didn't see you post on the discussion site, but, I'm sure you got great feedback. I know for me, I actually saw my family doctor about it, then also a counselor, who helped me alot with the anxiety/panic. I hope all of it is going better for you. I had many things that I did for it, but, one of the most comforting things I started to do, was get in touch with my spirituality more often, read passages from the bible, which are of a great comfort to me. Remember, they are only temporary things, and, you have good reason to feel anxious, and it will pass. Acknowledging that it is only temporayr is especially helpful.
Sandals you aren't ready for yet, I guess. Sneakers and orthotics seem to be standard fare for most of us here! I still can't fit any shoe on my injured side, and, I'm wondering when I will. I start PT tomorrow, which I'm looking forward to, but also a bit nervous about. But, mostly looking forward to it. I'll let you know how I do. Take care Larane, Donna G
