panic attacks

I didn't wear the soft collar last night, and in the morning when I thought about putting it back on, I felt extremely, irrationally afraid, and started crying. So I didn't wear it today.

Nevertheless, I ended up having a panic attack while walking to Lisa's house. She was very patient and kind, and I eventually calmed down after about half an hour, but it wasn't pleasant. It wasn't as bad as last night, given that I didn't feel like I was being smothered and that I was going to die, but it still sucked.

So I'm once again not putting the collar again tonight. I'll see how I feel tomorrow.

You were so clear about how the panic attacks are worse than the headaches. Why not decide not to wear the soft collar at all, and then leave room to change your mind later, but protect yourself from panic attacks in the meantime?

Also, drug addiction is very rare when taking painkillers for pain.

Also, call me if you are alone and want post-panic-attack (or during-panic-attack0 company.
