    i finally got diagnosis with panic disorder. i always knew i had anxiety and it was always much worse then any of my other mental illnesses and now i understand why. all of my illnesses lead back to my panic disorder no one until today told me i had it. i always kind of knew it had to be something more intense then anxiety because the way i was living and having panic attacks at random times doesnt really fit anxiety… most of the time they know why they are having an anxiety attack… i could be sitting in class and my heart starts racing and everything stops around i cant move or breath or talk and i am stuck.. and i have no idea what caused it. and i have always been so mad at myself for going into random panic attacks but now i dont have to blame myself… because it isnt my fault i guess…
    also i sent in my application for my hamster to be my emotional support animal and im really nervous they arent going to accept it… they should because i have all the information but i dont know if they will and im scared, nervous and upset
    and tommrow i am getting my third tattoo and it is going to hurt sooo bad im getting it on my ribs and it is going to way Warrior and the i is a semicolon and under it is a wave i maybe will figure out how to post a picture of it if not ill link my ista next week for those who want to see it. my tattoos tell my story. i have one on my wrist that says strength and on the other wrist it says hope with a butterfly with different colors representing my different mental illnesses if possible i will post those too.. talk to you all next week if not soon thanks for your help every week

    Hey Kelly,

    Getting your diagnosis can be an emotional experience but I’m glad that it was helpful and enlightening for you. I’m glad that things are making sense for you now and that you know what steps to take in the future when your panic attacks occur, that’s so great to hear. It’s def not your fault, so try not to think of it like that.

    Im hoping you get your hamster, fingers are def crossed. If not, maybe there are some alternatives that we can look into. The way that you’re feeling is completely normal, so just take a deep breath and hope for the best. If all else fails, it’s on to the next plan of action. Have you looked up any other types of support… or what about getting some fish instead? Good luck with your tat! Follow TPCT on insta so that we can see it… Our insta name is TurningPointCT_org ! We’ll def follow you back.

    Dont put too much pressure on yourself Kelly. You are doing well. Its really good that you are getting out there and doing the things that make you happy. If your hamster doesn’t work out now (hopefully it will) there are surely other things that can help you to feel better.
    And its just heartwarming that you are so open about your diagnosis, I’m sure that there are other people reading this and saying to themselves, “This is exactly how I feel.”
    Stay well!

    diagnosis are important because by knowing what you are diagnosed with can help you do some research about what you really have and you could agree or disagree if those symtoms are the ones you are experiencing

    I get very anxious sometimes, an emotional support animal is a smart idea. I hope everything works out.
