Pepper, Sorry you have been going through all of this especially the anxiety attacks. I suffer from anxiety and it has gotten worse since surgery. I am glad you posted this because I usually don't like to talk about anxiety either because I am afraid of being judged. I have been told that trauma can trigger anxiety and you friend have had your share. I hope that your doctor is giving you a good anti anxiety med. I think I have mentioned before I take ativan. I was really miserable before that was prescribed. I felt this horrible fear and dread that I had made the worst mistake in the world by having surgery. Trust me that kind of thinking did me no good at all. Hopefully now with a change in meds and a better treatment of the pain you will be back to yourself in no time, and get some good sleep. Not sleeping can really mess with your head too. I am so glad you posted this, I have been thinking about you a lot lately and I miss not having you here. I do understand if you feel like you need to stay away for awhile. I took a little hiatus for awhile myself. You are in my thought and prayers. Dee
