Anxiety & Panic Attacks

My bipolar life and all the hell that goes along with it
I’m not as active in the gun blogger world any more. My blog is a hobby and plenty of people were able to  turn theirs into careers, and from that, plenty of great gun-related websites sprung forth. There’s still a need for blogs, especially those of us who don’t run any ads, to provide information, but as I’ve moved forward in my career, the time necessary to write well informed pieces started becoming harder & harder to find. So, when I found out this morning that Bob Owens of...

I have a small beef with many of my fellow gun rights supporters, namely the seemingly kneejerk reaction to point to the fact that all the recent mass shooters were on some sort of SSRI medication. Of course they were, they were bugnuts crazy before the meds, that’s why they put them on it - to try to control it. But the way many people speak of things like Paxil, Zoloft, and Lexapro, you’d think that Little Johnny Killemall was a perfect choir boy who was just a little depressed and because he...

I’m not watching 24 this season. I’m under doctor’s orders to relax, and since each show is like watching a train wreck multiple times, it’s something I think I should avoid. Yes, the show is campy and far fetched, but it was very entertaining and kept me at the edge of my seat. However, the last thing I need in my life right now is a thrill ride of a show to suck up even more of the limited time I have in the day. And I’m bummed about it. I guess I need to stick...

Last Thursday night I had a pretty horrible series of attacks which carried over into the morning. Missed work, again, but telecommuted the best I could (not everything works across our VPN). Really starting to fear for my job like I did the last time I had to go through this. My boss is pretty understanding, but she’ll soon be under pressure about my missed time and I’m completely out of Sick time anyway. Last night I had some mild attacks while I was getting to sleep. I woke this...
