Over the past few months, I’ve been sharing some of Erin Gilmer’s work from her blog.
Just so I have a few posts ahead of time in the summer months in case I get that transplant call.
But I would have ended up sharing this one at some point regardless. Because it’s an important subject to discuss.
As someone who has had panic attacks from medical & other situations from time to time, I might have at least found this particular option & suggestion in her post useful to consider or have to adapt on my own for when I was feeling massively overwhelmed.
Hell, I still might at some point if I need it.
I’m passing it along just in case it resonates with someone else too.
Actually, I almost tempted but serious when I say this want to pass out “roid rage” cards for after I take prednisone (when I have to) because that drug just triggers my bad side on a whole new level. I’m not using it at as an excuse when I say it’s hard to control & manage the mood & temper changes it invokes.
Any transplant or lung disease patient I’m sure will also back me up on this.
