So, over the last week or so since my big scare, I've been pretty unfocused--and thus, unbalanced. It's not that I haven't had plenty to do for class or work; I just haven't been able to focus on it. I was feeling very scared and anxious.
The spotting that followed the big bleed has been gone for about four days, and I finally feel like I can breathe deep breaths again. That also means I finally feel like I can think about something other than horrifying possibilities again. In this case, that means papers!
Even when I was at the height of my anxiety, I was still functioning at work and in class, just not as well as I'd like. I'm confident that next week will be better.
