... having massive panic attacks. I have strep throat and was prescribed antibiotics and cannot make myself take them. I am sick just thinking about it and so disappointed in myself for not being able to just do what I need to do to get better. I know step can have serious complications if not treated properly, but I also know it can go away on its own. So here I am, sick as a dog, really hating myself for all this anxiety mess and not being able to just take the pills.
