I know this may sound rather silly, but eversince i had a bad dose of flu in 2007, which resulted in a
blocked nose for nearly 5wks and endless sleepless nights, ive had a phobia.
I started with severe panic attacks in december 2010, which had increased throughout jan when i visited
my doctor whos put me on antidepressants and betablockers whilst im on the waiting list for therapy
to help me with this matter.
but ive just got a common cold which has resulted in a blocked nose and loss of taste/smell, and whilst
watching tv this evening, i had the most horendous panicy feelings, regarding this, it no doubt memories
of that flu, this occured in january when i had a cold, my panic attacks where that intense with this
phobia, i had the emmergancy doctor. Can someone help or advise me how to relax whilst ive got this
blocked nose and its phobic connections, i feel so scared, ive tried may distraction techniquies, but to no
avail, right now im totally alone in my feelings and fears. much appreciated any welcome advise debbie.
