This is going to sound weird, I'm just not used to having people be nice to me.
My family was never nice to me. I don't talk to them at all.
None of them are coming to the wedding.

My (future) Sil's are being so nice. You'd think the wedding was for one of their daughters. I'm not used to being the center of attention.

I get panic / anxiety attacks.
My heart just starts to pound, I get migraines.
I'm so nervous I'll get them these next 2 weeks.
(wedding is nov 6th)

I've had 2 migraines this last week.
For me, its going to be so sad, walking down an aisle alone.
I'm stressing so much right now, its not funny.
Stress brings these attacks on.

I just want to stay in bed and cry.

I am sorry you feel alone but try to remember one thing: you are getting married! And one thing Weddings are stressful for all brides and I think all new brides have had panic attacks at one time or another so even though you may get them regularly-it won't seem unusual for anyone else who is helping you with the wedding.

And be happy that you are going be part of a new family that will accept you and do want you as a daughter and/or sister. That itself is very unusual and that should make you feel very special.

So if you feel sad or feel a panic attack coming on try to remember that okay. Hopefully one day your own family will come through as well. (((((HUGS))))) AND Happy Wedding to you!

I feel for you, I didn't have a wedding b/c of exactly that. Although I have a wonderful family, I just don't deal with stress and anxiety real well. And that is no way to begin a marriage. So dh and I went another route.

Heck it was stressful just being in my sister's wedding, that was enough for me.

But congrats!!! And have a wonderful time!!
