Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Follow up -- stopped a panic attack in progress! :)
In a nutshell, (cause I already wrote a long enough post about the wake), I started shaking on my way to the funeral in Illinois in the car (first time I ever tried to drive there alone), and missed my exit. Hyperventilated some, but managed to get to the next exit, pull off and into a Mobil station.

Had the presence of mind to tell a patron of the station I was having a panic attack, and to get him to get me water (my cup had gotten trapped on the door handle)- and to get him to call someone.

Result? I managed to calm myself, breathe, wait for my cousin Howard, get back into the car and DRIVE to the church. :)

The rest of the day, (although really hard at times), was a piece of cake after that. ;)

Ready for some much needed rest.

Brenda

Y'see?

When you just STOP...

breathe ... ... ... (again)

Y'see?


When you just STOP...

I seem to always forget how to breathe when I'm actually panicking, so I'm thinking of writing it down on a card to have handy to tell me.

The way I fixed it and managed to calm my breathing was by sitting on the hood of my car and SINGING at the top of my lungs. "Sunshine.... on my shoulders.... makes me happy..." to my John Denver tape in the car.

I was so busy trying to sing I forgot to hyperventilate. ;) I am surprised the police didn't wonder about me though. ;)

New Thanks for the update....
These things have a way of working themselves out. Good luck at the church.
New I did fine at the church
I had actually already done the entire rest of the funeral before my follow up post. :) I coped better at the church than I thought I would, and even coped fairly well at the gravesite.

But this doesn't mean I plan on making funeral attendance a habit! ;)

P.S. My muscles are STILL sore from the fight flight response for almost 48 hours. But it's nice to know I can do it when I have to. :)

New Bravo!
(Er, to be quite linguistically-correct, that should be "Brava", I suppose. Same thing, only for girl owls, you see?)
