I haven’t had one in a long while but Saturday I had a small panic attack. I don’t know why.
I work in retail and I’m around people all the time.
ALL. THE. TIME.
There’s never really a quiet moment. I go through the day interacting with people all day long. Then home to the family which isn’t as intense of course, but still, interaction with people.
And that’s all I can attribute the anxiety to.
I try to stay cool about everything. I don’t show the stress that this causes me. I have ways of dealing with my stress. You’re reading one of them. This is my “talk it out” kind of thing.
Today was a short day. I woke up way early this morning. 4:00 AM. I made coffee and sat in my chair, ate me breakfast, read my Bible then went into work.
Because I woke up at 4:00 I was wiped out this afternoon around 2:00 so I took a nap. Just me and the cats.
I didn’t experience any anxiety today, at all. But the body and mind turn on you and I had a very intense dream about running off the road and flipping my car into a lake.
I made myself wake up from the dream. I knew it was a dream.
My dreams are even trying to cause me anxiety.
You can’t win.
