Today has not been a good day. i was in a Zoom meeting all day. I’m a teacher and I’m on a committee to launch Google Classroom for our district. After lunch, without any warning We were dived by our grade levels and told we had to make a presentation to give to the rest of the district in a couple weeks. it Just seemed to go downhill from there. While talking to my husband on the phone about a family issue, he starts telling me not to get anxious and to calm down. At that point I went into a full fledged panic attack. i became lightheaded and thought I was going to pass out. I could not catch my breath. I finally did settle down, but I feel out of sorts and still feel like I’m trying to breathe correctly.

it is so hard when you don’t have that support. I know it’s hard on him when I panic because he is 8 hours away. I have my best friend around, but so much you can do or say through text message. sometimes she doesn’t know what to say and I feel like I’m leaning on her too much. That is why I like this group. I can look through all the different post and think, “Yes, that happens to me, too!”

I am sorry you had a panic attack. It must have been so scary for you.

Honestly, I think being to write about it calmed my down. It did take a couple hours before I actually felt some sort of relief. Do you have any techniques to help you?

I've been trying a new technique... having fun with my family. Weird right. They always seem to help calm me down.
