This is an interesting story.

Want to be entertained? Perhaps a little bit frightened? Okay.

So yesterday I had an anxiety attack. It was a very very weird feeling. I was standing there when all the sudden I felt like my throat was closing up! I literally felt like a fish out of water, I was gasping for breath. Headache, dizziness, and nausea ensued and I went to the hospital to be chauffered to the Doctor and didn't go to work. I suppose the good news was that I didn't have to go to work, but I did miss out on 90 bucks.

Hm...I just wrote that in a very boring way. I really am trying to not feel like a freak when I talk about Panic Attack. Who actually has those? It's not even like I'm some weirdo, uptight person....right?
Hm. So now I'm trying not to worry about having another one (succeeding pretty well) because sometimes freaking out about having another one can trigger it blah blah blah.

I love that as soon as it started happening, I knew what it was. I guess I did learn something at school last year.
