I am 25 years old and I am many things. I am a wife, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend...I am not yet a mother, but of a maternal persuasion.

I like a wide variety of things including but not limited to, fashion, video gaming, music (who doesn't like music), movie watching (my dvd/blu-ray library is ever expanding), and a plethora of other things.

I have a pug named Rufus and a giant fat cat named Oakley (my mom calls him spawn of Satan, which could be true).

Yesterday, I had an anxiety attack.  It started when I left job #1 and was on my way to job #2.  First there were the knots.  These were knots that I truly believe no seasoned sailor could ever undo.  I frequently have butterflies in my stomach, be it because of my husband or because I’m sincerely excited about what’s going to happen.  I wasn’t worried.  Then came all the other symptoms.  I was sweating profusely (something I barely do even when I push my hardest during a workout), various parts of my body were tense, I had a white knuckle grip on my steering wheel and my heart was just pounding.  My adrenal glands began working overtime causing me to become jittery.  I hadn’t had one this bad in years…

I’m one of those people who rolls with the punches.  The world could throw whatever they wanted to at me, and I would find a way to make it through optimistically and fairly unscathed, probably even in a better situation than before.  But yesterday, apparently threw me for a loop for which I thought I would be ready.  My mother-in-law was experiencing chest pain.  Okay.  Now, I’ve been expecting some sort of call like this.  She has a rapid, progressive form of dementia that is incurable and obviously terminal.  She’s not old. 53 years.  My own parents are only 51.  My great-grandmother died at age 92 of alzheimers.  This shouldn’t be happening in the first place, but it is.

So, chest pain.  Not only do I get this phone call, but I have to call my husband and ask him how he would wish to proceed should the EKG find anything truly wrong.  No problem.  I’ll have him call back in 5 minutes.  The entire experience lasted all of 15 minutes, because the EKG was fine.  No further action necessary.  Yay! Crisis averted.  The situation went smoothly and I was a rock!

Then comes my delayed reaction to the day and it takes most of my evening at job #2 to get it all out of my system.  Through concentrating on work, my friends/coworkers making me laugh, and silly dancing behind the counter (mostly to work off the leftover adrenaline), I got passed this, but I know it’s going to happen again because I know I’ll get another phone call.

How does everyone else deal with high-anxiety situations?
