So, I was cruising along last night and I suddenly had a mild anxiety attack, then awhile later the Hypokalemia hit again but, only mildly. However my emotions went into overload immediately!
My super friends, Lilyannepuppy & Dolphin14 + my best friend, Krn210 sat up with me from 5:30am to 9:30am and helped me get through it.
As I began to slowly come out of it, I realized I was looking at the whole thing in error....I try so hard to not feel bad, to not give in when I do, that I probably only make it worse!
I realized that it's okay to feel bad, to let myself experience the super bad feelings and to be kind to myself while I do. I can ride out the storm, find the rainbow on the other side and be safe once more.
Lilyannepuppy pretty much said that but, I wasn't hearing it. I was too busy struggling! From now on, I won't feel ashamed when I have one of those attacks, I will start going into my recovery procedures right away, get help from my friends and then emerge safely out the other side of the storm.
If you're out there today and you're not feeling good, treat yourself nice, reach out to someone for help and do whatever you need to in order to recover. I'll meet you in the bright sunshine on the far side of the storm!
