Love–Don’t Panic


If we were having coffee, it would have to be later in the day this weekend. I’m tired. Exhausted, really.


Sometimes I can plan and prepare for this type of physical and emotion attacking week, but this one I felt I was totally prepared for.


WHAM!


I wouldn’t say anything bad happened, but when you hit survival mode by 8:15 on Monday morning, well, it gives you an inkling of what’s coming.


So, I did what all overwhelmed, panic attack looming, over-time employed, mothers of teenagers do when they find themselves hanging on by a thread.


I drank more coffee, ate more sugar, got up earlier, stayed up later, and made sure to spend a bit of time doing things for me. I left work when everything wasn’t quite finished. I read a book that I have a book review coming due on. I went and watched a movie. I had dinner.



Yeah. I’m a party animal!


At one point during the week I could feel the panic attack coming on. My breathing pattern was changing. My eyes were expanding in my head. My thoughts were racing.


This is new for me. Recognizing the symptoms before they get too far.


So, I shot my hubby a quick e-mail at the break.


I‚Äôm feeling a little overwhelmed today. Tears…panic attack pending‚Ķ


And in less than two minutes I got an e-mail back.


That stinks! I love you anyways ūüėČ


Um, who wouldn’t stop and smile at that reply?


Take a deep breath. Assess the situation. Nothing terrible is happening today. What do you need to do right now? One thing. Not everything. Do that.


Yes, I still went home exhausted. Wore out. Feeling emotionally wiped out. But with one quick e-mail response, the full-blown panic attack was averted.


What do you do when you get overwhelmed? Can you recognize the symptoms of impending meltdown?


Do you need someone to strategize with you? Talk you down? Or just remind you that you are loved?


Do you have to withdraw from everyone even if that means leaving work or your own family immediately?

I’d love to hear what others do. I will need to find some other strategies as my husband will soon be released to return to work and won’t be able to respond to me immediately for much longer.

Let’s Go to the Hop! The Valentine’s Day Hop!
