Panic attack


I was feeling wierd yesterday. Blink I couldn't figure out what it was. Thought it was my medicine cause after I took all of them it when it first hit me.

Sick I took a nap after grand doggy left and I felt better so I decided I needed to go get a bit of groceries for hubbys lunch the next day. Got up to the train tracks and there was a train sitting there. I was about car #10 in line so I figured it would be moving soon. Whistling I had looked in my rear view mirror and there sat a Sheriff car. Ermm That didn't bother me. People started making U turns in front of me and going back the way they came. It was 1/2 hr later that everything started to move. It's the GM loading station and they are only to tie up traffic for no more than 15 minutes. One train was moving real slow, one train was just sitting there and good lord there came another train going in the opposite direction really fast. That's when the panic attack hit. I didn't know what to do and I don't know what triggered it. If I still smoked, I swear I would have ripped the bottom off the pack of cigarettes and smoked them all at once. What's bad about it was the fact that when the last car of the fast moving train went by, there sat another train not moving but blocking the road. Angry This was now an hour after we all got to the crossing. The cop got mad, turned on his lights got out of his car and actually walked up the tracks beside the stopped train until he found someone from CSX. They moved the remaining train off the track and we finally got moving.

Then I got home and got the mail. Yay!!! a letter from Allsup. Went inside and read it. GOOD NEWS! they said. The ODAR received my case and is awaiting action by the administrative law judge. The hearing level takes an estimated 8 to 18 months but in some instances it takes 24 months or longer to schedule a hearing. What a bummer. Shocked Sad

By the time I get a hearing, I will be eligible close to early retirement age.

So I ate some M&M's and went to my happy place. Music turned up loud as I could singing at the top of my lungs.

Bless your heart... seems like a really annoying day but maybe there will be a light at the end of the tunnel. My best thoughts go out to you that the hearing will be expedited and you win.

I hope you are having a better rest of your weekend. I've recently been having some panic attacks so I know how bothersome they can be (I've been getting them when the rls sensations all over my body are really bad. I had one last week when I was there for my sleep study. Scary stuff when they come!)

I wish I had chocolate in my house! Last night I actually took out a pouch of cookie mix and made a batch. I was sooooo bad...I think I ate 8 of them!!!!!! But boy were they good!

I think I'm going to give the other pouch of cookie mix to the local food bank! Silly

Hi Jan,

So sorry to hear about your panic attacks.

They sure are not fun. I can hardly leave the house anymore.

Glad your paperwork made it to the ALJ office. Hope the wait isn't to long for you. I can't even remember when I got that letter. It seems like so long ago and I'm still waiting.

I need to find my happy place!
