ON A SHORT BREAK

Hello everyone, I’ve been offline for a bit and might be for a little longer.

I’ve been through some difficult situations of late. Last week I experienced a panic attack for the second time this year. Most likely COVID triggered. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest and I couldn’t catch a breath. I hyperventilated as a result and got the shakes and dizziness. It wasn’t a great experience.

A few days, while my seven-year-old daughter and I were walking down a street, two burly men walking in the opposite direction loomed over me as they passed and racially abused me for being Asian. I had to explain to my distraught but angry daughter why random people would tell in my face “Take it home!” and what the phrase meant. I was shaken to my core from that experience.

On a positive note, my study units for the teaching course I’m doing is released today. So my learning as a mature aged student begins! Wish me luck folks cos I’ll need it!

I’ll be back soon with funny tales…

Keep safe everyone.

  1. So sorry you are having increased anxiety and panic attacks. COVID is doing that to everyone, but those of us predisposed to it are having a harder time! I hope you can find some strategies to manage it better. Take care of yourself!!

    1. Thanks Patrice. We are on the cusp of a second wave, possibly lockdown again, so it is uncertain times. Obviously, no where near the devastation COVID has caused in the U.S. I’m taking time off media and news. All the negative news doesn’t help.
      Hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.
