Recently, I have been away from home. On the bright side, I do not have to cook or worry about chores around the house. On the other hand, I have people around me who want to do things when all I want to do is relax.

Yesterday, I had a meltdown in the middle if a major city. All I wanted was to be at home with my cat sitting on the couch and watching a movie. That did not happen. I was ready to call 911. Things around me were just spinning and I was getting tunnel vision. I wanted to run, yet there was nowhere to escape too. 

It was supposed to be my wedding anniversary. I was supposed to be enjoying our time together. Instead panic and anxiety took over. Luckily, I have a patient husband and he waited it out. He put up with my meltdown right out in the middle of the town. 

When I get back, there will be bills and getting ready for my class. At least that is normal everyday stuff. Most of it I can even do from my phone or computer!! At least I will be able to see my therapist and finally meet my new psychiatrist.

  1. I also suffer from hypersensitivity. It can be really difficult to deal with, especially when you’re tired. I work as a teaching assistant in a nursery, so it really be draining at time. I sometimes have to leave the room for a few minutes just to make sure I stay in control.

    On another note I hope that your therapist and psychiatrist meetings go well! Would you say that being hypersensitive is your main issue? If you don’t mind me asking of course.
