Welcome to my what seems like a regular Sunday post. Firstly I’m delighted it’s March, the last two months have seemed so long, we have been bombarded by storms and general doom and gloom – viruses, floods, you name it the world has it.
For me it was a strange week. Mostly good but some bad. A couple of things gave me a bit of a wobble and my insomnia was back with a bang. I think this resulted in me having a panic attack in my sleep on Thursday night. I didn’t even know it was possible to have a panic attack in your sleep but apparently it is! I was quite proud of myself though and how I dealt with it, I managed to calm myself down. I just told myself ‘look it’s a panic attack, you’ve been here before and you’re not going to die.’ It did kind of floor me a bit though because I haven’t had an attack for such a long time. It’s like I think I have all this stuff cracked and my body goes oh no you haven’t.
So Friday night I was like the walking dead. I went for a Reiki treatment with the fabulous Tanya and that settled me a bit. I met some friends to discuss a project – I have to say I love this group, I can’t totally be myself with them and that’s quite a rare thing for me. After that I went home to bed, I couldn’t keep my eyes open. When I woke up all I wanted was a bag of chips – a throw back from the months of insomnia. Whenever I can’t sleep I crave carbs which is all well and good but I’m trying to eat healthier things, I did give in and have some chips – I’m not going to beat myself up about it.
The weekend has been spent quietly, mainly thanks to Storm Jorge and things being cancelled. It’s been nice though. I went out today to get a few bits of shopping and I feel like I’m organised for the week ahead which is a lovely feeling. I also went for a little wander with the camera, just to The Holy Well and Ballisodare Falls – I’ve posted a pic of the The Holy Well overflowing and if you head for my blog Facebook page you’ll see some video of both places.
I hope you all have a lovely week and I hope the panic attacks take a hike.
Well I’m impressed if you can have potato chips in the house and not eat them all right away, till they’re gone! That’s what I do. Not all at once, but a small serving bowl each day till they’re gone. Is it the crunch? Is it the salt? I have to only buy them when they’re on sale or I’ll end up a blimp with high blood pressure. -Kate
