Panic attacks is one of the things I can do without. —– I am speaking of those panic attacks associated with the Parasympathetic Nervous System where you have to breathe through a paper bag to slow your racing heart rate down.
Whenever I get one of these things, I also keep a bottle of lavender oil around because a few drops of the oil on a shirt sleeve or a pillow or something seems to help to calm me down and to mitigate the effects of the panic attacks.
The only reason I am talking about these things is because I had a panic attack yesterday for the first time in years and I have no idea of what might have triggered it. They are supposed to be stress-related and I cannot think of any kind of stress that I would be under. Thankfully everything has returned to normal and good this morning!
I had an idea that I might start using pre-packaged prepared frozen meals as part of my weight control efforts until I found out that they are really heavy on the salt and my blood pressure monitor does not like a lot of salt at all. So much for another “Good” brainfart that I had and have now flushed down the drain!
