The DOGgone Truth

The DOGgone Truth

The DOGgone Truth. . .   Do you ever wonder what people are saying about you? I mean your close friends. Are they always 100% truthful? You’d like to think so. Personally, I can’t be around people or call anyone a true friend if I don’t think they are. But...
Running on Empty

Running on Empty

I can honestly say this has NEVER happened to me in my entire driving career which has spanned . . . .achhum,  a few decades. I was always taught to fill the tank when it gets to half a tank (thanks dad).  But yesterday as I was tooling around town...

In the Presence of a Service Dog

“Oh My God he’s so cute”- “Look Madge it’s a Seeing Eye Dog”- Those are just some of the things I hear as I walk thru a public place with my Service Dog Milo.  It’s been quite an education getting used to having him with me. And some of the things I hear and see people do would fill up a book I’m sure. I have to say 85% of the time we get nothing but kindness from the public, but it saddens me when the other 15% don’t behave well.   So from a handler of  a Service Dog I thought I would try to educate the public a little. Not all Service Dogs are “Seeing Eye Dogs”.    Service dogs  are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. They come in many shapes and sizes and can be trained for many different purposes.  They can...
Get off the couch and Play your Panic Attacks Away

Get off the couch and Play your Panic Attacks Away

Remember the last time your energetic doggie stared at you, just begging for some Frisbee action? It was about 5 minutes ago right!  Bet you couldn’t  ignore those pleading eyes, so instead of vegging on the couch, you got up and played a tug-o-war  with your best bud. No doubt,...

Rescue 911

Rescue 911

I’m watching the rescue of the miners, well,  I was but it’s hard to watch. For the past two months when I think about them trapped underground like that I find that i can’t breath. My sister reminds me that i’m not trapped down there, but I feel for these...

Walk thru the Panic

Posted by unwrapping panic at 1/27/2012 8:49 AM | Add Comment Walk thru the Panic- that’s what the “experts” say you have to do to overcome the attacks. Ten years ago when someone told me to do that, I couldn’t even wrap my head around that thought. Today, as i was in one of my favorite stores- (no not in a mall- still trying to concur those) i could feel my palpitations starting, as i stood on line to pay for a pair of jeans i needed.  My first instinct was of course to run- leave- get out.  But of course all the hard work I’ve gone thru with therapy would tell me to stay and “walk thru the fear” so  i stayed in line. I hated it. I could have dumped the jeans in a minute, but I had to stay there as sweat was pouring down my face...

I hated it. I could have dumped the jeans in a minute, but I had to stay there as sweat was pouring down my face and anyone looking at me would have thought Iwas having a heart attack, but i stayed put feet planted on the ground repeating to myself, i am breathing, there is air,
there is no danger.  I couldn’t wait to get to the car. But I stayed put and walked thru it. I’m not saying I am able to do that with each attack but this one on a scale of 1-10 was only a 6 so I walked thru the fear. Anyone with REAL panic attacks knows this is not easy to do. Share some of your stories here too, we would love to hear them.

RX for Panic Attacks-says Dr. Oz
Rx For Panic Attacks: Lace Up Your Sneakers if you’re no stranger to sweaty palms, frantic thoughts, a racing heart and other signs of a looming panic attack, this could keep you cool as a cucumber: physical activity. It can dial down your reaction enough to keep little blips of anxiety (like when you can’t find your car in a humongous parking lot) from snowballing into something bigger and scarier. Turns out that regular activity (like the brisk half-hour walk you take every day, right?) helps you stay calm when you feel early signs of Big Trouble. (And by the way, you’re not alone. Nearly one in 20 adults will deal with panic at some point in their lives.) This is the latest addition to the ways being active improves emotional as well as physical health. It’s already proven to ease depression, reduce normal anxiety and relieve stress. Whether you’re seeing a therapist to deal with panic or trying to cope with a milder case on your own, turns out that exercise is a great add-on. Try it for mild cases of nerves, too. A morning bike ride might ease the butterflies before you give a speech at the local Rotary Club or present a project to your boss. Just 30 minutes of movement decreases stress hormones and increases feel-good brain chemicals. Your mind quiets down, and you can focus on the key things … like solving whatever triggered that “uh-oh” feeling in the first place. (Gee, I stopped at the ATM first after I parked my car. Maybe it’s near there!)
