Huevos Rancheros

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

It’s a real shame heart attacks and panic attacks don’t have more unique qualities that help me differentiate what medical event I am having.

I google my symptoms and I get two choices: go to the ER or take some deep breaths. Where’s the middle ground here, people?

It’s been a week. I mean, it’s nothing I can’t handle. Like, I’m a big girl. I’m a rock star. I am basically super wife because I somehow found time to make vegan treats for Garr’s soldiers, like I am a STAR. *Cue physical ramifications of stress.*

So, I’m already wound up, right? And your girl has a doctor appointment today. This makes me wind up tighter than a knotted yo-yo because of traffic, parking, finding new doctor’s office, meeting doctor, hoping she likes me, wondering if she has washed her hands – that whole thing. I’m walking in and I just KNOW it’s going to be a high blood pressure day. I can feel the blood pumping extra thick in my veins. Sure enough – through the roof!!!!! I laughed & was like “Oh, you know, just a little white coat syndrome!!!!” Ha. Ha ha.

And now I stew with anxiety about my blood pressure and am down a Web MD rabbit hole. Joy. Rapture.

    Well sistah, I am with you on that “white-coat” syndrome, and my doctor proved it was a real anxiety of mine when getting my BP checked by having me lay on my left side for 10 minutes quietly. He then retook my BP and it was almost normal not “through the roof OMG I’m going to have a heart attack right now and die right before you” high like it was. However I am on very low BP meds since then. I could eat huevos rancheros every friggin’ day of the week, too. Damn that looks good.

      Oh, I’ve never heard of laying on the left side! I’m trying that next time. I went to the doctor again this week and immediately broke out in hives, so I think it really is just the white coats!!!! Pls eat these everyday, I think you’ll be a very happy lady.

    I read some really good advice on managing panic attacks the other day (I have a polite interest, you understand 😉) …. 1). As it starts remember that you have survived every single one of these waves before, you road em out and you walked away. As scary as they were, you survived. 2). Instead of fighting it get excited, love it – fear and excitement are both driven by adrenaline so run towards it and bring it on. It is hyper scary but it does work. Fear grows as you fight so getting excited about this surge of fear will pop the bubble and stop it expanding. It will pass in a minute or so and you can grin like a fricking lunatic because you took it on and you rode it and you loved it. 3). Shake it out – shake your arms and legs and physically dissipate those stress hormones. Now this might all sound a bit like I’m tripping the light fandango to the nuthouse but I had an attack yesterday and I did get excited and I did shake my arms and legs like a wet dog after a dip in the ocean and I must say it did work. And I did as it started remind myself that I am alive and that I have survived all the others and that I was going to survive this one. It’s not a cure …. there will be more but it is a coping mechanism and once you are through it you can cook up some more scrumptious delights for your audience because to be frank, that is the reason I’m being nice to you. It’s just selfishness. Base. Selfishness.

      You, my dear, have made my heart sing. Getting excited about a panic attack?! Who has ever heard of such a thing?! I’m doing it next time. The shaking I can try, too. How far can I take out? Can I roll around the floor like a dog? Will that increase the positive effects? 😀

        Yes! That’ll double it and some. I personally favour rolling down hills. But be sure to check for roads or rivers at the bottom before trying this at home 😊
