[Current Mood |annoyed and anxious]

File this under "Not having a clue":

My sister, her husband, and I got together at Universal Citywalk to have dinner and hang out, in celebration of our two birthdays (it's three weeks after mine, and about a week and a half before hers...). When we get our drinks, I pull out my pills, and take a Zantac, for my acid reflux. My sister asks me what that's for, and I tell her. Then, my sister, knowing that I suffer from panic attacks, and having had explained to her at some point in the past the thought process that goes into a panic attack (basically, I'm oversensitive to the changes in my body, and constantly interpret those changes as something that's going to kill me...), says the following sentence:

"Did you know that you can die from acid reflux?"

Guess what I had driving home? Oh yeah. My first panic attack since going on Zoloft.

I avoid my family for a reason.

Hang in there

I understand about families not having a clue about that sort of thing... but, perhaps with reinforcement, they'll get the hint and stop setting these attacks off?

It's worth hoping for.

My ways easier...

I just avoid my family as often as I can. They've never understood me, nor shown any interest in trying to. I'm much happier spending time with the family that I chose, rather than the ones that happen to be related by blood...

I'd take boring any day over anxiety causing...

As you can see, my family causing me stress is traditional.

I think they're coming back from Alaska soon. Bleh...
