i feel a ton better. on reflection, russ is right on; the missing elements of mental agitation and increase acuity (a sharpening that is very unpleasant) fogged the notion of panic attacks right out of my mind. tho now, i'm pretty sure that's what they were (i've general anxiety disorder as one of the mental conditions, and have experienced panic attacks but of a different sort). it fits and wouldn't be the first time my body has responded to something without my overt mental state being synchronized. if i feel off next week, i'll go see jaynie then.
mom is coming in this weekend, i think. she and i will bake ourselves silly next week and catch up with each otehr and craft together and all that. my guy is planning to be here later this evening and we will be together for the next few days. he will be hunting, i may go too (but maybe not). it depends on how i am feeling on those days (cramping in the woods is not a favored activity).
at any rate, enjoy your thanksgiving and your upcoming busy days as much as possible!
