Tamora Pierce on fighting back -- or not -- and why either option is perfectly valid. This is coming from the author of several series about fierce fighting women, so if she can say, "Look, my books are books; stay safe", we might do well to listen.

Bits and bobs, December 16:

he was right? neat

My love, my darling, my Sky told me to look up adrenaline reactions and panic attacks.* Lo and behold, the Daily Fail has some good information. Most of the time, it's a gossip rag, but I guess it's got its gems here and there.

* Because I get them, and no,
these steps won't work**. Steps 1 and 2 are sensible, I'm sure, but with me, it's more the physical fact of having a panic attack that sets off... a panic attack. Yep. Mine manifest with nausea, and I'm an emetophobe. Dear universe: HA BLOODY HA. So, no, just changing my negative thinking won't help matters. I've got to deal with the physical reaction or I will cycle into more attacks. I promise you I am not pleasant to be around when that happens.

** By contrast, they work very well when I wake up from a nightmare, when I do need to remind myself that I'm here-now, not there-then. Everything has its own application, huh?

hey, cool
