The vast majority of anti-Obama sentiment seems to be based on disinformation, rumor-mongering and fear-mongering rather than on facts. Could THIS election help change America back to a culture built on honesty, trust, hope and building people up rather than tearing them down?
I am having a really bad one at the moment and it feels like I can’t breathe properly. My chest and throat are so tight they are suffocating me and my heart is racing. I also can’t stop the tears from falling.
Just wondered if anyone has any good suggestions that may help, I seem to be getting more and more of them and they get worse. I feel so silly.
I am suffering from PTSD (complex traumas), Chronic Grief & Chronic Depression.
My grandsons are due to be taken abroad on holiday soon and the middle one (7) has expressed to me a fear of flying (maybe to do with things he has seen on the television).
I have told his parents and they say that he will be fine but I want to help prepare him so that he can relax and enjoy his holiday.
Does anyone know of any good books?
Also is it true that the air in an aeroplane is recirculated and what,if any,precautions can be taken so that young children don’t pick up a bug?
Mary – thank you for your answer but I think that the noise would make that worse for him and frighten him further (he is a very sensitive child).
And I certainly wouldn’t want to go to an airport uneccessarily these days – in fact I’ve never been to one yet and don’t intend to!.
I only wish they would stay here or go by boat,train or whatever.
Thank you very much gman818 – I am looking into it and hope I am in time !
I’m 31 & hate driving. I remember being 15 & taking drivers ed class and this police man coming showing us all these AWFUL pictures of car accidents and honestly I’ve been scared to death since then. My husband drives all the time when he can. I usually drive on Tuesdays to take my oldest to our homeschool co-op for the day. On Tuesdays my stomach is so shaken that I have an awful upset stomach all day long.
I have been seen doctors before but really no help. I’ve been on panic attack and depression drugs, but none helped. I just hate driving.
I mainly drive when I have to for my kids. My fears are honestly hitting another car and causing TONS of dollars in damage, killing another person mainly my children & doing something stupid like getting pulled over.
Anyone else deal with this? I hate parking so I park far away from other cars, no way I will ever drive at night time.
Also anyone know if this can be passed down in the family? My grandmother never drove. When asked she said she could drive, but never did.
I really just want to know how common is this. I feel so alone with my fear of driving.
Well I just turned 20 and still haven’t plucked up the courage to learn to drive, irresponsible friends having minor crashes all over the place has been offputting. I’m just afraid I’ll completely blank through fear & crash or end up driving around the same roundabout until 2010 because I’m too afraid to turn off into the traffic. So do the instructors have complete control to prevent any fear related mishaps?
first i will tell you I am a very shy person!When I signed up for college for the first time,the advisor placed me in a public speaking class.As soon as she told me,I about freaked out,she knew i was a little worried from the look on my face,But she assured me that people who are shy like I was had the same fears I did,and ended up doing well in the class!i knew I wasnt going to drop the class,cause i knew I would have to take it sooner or later My 2nd day of class they made us pick a partner & ask them questions.Then we had to go up in front of the class & introduce eachother.I had a few minutes to prepare myself before my partner & I went up.When it was our turn I wanted to go 1st so i could get my part out of the way!I told the class my partners name,where she was from, and when i got to the 3rd thing I suddenly got HOT and my insides started SHAKING, it was almost to the point of TEARS! I continued on, I don’t think no one noticed, But I got thru it. anyone in a similar situation?
I never faced this in highschool. I would always happen to miss a day we had to speak in class!, But this is college and I want to do well!
