Sometimes, we can have a calm, family film night. All snuggled up on the sofa, with drinks and treats. But then….
… I would have a ‘wave of fear’ come over me, anxiously breathing faster as I feel a pain emerge in my chest. I start to feel terrified like something awful is about to happen. My heart starts beating faster, my head becomes dizzy, noises become muffled and I feel sick in my stomach.
While this is all happening, my outer self/ body has been sat with the children with a smile on it’s face. Like everything is just fine. X
