@Marinewife Oh no! Wish I had been able to read it. One of the things I do is copy any text I write and then wait to see if it posts. If it doesn't, then all I have to do is paste the copied text and try again. (This is a problem SG has had on-and-off for awhile.)
I hope you have had a better day today. Do you have a blood pressure cuff to keep track of things? And I would definitely call your doctor Monday. A panic attack is one thing, but if your blood pressure has skyrocketed to the point that a panic attack can put you in physical danger, that definitely needs to be addressed.
I'm doing okay after the party. Bit of a mild migraine.
Lots of *hugs*

@Raine14 Going to give this another try. You asked what my daughter s nd I like to do, the answer is nothing. I haven't seen her in person for ten years. The last time we went out, she wanted to go to lunch.I stopped at Applebees and she said, no, they don't have anything I like. Ok, so off to TGIF, we went in she read the menu, and turned to leave. What's wrong? I don't like anything here either. I dug in my heels and told her to find something or we were going home. She did, but wouldn't talk the entire time. After a quiet ride back, she left. So, I know I need to walk on eggshells around my kid. She wants me to spend a weekend at her condo, which I have never seen. Bad idea. I can only take her in small doses at a time. For now, the phone will do. She told me that she has been in AA for three years. She started drinking and drugging in HS. Mom had no clue. She would get home from school, go directly to her room and never want to talk. Letting guys in through the window to party. All of this coming to light 20 years later. I want to believe her, but I need to move very slowly. About my plans, clean and clean some more. My husband is wonderful about running errands and shopping, cooking, baking, even dishes. But cleaning is not his thing. My house looks like a frat house, gone wild! Lol Every surface is covered with stuff. Some trash, other stuff that never got put away. Under that is a pile of dust. Don't get me started on the floors and cobwebs! Ick!!. This is not my house. But it will be again maybe by Christmas. Today, I am making beef stew. We had a cold snap in Atlanta, so it's the perfect time for a hot, hearty meal. I am feeling better today. Just waiting to see what happens. I will call my GP tomorrow. Thanks for caring, Rainey. Love ya

@Marinewife I swear the more I hear about your daughter, the more she sounds like my sister. I know I've mentioned my sister, but have I said she has borderline personality disorder? Researching that has helped me a lot in understanding her and learning how to deal with her -- absolutely not an expert, though. Only our mother seems to be able stay on her "good side," and we have established that's most likely because everyone else is firmly in the "bad side." But it is an interesting dynamic of villain-victim-rescuer. My sister ALWAYS has a villain to complain about. She views our mom as a rescuer (which isn't necessarily a good thing. It stresses our mom out terribly). And my sister often feels like a victim and cannot put herself into another person's shoes to understand that they too might be an injured party. She overshares with "rescuers," which ultimately drove her long-time boyfriend off, and is constantly battling rapid mood swings. Alcohol, drug use, and sex are fairly stereotypical coping methods for folks with borderline. I keep waiting for my sister to swing that way, but so far she's stuck to compulsive shopping, obsessive exercising, and overeating. Not great. Could be worse. So yeah, that's my sister. See any similarities?
To be honest, your husband sounds amazing! He can cook? Bake? Shop without constantly calling you for verification on potential purchased goods? . . . Does he have a nephew?
It's good weather for some house cleaning. Cool enough that you won't get overheated and sunny enough that you can open all the windows. (PS I knew you were a Southern gal, but I didn't realize we were practically neighbors! Saying hi from Tennessee!) How is the house cleaning going? Does it feel good to tackle the mess?
Thank you for caring too.
