Awesome work!


It sounds like you were using some mindfulness skills. Were you doing that intuitively or do you know some mindfulness/grounding techniques?

I learned that even though I felt shaky and scared I was able to function normally.
It was hard to sit through the meal in a large, relatively noisy restaurant, but I kept
focusing on the "here and now" and on my breathing.

Great work!


Challenging that fear sounds like it would be really tough but you did it!

What do you think you learned from that experience going out with your friend?

I have recently had two bouts of superventricular tachycardia.  One required a cardioversion in the hospital.  I have been afraid to do almost anything since then - concerned that it would happen again.  I am now on a medication that is supposed to prevent the tachycardia.  Tonight I went to a restaurant with a friend, and to three stores for brief shopping trips, despite my fear.  Despite a pounding heart and other symptoms, there was no tachycardia.  I feel somewhat uplifted that I did these things, despite the fear.
