Good boys

Had an anxiety attack last night. Middle of the night, already tucked up in bed. Even let the dog upstairs (and he was a very Good Boy). So exhausting.

Eventually I got to sleep, but I kept waking up. But every time I woke up I had Andrew glomming onto one side of me and the dog pressed right up against my leg on the other side, and the pressure and warmth were intense enough to be really comforting. I was always able to get back to sleep, until a reasonable time this morning.

I'm sorry you got set off by one. I hope it's a while before the next one.

Any idea why you're being hit by them at the moment?

I'm sorry you had to go through that, but i'm glad you had the comfort of Andrew and the dog.

That's very similar to what Jack and I do for Lucy when she's struggling with her depression and anxiety, to ground her, one each side, usually with at least one of the cats joining us and just... be there, let her know we're there. Reassure her and hold her close.

Anxiety attacks don't sound fun. But warmth from humans and doggies sound nice. I hope you are feeling a little better today.
