I'm seriously considering sleeping in a facemask - the DIY sort - next time I have to stay with my in-laws. Their house makes me sick.

I found the explanation of PTSD delayed-reaction panic attacks VERY interesting, as I'm sure you can imagine, and now I understand why I could go see my friend Nicki the day she had her new baby, and didn't get sick until early the following day - it took me that long to come down from the real danger.

Remember I said at the time that there was a reason for it, but I didn't have enough tuits to explain then? This is your (very delayed) explanation. I almost mentioned that in the post :)

It's extra-reassuring because it means I'm a little less likely to have a full-blown panic attack (though I may still be weeping from fear) when I next need a surgical procedure, ie in 98 days' time. And worrying about panic attacks is about as much fun as you know it is :)
