This is a follow-up to yesterday’s post when I began the story of how I was tingly all over a few nights ago. Click here for that intro.
Now, for part 2…
I can be a dramatic person so with that comes an element of panic. Sometimes the panic is legitimate and sometimes it’s not. I think the moments that are worthy of panicking are usually pretty clear. This night I’ve been writing about was one of those moments.
There’s more to the story about where I was sleeping and why this water leak was just part of an overall stressful situation but the point of what was happening was that there was a leak in the roof and it was the middle of the night. When you’re in a tight space, a leak is not good at all! I woke up to the water dripping but first thought it was one of my dogs peeing on the floor. Oh how I wish that were the case haha!
So once the leak was discovered I obviously couldn’t sleep anymore, mostly due to anger because this was directly due to someone else’s negligence.
I did all I could do, then tried to lay down and rest until morning. As soon as my head hit the pillow, my fingertips began to feel tingly and my heart was racing. At this point all I knew to do was pray. I wish I could say there was an immediate answer from God, but I think He just kept me from completely falling apart. For that, I’m grateful.
So this tingly feeling was new to me, because of the cause and I didn’t know exactly how to handle it. I wondered if I would need to find someone to help me, not with the leak, but with my physical condition– the panic.
To wrap up, the situation with the leak has now been resolved, so at the very least this was a great learning experience for me in multiple ways.
Have you ever felt something like this, a situation that is almost out of your control and causes you to feel helpless? If so, how did you respond and were there any solutions to calm the nerves?
Thanks for stopping by to read about my situations 🙂
