It is just short of 10PM. I am watching football. My wife was in the bedroom, doing what ever, and all of the sudden BOOM!! I felt like a knife went through my entire body! I jumped and screamed her name. She apologized for dropping the cedar chest lid. No one realizes how loud noises impact me. I am vibrating inside still.
Another issue is riding in the car. When I think cars are too close, stopping too quickly, or are puling out in front of us, I flinch! I told my wife tonight I really do not like riding in the car anymore! Truthfully, I never want to leave our retirement community again! These drivers are crazy! Running red lights, pulling out where there is no room, cutting in front of you and then stopping! I did not drive that bad when I was drunk!
I see more and more issues increasing with how I react to anything that is out of my comfort zone. I guess that is just the new normal.
