My 4th sucked. I was woefully ill prepared for the amount of firesworks our neighbors were going to be displaying, needless to say massive panic attack ensued.

Luckily I had Xanax on hand and was able to take one and stop it from worsening, however it was horrible. I ended up fast asleep 20 minutes after and awoke perfectly a ok.

Loud noises for me are a instant panic attack trigger and I’m unsure why I wasn’t better prepared knowing the 4th is a big deal. I guess because none of the big displays were happening I assumed it would be a quiet night.

Welp here’s to now knowing my street, and those around me, are VERY much firework lovers and expecting that going forward for New Years and such.

I do hope everyone else’s holiday weekend was much better than mine
