Hey kids, here’s a fun live-blogging experiment: let’s see if the Klonopin I took 10 minutes ago can stop this oncoming panic attack in its tracks!

Here’s hoping.

(Remind me to tell you later about how I’ve finally realized there’s a connection between immoderate alcohol consumption and a combined hangover/panic attack the following day. Yes, I will be filing this information somewhere accessible.)

The big cat has just come over to see how I’m doing–he’s my best, and most consistent, antidote against the panic. And the small cat is on the couch with me too. I will be fine. I will be fine. I will be fine.

I’ll get back to you about the Klonopin results–hopefully soon.
