You are not alone in this fear of storms as many others feel the same way. Sometimes when there are bad storms our lights will go out and we have no power. I will go to our lower level and curl up on the couch with my comforter and my dog as she is so afraid that I find I am trying to comfort her and I forget how much I hate thunder.
My Mother always told me thunder was God rolling beer barrels in heaven.....my Mother had a drinking problem. J
Thanks for the advice and understanding guys,
The last of the storm is just about over now, and we shouldnt have any more for a few days, but ive now found that if i use my mp3 player, and turn up the tunes, it helps.
dosent fully stop the attacks or anxiuosness, but relieves it alot. Ahhh where would i be without Iron Maiden. hehe..
A slip of the foot you may soon recover,
but a slip of the tongue you may never get over.
Thats an excellent point, it may be that it is a phsycological anxiety, lightning never used to bother me i used to sit outside and watch it or film it, but now terrifies me, its not the thunder so much as the lightning. I will deffinately try to get a recording of a storm and try listening to it when no storm is happening, and see what happens, as you say it could be a way to eleviate the anxiety..
Thanks heaps for the advice..
It's actually getting better i think i just had to adjust to it.
Now the kids get more freaked out than i do i actually sit on the balcony watching the lightning (we get awsome lightning shows here) ...
Heheheheheh, I like Canadians, i have some freinds that have toured alot of Canada and the pictures they have brought back are amazing, Some really beautiful places in Canada.
Would love to tour there one day.. EH..lol's
