I had a terrifying event happen last night on my way home from work.  My car broke down on the Interstate!  I was terrified.  Of course my Jim came to my rescue, but sitting there on the interstate in the dark was terrifying for me.  My stomach instantly started cramping and I started feeling bad because of the stress I'm sure.  This a.m. I feel neauseated and my left arm and left jaw are slightly bothering me.  I'm not concerned that I may be having a heart attack or anything as I have been thoroughly checked for that.  My arm is also tender where I got my flu shot yesterday morning.  But it's amazing at how stress affects us.  Ok, done ranting and thank you for letting me rant!

Oh, that would have me in a state as well.....and the next day I'd feel the after effects once the adrenaline wore off.

I'm happy to hear you made it home safely. What was wrong with your car that it broke down?

We're not sure, Quincy. I hadn't had any problems, oil just recently changed etc. LOL first question my husband asked was does it have gas? He knows when I get down to a quarter of a tank I fill up! My first thought was alternator but when Jim tried to charge up my battery it still wouldn't turn over. Hopefully it is in the shop by now so we'll see. Now, I'm going to be paranoid when I drive home from work in the evenings since it's always dark now w/ the time change. Oh well this too shall pass.

Thank you Emory and Quincy, Yes, Emory, thank God for cell phones! When it happened I prayed that I wasn't in a dead zone! We're w/ at&t and that doesn't happen often thank goodness!
