Hello again friends! Remember me? First, I must apologise for the complete lack of posts in the last 10 months. Ibiza was amazing, I got into University of Glasgow and am now nearly finished my first year – scary stuff! We’re on the exam count down which means everyone is getting busy with revision and the usual panics so I thought I’d share with you a little word of advice – when you begin to panic, take long deep breaths until you calm down.
Last month a friend of a friend came to visit us all in halls so, as you would expect, we went clubbing. It was brilliant, everyone was having a laugh and even those of us who aren’t keen on clubs were actually enjoying ourselves! Until this friend of a friend realised she felt really sick and came to the conclusion her drink had been spiked.
Two of us bundled her into a taxi. We told her she would be home soon and could sleep off whatever was wrong with her. Which was okay until she had a panic attack from pure fear. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m willing to help anyone. My flat mates and friends refer to me as Mother, but in that moment I had no idea what to do other than get her to sit and breathe slowly and deeply.
In the end, everything turned out fine. She hadn’t been spiked, just hadn’t realised how drunk she was. So after that experience I had learnt two lessons.
- If you start to panic, breathe slowly and deeply until you have calmed down.
- Watch how much you’re drinking so you don’t become a mess in front of people you’ve never met before.
To finish off, I just wanted to say thanks again for starting off reading my ramblings in the first place and sorry again for leaving for so long. If you remember me from June/July 2014, then hello! If you’re new, welcome! Please feel free to take a read through some of my older posts or follow me on Twitter. Have a great day whatever you get up to! Ktkinnes xx
