When I received an order….

There was a moment at the weekend when I received a multiple order for my handmade crafts when I felt a spreading feeling of warmth inside, a smile forced itself onto my face, when I felt like I grew taller as I sat up tall, my heart rate seemed to quicken and small fairies danced in my tummy and my hands tightened into fists and punched the air!

When I felt everything was out of control

There was a moment today when I felt what I would describe as panicky which I would describe physically as dizziness, nausea, a tight gripping sensation in my chest and sweaty. Even harder to describe is the feeling that my mind was literally racing ahead of my body’s physical capabilities.

Feeling sick and almost choking

When walking to work this morning

Spikes through my heart

I was having a conversation with a friend at lunchtime and felt spikes through my heart at several points.

Smooth constant poking pressure

There was a moment (While sat on the train) that I felt a smooth constant poking pressure between my left collarbone and my throat that made me cough

Tension flowing out of my shoulders

There was a moment today (when I stopped running around from on thing to another) where I noticed a tension in my shoulders, as I acknowledged it (by thinking ‘oh I can post that on SLP’ it started to drain down the front of my chest leaving an empty ache, mainly in the joint of my left shoulder.


There was a moment today when I danced like nobody was watching. It felt liberating and I felt my body full of buzzing energy.

Ants under my skin

Head rush

There was a moment (when I stood up quickly after drinking a few glasses of wine) that I had the sensation of all my body’s energy flowing to up into my chest , hovering for a few seconds & then filling up my head in a wave, making my eyes feel like they were rolling back in my head.

The sensation then became like exploding candy in my brain
