My heart held steady all day with only what I call a "mini palp" which is a barely perceptible thump during a stressful situation. I also felt even smaller "mini palps" when sitting forward in a cross legged position propped up on my elbows to use my computer at a small table - no more lying on side propping up on elbows for me. I need a taller computer table so that I do not have to "prop" and therefore compress my chest. I also made efforts in my car not to relax into the bucket seats for hours and to straighten my back a lot. I made a special effort not to argue and I had the Valerian ready in case I felt anxiety, which I did not on this particular day.
I want to return to regular Yoga for my back which I had been doing on a regular basis before I started my business 4 years ago. I am also considering chiropractic adjustment which I had years before.
It annoys me that I was doing all the "right things" but then stopped, never believing that things could get worse than they already were. I used to get very small palps but ignored them, and I used to do Yoga and take Valerian for my anxiety on an as-needed basis. Why did I stop? I got preoccupied with other things. This really lets a person know that NOTHING is as important as their health- if your health stops, so does EVERYTHING else.
