Encylopedia of Me P is for . . .

Panic Attack

I have ever suffered one of these and it was awful. When I was at uni studying to be a preschool teacher and while I was on teaching practise I suffered one of these. I was getting accessed to see if I had passed the teaching module. I knew I had done ok. I knew there was nothing to be alarmed about. However, as I was talking to the lecturer I suddenly felt awful but I didnt want to say anything. I felt sick. I felt light headed. I thought if I say anything I will fail. I was tingling all over. I felt dizzy. It lasted hours. Even after I knew I had passed. Still I told no one. Eventually I came right. The next day I told the teachers and they were shocked and supportive. I am a recovering depressant who takes meds. I wasnt taking them at the time. I had taken myself off them. I will never take myself off them again it is NOT worth it.

Phobias – bridges

I dont like having to walk over bridges particularly if they are high. I dont like the cracks they have in them between the planks of wood. I have a real fear of falling.


– heights
I also dont like heights. Even being up on a ladder is scary for me. Once when I was a girl I went to a historical house and got stuck. I had gone up a very steep ladder to investigate the maids quarters and only made it half way up the ladder. I couldnt go up nor down. I had to be talked down.

I have to been to the Sky Tower in Auckland twice. The first time when I got to the top most observation deck I found myself pinned up against the inner wall. The 2nd and last time I was with Mr Wonderful and it was only because he was with me talking to me holding me that I was able to walk across the glass. It still amazes me that I trusted him so much we hadnt known each other for all that long.



I have taken to eating this for breakfast. I have found nothing else fills me up in quite the same way.


Pumpkin Soup
I LOVE Pumpkin Soup. I first tried it when I went to a yoga conference. I use to do yoga when I was a girl. I LOVED it then and got the recipe. I like it to be thick and creamy. YUMMMMMMMMM



Speaking of Pumpkin. Have you seen this news story???

Im praying for this wee girl today. They nicknamed her Pumpkin to start with.

I hope they catch up with her no good father and throw the book at him apparently he has fled to America

I pray that she maybe reunited with her Mummy as soon as possible poor wee poppet.



  1. Firstly I”m with you on the news story, I hope they find her mother or father, yep I too love pumpkin soup and porridge – yum! And I use to be terrified of heights, I’m still a big scared and don’t like going on small ladders even.

  4. Oh the Skytower, It was a pleasure to help somebody who had great fears, and yes it takes a lot of trust and faith in people to be able to do something like walking over glass at so many hundred meters high and to be able to achieve a such strength to walk with the hands with vice grips onto my hands is a challenge, but hey we all have our own fears at some places and hide them just need to trust people to be able to get over fears.

  5. That poor baby! 😦

    I love porridge, or oatmeal as we call it here. Never had pumpkin soup but I’ve had it several other ways. Pumpkin pie is a favorite dessert here, especially for Thanksgiving.

    You know how I feel about bridges!

  6. I think most people have some phobia, like you I hate heights and restricted spaces, love pumpkin soup and porridge, get creeped out by cockroaches but love swing bridges which is the one thing that scares my strong man! We all need the everlasting arms in our times of need. Poor wee girl. I’m glad she is safe though.

  7. And you are brave to post your phobias. Oh, you are making me want some pumpkin soup. Or butternut squash soup. I got a great recipe for squash soup yesterday and I want to try it out.

    Have yourself a wonderful day.

  11. Yes… I’ve been catching the news here in Sydney. It’s really unfortunate to see what happened to little Pumpkin. 😦 And now that they’ve found her dead mom… my prayer goes out to Pumpkin and her family…
