Sitting outside the concert hall

Listening in, sounds great. I even have a ticket. Too bad I get too anxious to sit through more than 5 songs. Tight chest, laboured breathing, general overall discomfort...


This is the second time, but it’s much less severe than last time. I get settled in, in the middle of a row, and I just can’t relax. Maybe I feel trapped. Maybe I’m so nervous about not feeling well and ruining my wife’s evening that I end up actually not feeling well and ruining my wife’s evening.

I tried visualising being elsewhere. I tried deep breathing. I tried telling myself to just knock it off.

I just want to go home. Aaaaaargh! The music’s great and I’d love to go back in and sit with my wife.
