Silly Experiences That Have Shaken You Up?

Recommended Posts

Have you ever had an experience that at the time scared the crap out of you but looking back you realise was silly?

I'm asking because I had one on Friday.

Got home from college and sat on the sofa to watch TV and chill out.

After about 10 minutes I got up to get a drink and as I tried to open the living room door I realised the handle was broken.

I'm claustrophobic and I PANICKED big time.

I was in the house on my own trapped in a room and no one would be home for at least two hours. Looking back on it now panicking was silly. There were windows in the room it wasn't like I was trapped in a tunnel or anything and if I hadn't of known the door was broken I'd have quite happily sat there for two hours oblivious. But it really shook me up. I felt so claustrophobic and I ended up getting my neighbour to pass me a screwdriver through the window and taking off the handle to get out. I'm such a scaredy cat! rolleyes.gif

Oh girl, that is a good one.


Yep, I have had many of these mean little moments.


One... I was walking down the steps out of my house, and I was looking at my neighbours across the road. Next thing you know, I'm falling down landing on my ankle and twisted it a bit. It felt like I was falling miles and miles off the step but, really it was only a inch or two high. My heart pounded like I was being chased by a murderer and I seemed to be quite touchy for the rest of the day.


Days turned into weeks that turned into months and I always keep my eyes off my neighbours, but I hate it when that happens and you feel like your having a heart attack, but your not.


Has that happened to you? Apart from the time you spoke of here? :)

Yeah I had one of those claustrophobic moments. I used to go tanning at quite a popular salon every second, if not every day before work or after the gym. After about a year I went to one of those number 3 beds that closes and opens wit the push of a button. After about 5 minutes the fuze must have blown becaus ethe music, fan and lights went off. I had it closed pretty tightly and on the feet end of the tanning bed is a fan and the top opening above the head had the wall behind it. So I waited for a minute if the restart it or something. Then I started yelling for someone. After about 10 Minutes finally one of the other guetss heard me and got a girl at the desk. The beds are in these indiidual stalls that remind me of bathroom stalls, open on the top. The girl could not find the damn key to get into the stall and get me out of there. She got the manager who also couldnt't find it and was too big to climb over the damn top. By that time I was panicking and trying to either press myself between the top opening and the wall or between the tiny gap on my side. Neither worked. Finally they reached another manager at her home who 45 minutes later (I looked at the clock when I came out), climbed ove rthe top of the door, opened it and the three of them lifted the top and got me out. At that point I was hsaking, crying and did not give a damn that I was naked with just a teeny towel they handed me. The one manager sat there with me for another 20 minutes when I got dressed because I could not stop shaking and get the shock off me. I never used the bed fully closed again and always hadthe phone right next where I could grab it after that when I still use dto go tanning.

A few weeks ago, I had a rather bizarre day that kind of makes me a bit tense at times lately when walking around downtown.  To make a long story short, I was out doing some shopping one day, and there was an empty walkway (maybe 12ft in width) I was walking through.  I saw a guy coming in the distance, and walked toward the other side; he then did the same.  With about 20 feet between us, I then walked toward the opposite side; he followed again.  He kept shadowing whatever way I walked, then came right up to me, stopped in front and smirked, then brushed by me.  Needless to say I was a little weirded out.


Fast forward a few hours later, I was on my way to get some school work done, and I was carrying my laptop and some notebooks with my research, so I had quite a bit I was carrying and was walking pretty slowly.  I went to go through the crosswalk by the Starbucks I was headed to and there was a big crowd, so I walked alongside the outside of it, and this guy pushing through the crowd suddenly steps outside of the crowd, slams into me with incredible force, then stops and starts yelling obscenities at me.  This was in an area with a number of bars, so he was probably trashed, but yeah, that shook me up.


I'll admit that I'd feel my heartbeat increase when I'd reach a crosswalk around there after that for the next little while.  I know it was sheer bad luck to bump into two jerks in one evening (I walk everywhere and this never happens), but I still felt a little tense after that.  It's not really rational, but it did make me kinda paranoid walking by myself for a bit.  Anyway, that's my silly experience!

    • Now I'm happy because I bought an expensive set of cosmetics and a large organizer. I work as a makeup artist and have long dreamed of changing my professional tools and cosmetics. Thanks to payday loan company North Carolina, my dream came true. I think a loan is a good way to fulfill your dreams.
    • As aging, more and more spots will appear on the skin, especially on our face. It’s our nature to pursue beauty that all of us want to make our skin looks clean and spotless, so most of us use a thick foundation to cover the spots.   But if we know where the stains come from, maybe we will not be so anxious. Usually there are two key reasons that cause the spots because the pigmentation of the skin is closely related to the melanocytes in the basal layer of the skin: 1. One is that the melanocytes in the base of the epidermis increase, which will form a nest of melanocytes, such as pigmented nevus; 2. The another is that melanocytes synthesized by melanocytes are increased, such as sun spots, age spots, and chloasma.  What results in melanocytes increasing? Besides it’s genetic, the most important reason is from solarize.   The ingredients that can cause damage to the skin in the sun are well-known ultraviolet rays. Among them, ultraviolet(UVB) can act on the epidermis, which promotes the synthesis of melanin particles in melanocytes, the increase of  melanocytes, and various pigmentation problems.   Therefore, more importantly, the most importantly for us to get rid of the spots on our skin is to do the best sun protection that you can.   What’s more, CARE II believes that there’s a little difference for different skin type, so we’d better to know the skin type first.   There are four basic types of skin: dry, oily, normal and combination skin. Skin type is determined by genetics, though it can be change according to the various internal and external factors.   1. Dry Skin Dry skin feels tight and rough and look dull. The only advantage of dry skin is that it’s not easy to be oily. But mostly you feel the skin is tight and it’s prone to peeling, fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging, because dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences.   2. Oily Skin Oily skin is completely opposite with the dry skin and it has a glossy shine and visible pores. Oily skin is prone to greasy feeling, and it’s prone to problems such as enlarged pores and hemorrhoids because of the heightened sebum production.   3. Neutral Skin or Normal Skin Neutral skin is well balanced, neither too oily nor too dry, which is the best skin condition. Maybe the T-zone is a bit oily, but overall sebum and moisture is balanced and not like oily skin or dry skin.   4. Combination Skin As the name suggests, combination sky consists of a mix of skin types. Skin types vary between the T-zone and the cheeks on combination skin, for example, the T-zone is often oily because of the strong oil secretion, which will result in rough skin, thick pores, acnes, but the cheek skin is relatively dry and delicate compared with the T-zone, and there will be dryness, desquamation and even red blood, stains and wrinkles issues if the skin hasn’t be taken care well.   Now you know what kind of skin type you are, right? Here CARE II wants to clarify the advantages and the disadvantages of the four skin types.   Skin Type Advantages Disadvantages Dry Skin Not oil Fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging Oily Skin Moisturize Enlarged pores, acnes Normal Skin Well balanced Easy to be influenced by seasons Combination Skin The cheek skin is delicate Need to take care separately, the T-zone and the cheeks. If not take care carefully, many skin problems will be caused.   You can take care of your skin by the skin type you are.   Besides the reasons that CARE II mentioned above, there are also other reasons, like make-up dirt, stay up late, lack of sleep.   Some tips for you to get spotless skin: 1) Sun Protection-Shade, sunglasses, clothing and hats provide the best protection     -Try best to avoid the sunshine in the midday     -Check the UV index by your phone, if it’s 3 or above, please do sun protection     -Use sunscreen, at least SPF 30+     -Avoid sunlamps and tanning parlours 2) Cleanse Your Skin Cleanly-Remove the makeup thoroughly     -Cleanse your skin cleanly by CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing brush. 3)  Sleep Early and Sleep Well     - It’s not only for your skin health, but also for your body health, extremely important! 4)  Massage your skin    - You can use CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing massager to massage your skin.   Alright, you’ve already known what skin type you are and known how to take care of your pigmentation skin. That’s cool!  
    • Now astrology is far more advanced than it was but there are still few birth charts which give the explanations of angel 222 number. We usually have to surf other sites to find such important information. Nevertheless, planets and houses are usually mentioned and thanks God, they are easy for understanding
    • Looking for a good girl? I can tell you about my method. Although it was more a search for the bride ... but I like the result))) I decided to visit a dating site when I realized that I couldn't find the one in real life. It turned out that there are a large number of pretty serious girls. It was pleasantly different from the picture of the world that I usually saw. It is not surprising that I got married quickly)
