More Stress Calming: Shahrukh Smoking

Smoking is injurious to health and bad and wrong and so on and so forth. But OMG is it sexy. And inspirational for those of us who are a little afraid of disagreeing with doctors.

I have now convinced myself that I am going to fail the blood pressure test tomorrow and they will cancel my surgery and I will be crippled for life. You know why I fail blood pressure tests? Because I am convinced I will fail blood pressure tests and that raises my blood pressure to, like, panic attack levels. And then I take it at home and I am FINE!

Anyway, in this brief moment when there is still a chance I will get the surgery, before tomorrow when it will inevitably be canceled because my life sucks, I am going to distract myself with SRK smoking pictures. See how brave and tough and strong he is! I go to the doctor and get bullied and scared, Shahrukh goes to the doctor and doesn’t even listen when they tell him to stop smoking! I need to be tough like that and less polite and respectful and accommodating.

Okay, next time I go to a doctor, I am going to say “I don’t think I have high blood pressure, but I think I might need an anti-anxiety prescription. No, I am going to say “I KNOW I don’t have high blood pressure, and I KNOW I need an anti-anxiety prescription.” Right? Nothing to be afraid of, if they say “no”, it’s just more money and time to find another doctor who will say “yes”.

  1. I am so sorry that you’re suffering like this, although loving the smokin’ hot pics here! Have you ever tried breathing exercises or short simple meditation to reduce the anxiety? I am not a meditation person myself generally but I’ve been doing some during these coronavirus times and because I am anxious about certain people and things in life. It’s just worse these days. Anyway I’ve found it to be surprisingly helpful. Here’s a good, easy, free introduction: https://www.uclahealth.org/marc/mindful-meditations

    • Glad you are loving the hot pictures!

      I really should meditate, I know for anxiety it is one of those things where you do it every day and notice a long term benefit, but it’s hard when I only get anxiety attacks once a month or so. Why spend all that energy the other 30 days?

  2. Not everyone is comfortable with the idea of medical marijuana but it is something people who I know have tried and it worked for them.

    • Huh, that’s interesting. There’s a new dispensary in my neighborhood, so it would be easy for me. Of course, I still have to be brave and talk to a doctor and force them to help me.

      Thank you!

  3. Oh Margaret, fear can be such an energy-stopper…and being attacked by anxiety does definitely need an easy and always available counter-reaction.
    What about breathing (not meditation)…just concentrate to get your breathing into a rhythm that puts a barrier to the attacking forces…you could even think “Shah” by breathing in and “Rukh” by breathing out (stretching it more and more)…and thinking of him (your brain can’t concentrate on two things at the same time).
    Wish you all the best…

    • Thank you! Ugh, I hate my anxiety tail spins. I either need a guaranteed ten minute behavorial fix, or medication. Because right now I can pull out of them with breathing and distractions and talking to loved ones and being in a place I feel safe and so on, but it takes like 8 hours. I can’t keep giving up 8 hours of my life to come down from an anxiety attack with no warning!
