> Those are great suggestions, Racer, and I appreciate them. I don't know how to knit, but maybe I need to learn.

Knitting can be a great, mindless way to spend time. I find having something to do with my hands helps me a lot.

For breathing, that's one thing I guess i do have a "real" trick: I count -- "in-two-three-four/out-two-three-four" and concentrate on where they air is going, aiming at having it get way down to my belly, and out to the sides. That, and making sure I'm keeping my shoulders back and down while I'm breathing really makes a difference for me. I highly recommend it.

For what it's worth, I learned the breathing because I'm a very timid rider, and get scared on horses a lot. So, remembering to breath helps a very great deal, and the consequences of falling apart are usually higher than when I'm having a panic party at home. I swear, cross my heart and -- never mind -- the breathing makes all the difference in the world for me. If you retain any one thing from this post, I hope it's that...

I hope things get better for you today.
