I was at a presentation tonight for teachers. In the middle of the presentation, the presenter starts to give an example about our senses and chooses smelling smoke and a fire in the house as her example. This was a small group of teachers, all who knew my story, and I felt like maybe this presenter should have known better.

As soon as she said "smell smoke," my heart started racing. I actually plugged my ears because I was so stressed out about thinking about this imaginary fire and running out of the house. It is amazing to me that just the word caused such a reaction.


  1. It sounds like a perfectly normal reaction considering all you've been through lately.

  2. Wow, that must have been hard, especially because you weren't at all expecting to have such feelings there. I'm so sorry.
