Concert tonight, after a long and stressful day of making many mistakes--some of them quite big-- was at the city-wide choral festival and got caught up in
the swarm of
parents seeking their children
. The stress of wanting to match up the right parent to the right kid and communicate with them, added with the heavy, fast-moving, and angry crowd of adults seeking their children, led me into a downward spiral of severe anxiety. I started to hyperventilate, heart pounding, and I started to cry.
