Anxiety Peace We

I should point out that staggerlee’s fantasmic Christmas rant belongs to staggerlee. Despite my keen desire to attribute her artful, mellifluous Wal-Mart kick in the nuts to myself, I cannot take credit for it.

I also can’t follow that act. But I will try, with an insane lighter.

My dad got this as a gift from his brother, and handed it off to me in pure bafflement. As my brother-in-law points out, you really need an mpeg to do this thing justice because 1) when you flip the top, the bombs flash red and the impact flashes blue, and 2) the flame itself burns bright green.

The sticker on the side says “Made in Viet Nam,” which increases the irony or poignancy factor depending on how you interpret “Anxiety Peace We.”

Any explanation is greatly desired.

  1. The occurrence of anxiety disorder is related to panic attacks and it is usually brief, although the sufferer may feel that they last forever. From an emotional perspective, panic attack symptoms may include feelings of intense fear, an overwhelming sense of doom, being out of control, or a sense of unreality. The sufferer’s thoughts may race and jump about, without any logic or consistency.

    Physical symptoms of panic attack may include some or all of the following sensations:

    * Racing or pounding heart; palpitations
    * Difficulty breathing or tightness in the chest
    * Shallow, rapid breathing
    * A choking feeling
    * Severe trembling or shaking
    * A rapid pulse rate
    * Sweating
    * A brief body temperature rise
    * Chest pain
    * Dizziness or light-headedness
    * Nausea
    * Fear of losing control
    * Tingling or numbness in the extremities
    * A feeling of not being physically anchored.

    Panic attacks may leave the person feeling utterly exhausted afterward. This may be caused by the flood of adrenaline and other stress hormones released when the panic attack starts. These “fight or flight” hormones cause an enormous output of the body’s energy resources. When the attack is over, exhaustion ensues as the body tries to recover.

    Many people who experience symptoms of panic attack initially think they are having a heart attack. They may run to an emergency room or call an ambulance, only to be told no physical ailments have caused the intense feelings, sensations and other symptoms. Over time, the sufferer may feel as if he or she is losing his or her mind.
