I’m about to leave to watch the fireworks 45 minutes away from home.

I’m nervous that I’ll have a bad reaction (flashbacks would be the worst, anxiety or panic attacks) & will have nowhere to go to escape.

Should I not go?

any advice for grounding techniques so that I can go?

What would/are YOU doing?

I stay in my house where the sound is muffled. Makes it so I’m not so jumpy. Knowing they’ll last for 2 hours or so I try to submerge myself in something else. I also have a dog who hates the fireworks so staying calm helps her to stay calm.
