I miss you, pillow.

I miss you, pillow.

I’m too tired to blog today so I’m posting this sweet sleepy owl in place of my blathering.  Planning a wedding, trying to graduate, and working with chronic headaches really tuckers me out.

I have been a member of this great site called Influenster for about 6 months. I absolutely love this program. Influenster allows you to take surveys, review products, and interact with others in search of more information about said products. Influenster will select random member to receive VoxBoxes which are filled with new products to test. All they ask is that you review them. They send out some amazing products that will appeal to you best. As I am getting married next year, I receive the Bride-to-Be VoxBox. It was filled with gum, false eyelashes, great shampoo and conditioner, and other fun things. If you do get a chance, please try this great program. You won’t be sorry!

So, everyone is afraid of something. Whether it be heights, spiders, or pickles, there is a little bit of fear in all of us. My fear, which is completely irrational, is labeled as emetophobia.

Emetophobia is the fear of vomit. Whether I am near it or I actually do it, I panic. I have dealt with this since I was a small child and it has varied in severity throughout my life. When I was around 7 years old, I watched a movie with projectile vomit. I believe the movie was called Problem Child 2. I’m not so sure exactly why it bothered me so much. I just know that was where it originated. Vomit always freaked me out but I didn’t have panic attacks and severe anxiety about it until I was about 15. I witnessed another situation in my personal life where I had to deal with it at work. From then on, it debilitated me. For the longest time, I was unable to work, go to school, or hang out with friends without severe anxiety. I had non-stop anxiety and I had to be on medication to function. I used to be more of an outgoing person but it all stopped after that event happened. 

I finally got to a point in my life where I didn’t want my fear to control me. I have pushed myself to travel alone, to go to amusement parks, and to do other things that make me feel uneasy. I miss the careless person I used to be but I won’t let myself miss out on the special things in my life because of a fear that I have.

This is my introductory blog. Hello, I’m Kayla. I tend to be a pretty cool cat. I’m spontaneous, extroverted, and friendly as can be. I love to read, to talk incessantly, and to collect owls of all different medias. I’m getting married in May of 2013, as well as graduating from college. I’m perpetually sassy but a lot of fun. I’m just trying to make it as a person without losing my mind.
