Slummber Party Anyone?

I've decided to pull an all nighter tonight! Who's with me? I was responding to a discussion about 9/11 and then read another one how this year (well today) it is on a Tuesday, the same as it was that day. Well that was the straw that broke the camel's back and I'm officially freaked out again. It was a very emotional and scary time for me not just on a personal level but a bit deeper than that. Hard to explain, I've always been extra "sensative" to things however unwelcome a so-called gift it is and at the time of 9/11 it's like my senses were on overdrive and I was pretty much fit to be commited on account of sheer insanity. I was such a panicky wreck for such a long time and for the first 2 or 3 anniversaries as well. It hadn't affected me for a long time but all of a sudden the old fears are back and I'm feeling that panic again. I don't want to go to sleep, I don't want to have those dreams again so....... I'm calling it an all nighter! Surely it is daytime somewhere on earth and hey, there's always someone online, lol.

Hey there, gmakesmoney...I'm about to turn in soon, but caught this discussion...yes, I've been a bit freaked out a bit for the past few weeks actually...as I remembered that 9/11 in 2001 was on a Tuesday...primary day then..my mother was one of those who worked as a poll taker helper at the voting place and I was startled when she came home so early--everyone had been ordered to go home early....and we know the reason why...I guess this 9/11 freaks me out all the more cause in the back of my mind I'm wondering...and God knows I'm not wishing it, but this would be the "perfect" time for some sickos to attack us again...the government of course keeps reassuring us that security is better now and we're more on the alert...but hey, what happened six years ago??...why weren't we protected then with all the so-called sophisticated security measures and so called knowledge the FBI and CIA had...

I know, I was thinking that same thing. You know some many sick people really would choose a day that has meaning to do something like that again. I watched a snippet of something on the news where they were saying how we're not as safe as we'd like to be but we are safer than we were then. I was fine tonight but one the clock turned and it's like it was that day all over again. I hate to be so freaked out, I'm in AL for crying out loud, lol, nobody cares about AL I think it's safe. I think I'm more freaked out by the "sensativity" and odd feelings than anything else.

It's interesting that you mentioned "sensitivity"--I've been in a weird mood for the past few weeks...apprehension?? Depressed? I don't know...I think I'm feeling the vibes a lot of people are having especially where I am as I live in the Queens borough section of NYC, so not far from Manhattan...I have one friend who lives a few blocks away from me in a high rise...she didn't have to see what happened on TV that day..all she had to do was look out her window and saw the whole thing right then and there...What I can't understand was that years ago, there was another attack--a terrorist bomb exploded in the deep caverns of the garage area under the one twin tower--like shouldn't this have been a warning then that the twin towers weren't safe from terror attacks? How stupid was this government....I think it was in 1996?? 1998?? Would have to check that..But that was around the time the FBI and CIA was already getting info in about the terroristic plots that were to occur

I know what you mean about being in a weird mood, I feel so stressed and odd. It's like every little sound freaks me out and I'm looking over my shoulder constantly. I hate the power that terrorists have and how it lingers in the air for so long. That makes me feel kinda violated and tortured.
