Fireworks panic

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Tonight my town had a big fireworks display. We were going to watch it from the roof of one of the buildings close to the set off point. Sounds like fun, right?

What I didn't realize was that to get to the roo of the 5 or 6 floor building, we had to crawl from one building to another. Through a small window, across about 3 empty feet of nothing but air all the way to the ground.

I am not afraid of much, and I am fairly strong. I panicked. I could not even lift myself out of the window to try to get across the chasm. I lost every ounce of strength in me, and I thought my heart would leap out of my chest.

I apologized profusely to my friends and fiance. Now he is acting like I should be in a leper colony. He walked home, about 8 to 10 blocks, and got upset when I tried to talk to him about it.

I know physically I could have done it, but mentally no way. And somehow I am the bad guy in this. I am really angry and upset. I was still shaking when I got home, 15 minutes after refusing to crawl out the window. We could have watched the fireworks from the ground, but noooo, someone has to sulk about it like a child.

I am very disappointed in him right now, he is usually a kind and sensitive guy. I mean, he loves the cats as much as I do, and cried as much as I did when we had one of them put to sleep a few months ago. Anyway, I just wanted to vent. Actually, a good cry would do me good, too. I think he thinks that I don't trust him to watch out for me, but it's not that. It was panic, pure and simple.

Bren I would of been terrified! With no net of safety and no margin for error I would of been right with you in panicville!

I am sorry your man is acting so immature. You would think he would of been concerned for your panic attack and not bent out of shape for you spoiling his fun. Sometimes it is just best to let the guy be while he works it out in his head and give him those subtle signs us gals are so known for that your feelings have really been hurt by this. Hopefully peace will come before the sun comes up in the morning.

Don't feel bad! I wouldn't have done it either!!! Geesh...he has no reason to be mad about it, it's not like you were doing it just to be a pain in the butt or something, you were afraid, and rightly so! One little slip, and no more fireworks ever.
