So today I did something that I didn’t think I could do. I have had a phobia of movie theaters, for reasons I cannot fully explain. I went and saw Shazam (opening weekend) in the movie theater. That’s right I went to the movies. My boyfriend and I got up and wanted to go to lunch and a movie. I looked up online and there was a dine in movie theater not far from us. So we went! It was a 2 for 1! I have to tell you if you have a dine in theater near you it is so worth it! The seats are electric recliners and so comfortable. You get a tray and a server. It really is the way to go! My hands were clammy and trembling the whole drive to the theater. I was thinking of the ways to get out of it but fought with myself on it because I really did want to go. We got the movies and I felt a little better after I sat down for a minute and took in my surroundings. We ordered our food which was so tasty we got brisket fries, I got a burger and my boyfriend got a steak & shrimp bowl. I let my food settle for about 45 minutes and decided I wanted something sweet. I ordered an Oreo milkshake. I drank it so fast. It was so good, it had the perfect amount of Oreos! About 10 minutes later my stomach starts to rumble. I ran to the bathroom. I got sick. I was fighting back a panic attack. My biggest fear was happening I am in a public bathroom, sick, and far away from home so I had to use the restroom there. I immediately wanted to leave I was so worked up. My hands were trembling and I had thoughts racing through my head. Instead I decided to sit in the bathroom for about 5 minutes longer and breathe. I went back into the theater and my boyfriend asked me if I was okay. I wanted to scream out, “I want to leave. NOW!” but I didn’t I told him my stomach was upset but I was okay. I was determined to stay to the end of the movie. I didn’t want to be defeated and I wasn’t! I stayed all the way to the end of the movie. Yes, it was kind of a hard 30 minutes but I have lived through worse 30 minutes. When I walked out of the theater I was so relieved but also so proud. I did something I never thought I would do again. With that being said I don’t think I will start going to the movies all the time but the next time I do I will hopefully be less anxious about it! Also go see Shazam, it was great!
