So, I'm in the TWW. It's one of our last cycles trying naturally before we jump to IUI, and I'm feeling really emotional right now. So, what happens today? I get stuck in the elevator at work. It starts doing this terrifying thing where it would drop a floor, and then screech to a halt with this horrible metal on metal grinding noise. It did that three times, and then it got stuck between floors for about 20 minutes.

I FLIPPED out. I became completely hysterical. It's a glass elevator, and the floors of the building are all open to an atrium where the elevator is. So, people started lining up along the edge of the atrium and WATCHING me have a panic attack. I had to call poor DH, and he couldn't even catch my breath to tell him what was wrong. He must have been so terrified.

Anyway, a crew of firefighters finally pried the doors open and pulled me out. I am just so emotionally exhausted. And . . . end rant.

Oh my god! I am glad that you are ok! You have every right to be hysterical! I would have been the same way. Go drink some wine and eat some chocolate! Big hug from me!

That's the stuff nightmares are made of! I'm glad you are okay. Crying and freaking out was completely justified in my opinion.

Expecting our first child in February... Team pink!

Thank you so much for the supportive messages. You all have made me feel much less embarrassed. I'm feeling better today, though I just had to take the elevators back up (I work on the 12th floor) and my heart started racing a bit. Looking forward to a relaxing weekend!

I'm so sorry that happened to you. I hope that you are feeling better now. I think any reasonable person would have panicked if they got stuck in an elevator. I know I would have. *HUGS*

P.S. - I just need to ask - were the firefighters hot??

Holy crap. I would have been terrified! I very rarely use lifts for that exact reason unless I absolutely have to. You poor thing. I would be complaining to your employer and making sure they get it sorted. Hope you're ok, you were brave getting back on it

Lol, one of the firefighters was pretty hot. He was the first one I saw when the doors opened. I was so eager to get out of there that I basically just leapt into his arms right away! Very strong
