Helen BS: NSW, Oz - lockdown ends 11 Oct 2021 (39) RE: BS: NSW, Oz - lockdown ends 11 Oct 2021 15 Oct 21

Donuel, I think it would be a documentary not fictional. This is real life. :-D

My thoughts are tending towards the vague theory that everyone has been suffering anxiety and panic while in lockdown and we all expected to feel a sense of relief and freedom, but then the release is overwhelming and it freezes our brains. Like post-adrenalin reaction. Adrenalin kicks in to save our lives, fight or flight, but when it is all over and we are safe the body reacts to that shot of adrenalin by shutting down.

I've told this story before, but I remember seeing TV footage of a young girl who was stuck up to her chest in a mudslide and rescuers worked for hours and finally pulled her free. As soon as she was free, she suffered a heart attack and died. She had calmly endured the whole event but died when it was all over. One theory proposed, as I recall, was that while she was in the mud there was immense pressure on her heart, and when she was freed the pressure was suddenly released and her heart began racing. I always wondered whether the sudden joy of her release after her long ordeal also added to her physical trauma.

Mrrzy, here is another article about Tassie (pronounced Tazzie - like Aussie is pronounced Auzzie - go figure)

Half of Tasmania shuts down due to 'difficult' COVID quarantine breacher
