My bones still aren't settled and I am back on terra firma. I may have to go back to Japan the first week of August...I just don't feel safe anymore. My in-laws kept trying to reassure me by saying that you just never know when it's your time, just live your life. How? How do you get past that. I was truly shaken to core of my existence. I had a headache for 2 days and couldn't concentrate. All I could think of was escape routes and if the ground was moving or if it was just my heart beating. I honestly felt close to some kind of hysterical breakdown. Everyone said that it was because it was the first big earthquake I was in and that you get over it. Maybe they are right. I guess that I will have to get past this fear somehow. I can say that I feel better about earthquakes in the country side versus in Tokyo.
