Seems like my anxiety is bad today. I am trying to rest when I can but I have 2 small children that need me. I think it's my anxiety mostly making me tired and just like a fatigue woozy feeling. I just really want to be normal again. My anxiety is definitely brought on when I have odd occurrences that are not normal for me. I just so want to be back to myself again...what are some things y'all do to help...thanks

hi landres...im sorry your having bad anxiety today :( i havent felt good since thanksgiving. i think i work myself up for big family functions like that and it seems after its over my anxiety still lingers around for several days. my anxiety affects me a little different from yours. you feel tired and woozy, i get the dizziness but my anxiety goes more towards the panic mode. heart racing, short of breath, sick to my stomach...ect. WHAT IS NORMAL?? i use to say that to myself all the time, why cant i just be normal? i feel like this is our NEW NORMAL :( we just have to learn how to manage it. whether it be with medication, deep breathing, counseling or just distracting ourselves with things at home. you have 2 small children, i cant think of a better distraction. focus everything you have into them when you feel anxious. play games with them, watch movies...anything to take your mind off your symptoms. i dont know if my advise helps you but know, your not alone in your struggles. many people are here to offer some good advise. good luck...hope you get feeling better.

I'm dealing with pretty bad anxiety right now too. I'm trying to distract myself but it's hard. I get tired and dizzy and heart palps when my anxiety gets bad and honestly right now all I want to do is lay on the couch and feel sorry for myself but I know I'm not going to get better doing that so I am trying to be more active and eat better. Funny thing is when I'm at work I rarely notice my anxiety because I'm so busy. I had my mom come over earlier and show me how to embroidery so maybe that can keep my mind busy. I've also been reading a new book about anxiety called calm my anxious heart, and I've been watching anxiety guy videos on YouTube
I feel like just like any other disease, the more you know, the less scary it becomes and the more in control you feel.

thats a great way to look at it :) i wish i could be more positive. i keep hearing how people get so tired with there anxiety...geesh! i wish. i am up all night sometimes becuz my heart is racing, my thoughts are going crazy...i just cant sleep. i even take xanax and sleeping pills. it doesnt work. ive always tried to work...ive been able to hold down part time jobs but never for very long. my anxiety and panic gets too bad and i either quit or get fired becuz of too many days missed :( its not fun! i just wish that our goverment or state laws would see this as a DISABILITY and not have to go thru a whole process to ttry and get it if you need it. what they may feel is managable, to the people that actually have it, may not be :(
