IN THE PRESENT MOMENT.

If you are reading this, don't give a lot of thought to it but how do you feel.... don't give it a lot of thought but how do you feel right at this moment??
At this moment, I feel GREAT. NO ANXIETY IN SITE. I am listening to music. I am still tensed up but nevertheless, I feel great at the present moment. Do what makes anxiety take a back seat. If you don't know how yet, you will get there. Try to live in the present moment...not in the past, not in the future but the PRESENT!!!. Not easy but WELL WORTH IT!!!

A bit run down from this cold, but I'm on the tail end of it. Had a very productive day so far. Cleaned the interior of both of our vehicles, it's a very nice day outside.

I am feeling so anxious today. Feel like I’m guna break down again. Last time was 3mths ago. I’ve been ignoring a problem I’m not ready to face and I think it’s coming to the surface again. Due to start with my therapist Thursday but I’m scared I will break before then. I just want to cry but I can’t because no one knows what’s wrong with me, I have to get the school run done. I hate what this is doing to me.

It’s ok to cry sometimes! Don’t ever feel like you need to hold it in all of the time! If you need to release it by crying it’s a lot healthier than allowing it to build up in you! Never be ashamed or feel like you shouldn’t get your emotions out! Crying is healthy!!!
I was stressed today and after finally going a week with great sleep after two weeks of continuously crying and convincing myself of having a numerological disease and not sleeping...I am anxious again not so much about my health just had a rough day and I guess it is going into the night. Frustrating very frustrating

I never cry. I can’t break down right now. My kids would be so worried. Range from 2-17. Think I will call the Samaritans when I’ve done school run. They were amazing last time.

I have a two year old, I understand, I think she saw her mommy cry enough the last two weeks(which i felt horrible about). Hearing your toddler say “mommy it’s ok” is heartbreaking. I should be taking care of her! Being a mom definitely makes holding things in a little harder! Are you having trouble sleeping? Did something trigger you?

I think my littles would just hug me. It’s my big ones I worry about. They are old enough to see I’m not ok so I don’t want to send them off to school and college worrying about me. Yes I’ve realised something yesterday and it’s deffo triggered it. Not helped by having a slight hangover yesterday, anxiety massively plays up while I’m hungover. Thought by just having a few I would be ok but looks like I will have to avoid alcohol now, which is fine by me lol! Sorry that you have been so sad recently, I’ve never just cried and cried. But it’s good that you show ur emotions, they learn from us don’t they and mine never see me upset. Prob not healthy for them to never see me cry. So used to burying every emotion, even happiness hoping therapist can help me. Have u ever seen one?

Oh and no trouble sleeping. That’s the one thing that doesn’t effect me. But I wake up anxious everyday. And I got to bed overthinking every night.

Yea I just started actually seeing someone, was diagnosed with severe OCD which I honestly did not ever think of for myself, I thought maybe bipolar one or severe panic disorder even hypochondria ! But it explains why I overthink/obsess about everything so in a way is helping me pin point some things and work them out, or at least try to begin working them out.

That’s good, at least you know what your dealing with now. You can start to learn how to control it instead of allowing it to control u. I think A bad time in my life 9yrs ago triggered mine and it’s gradually got worse until I finally snapped 3mths ago. I’ve just been floating ever since because I’m too afraid to deal with it. It’s exhausting.

That’s what I’m back tracking on now, pin pointing where this could of stemmed from, it went from random panic attacks to convincing myself I had MS and collapsing over it to now just rationalizing and taking steps to understand my triggers. Definitely still in that young phase where my fiancé and I fight over some very immature crap that I know needs to stop for overall health reasons! Is there anyway you can try and see someone sooner?

Yes it had to of started somewhere! And you’re taking the steps to find out now so it can only be a positive thing. Good on you for being brave. No I can’t see her till then but it will be weekly after that so I will be ok. My anxiety is worse In the mornings for some reason. Starting to calm down a little now, walking the school run will give me some fresh air and exercise. Have u tried CBT? I found it really helpful.

Have you explained to the oldest about your anxiety and some days you may not feel your best? I think it helps a lot when we talk with our children.. they may understand better than we think. Them not knowing is what makes it hard for them. I was guilty of that as well. But my kids are now all grown out of the house. But when my anxiety was at its worst, my hubby took me to the ER a few times so he knows I have anxiety from time to time but its a LOT better now. It's not so bad that I have to inform him because I have learned to cope with it.

Yes my oldest ones know when I’m feeling fragile. I would just never break down in front of them. I think it’s too much for them to see. My first proper session with therapist this week so feeling hopeful I can sort all this out.

i feel with my hands!

sorry. bad dad joke.

my anxiety was actually pretty heightened last night due to some crazy cramping in my upper-left side that seemed to radiate to the back. it wasn't constant - would come and go and seemed to be at least somewhat positional but, man, was the pain intense. i actually almost went to the ER which is something i have never done due to my health anxiety (i've gone to urgent care several times, though.) anyway... i'm still holding on to a little bit of residual anxiety due to that, though i'm trying remind myself that today i'm ok and that if it was anything serious, it probably wouldn't have just gone away.

Obsessing somewhat about job and career issues that are out of my control at this time. I need to let God be God and not try to control and plan everything. Work in progress.

Thank you, it was good. It’s above a cute cafe so I grabbed a hot chocolate and they are the loveliest people who run it. Knowing I’m seeing her weekly now is comforting. I know I will find the strength to change my life now.
Try not to think too far ahead, maybe think weekly goals. What you can do this week that is within your control to work towards your career? If there isn’t anything, could you focus on something else? Something small, like making sure you drink a glass of water when u wake up? Getting your 10k steps in per day? Having 30 mins downtime each evening doing something that you enjoy. Give yourself something else to think about. Whatever will be will be
