How do you deal with irritability during anxiety? When anxiety encroaches, I want to be alone and in silence. Sometimes I can retreat to that sanctuary, but often I don't immediately have that latitude. What tips do you have for getting through it?

Of course it's best to get away if you need to, but we can't always do that, huh? In that case, I just take some deep breaths, and I try to think more thoroughly when speaking to someone while irritable due to anxiety. I don't want to lash out at anyone for something that isn't their fault. Just do your best to keep a clear head.

Clear your head, watch some comedy show, try not to overthink. That's what I usually do.

I’m actually struggling with this tonight. I have had to tell myself that it’s ok to take a step back and MAKE space for myself, wherever I possibly can. Had to walk away from my child tonight because he was having an angry outburst and I just couldn’t handle it. He will be ok. When that’s not possible (like if you have to be at work), practice deep breathing at regular intervals throughout the day - set a watch alarm or something to make yourself do it every 30 minutes. And look for ways to give yourself ‘alone time’ without actually being alone. I work in an office with an open floor plan, so today I wore headphones when I wasn’t working directly with other people.

Just knowing that when I feel anxious, depressed, and irritable, the unpleasant mood will be just temporary and that me feeling better will return.

Lmao i had anxiety for 33 years and it was bad it was in my stomach, chest, underneath my feet and it included inability to focus, think straight, irritability, mood swings, anger tantrums and general discomfort. I was cured after 33 years of suffering within seconds by the Holy Spirit. Get down on your knees and cry out to Jesus Christ from your heart with remorse and please and beg the Lord almighty to heal your anxiety my anxiety is gone forever and i have never felt this good. You don't need human doctors or medications. AND YES MY TESTIMONY IS REAL THAT'S WHY I MADE AN ACCOUNT HERE TO LET THOSE OF YOU ON HERE KNOW HOW TO GET RID OF IT IF YOU ARE SUFFERING. PRAY TO THE HOLY SPIRIT WITH REMORSE AND ASK HIM TO CLEANSE YOU OF YOUR ANXIETY/DEPRESSION/MENTAL ILLNESS.

I tend to feel more irritated when I'm depressed. I'm usually not irritable when I'm nervous.

Go to Doctor Jesus in prayer with tears remorse and mean it from the heart and plead the Lord to please please heal you of your illness. I was in pain and tears and i couldn't bear it anymore and he healed me within seconds i was painless after the prayer and I am still pain free. That is a miracle from above not human doctors and medication.

I pop in my earbuds and crank the music as loud as possible. Really the only thing getting me thru work these days.
