I thought it would be a good idea to open a thread for everyone’s daily ranting.

Well I will just start:
Just recently I started a new job, in June actually. As it is with all new things for me, it makes me more anxious and stressed, then when I’m already established in the job. Then come my three days annual leave. On the day of my annual leave starting, I got the notice that my partner and I had to move within the next two months out of our flat. The landlord wanted to sell the flat. Then my mom was visiting and every day was just total power and total activity with no time to relax and regain energy. On my first day back to work, I was so anxious, that I was shivering and could not focus at all. I had to request one day sick leave. Funny thing though on the day before, my new manager started. So she met me for the first time when I just came back from annual leave requesting sick leave for the day. Nice start really. The whole following week was just an anxiety rollercoaster. Since then I have the feeling that my new manager, does not like me and thinks that I am stupid and don’t belong in my job.

Well that’s me that’s my rant for the day. How are you doing? What’s doing on today that you want to share and let the steam out?

I too just started a new job in June, got my anxiety under control with Paxil. Had to up my dose due to increased anxiety and that made it increase tenfold. Went to doctor to had my Paxil changed to lexapro which had me in bed for four days three of which I had to call out of work and I'm still in my probationary period. Had to go back to work today and was so anxious most of the day I felt like my insides were vibrating 90% of the day. And to top it all off my central air died last night. Luckily we have window units in a storage unit from when my bf and I moved in together. Not to mention my house including my central air is only five years old. When it rains it pours!!!

I too just started a new job...end of May, and...it’s a work from home which you’d think would lessen the anxiety which I suppose it does. Then outta nowhere BAM...a panic attack! Can’t wait to be on the other side of these!! I have health anxiety and I’m always in fear of terminal illness...Paxil seems to be helping some tho

Mainly I'm just kind of bored. Thankful that I'm feeling pretty decent today. I don't like how dark my mom has it in the house but it is hot outside so oh well. I tried to go outside for a bit. It got to be too hot. So pretty though

for the past month and a half i have been experiencing sensations in my head such as burning, numbness, electric shocks, and prickling its scaring me to death! its there 24/7 and everything i do doesnt seem to give me relief. ive been to the hospital and al my test have come up clear but something and everyone thinks its anxiety but i have never personally met someone with these types of symtoms. i cant even relax because the pain in my head is so intense. i just want my life back i just want my head to stop burning and tingling. I wish i could just be okay.

Today was an ok day. The only thing that always bothers me in the hot summer times is the sweating. I always get self conscious about my body smell. Therefore I’m using more perfume, and then I’m conscious about too much perfume. Petty I know, but that’s bothering me today.

How is it going with you?

What's bothering me today is how darn tired I am. I've been sleeping since yesterday morning. I wonder if my quitting caffeine is part of it. I just feel physically heavy and I'm frustrated that everything is so hard for me. Today and yesterday I'm just really slacking and I don't know what to do to get my energy up. I know I probably should go for a walk, for example, but I'm just not interested.

Anyway.... hoping this evening goes better. I did take some anxiety meds so we will see

Being disconnected from myself and my family. Feeling like I'm wasting a beautiful Saturday 'working on my body symptoms.' feeling exhausted and spaced out. Physical pain from muscle tension. I have been here before and I know it gets better, but I'm angry at all of this today.

I feel your pain on that, I mean as much as I try to to fight I my whole body starts to shiver sometimes when I get nervous and stuff. My main problem though is that, I make a mistake I automatically assume the worse you know and I hate that, especially when I make a mistake,y mind branches out into the worst possible scenarios when so clearly have no evidence to prove it and so funny that I think about the same problem everyday sometimes. However whatever hurts us mentally physically or MENTALLY, only makes us stronger.

Worrying about money. I've developed a fear of our mailbox/PO. box. That's the primary source of bad news. (bills, nastygrams, people demanding money) Both my mom and I are currently unemployed and we have very little income. We're currently relying on family for help. Our counselor has advised us to hold off on finding employment until we get our heads on straight. It's kind of a feedback loop. We can't seek employment because of our mental states and part of our mental issues it unemployment. But our counselors are providing us with valuable resources in this difficult time.

We're in the middle of selling our house which has been a difficult and time consuming process. This has been the primary source of my anxiety since my anxiety began. When we finally close on our house (which our title agent said should be mid August) I feel a humongous weight will eliminated. But until then I can't seem to rid my mind of the overthinking and the "what if something goes horribly wrong". Every now and then the rational part of my mind kicks in and inventories the facts but most of the time I'm dealing with the irrational part that's contemplating what could go wrong and of course my anxiety level goes nuts. I've read from some sources this is called "monkey mind". My mind is just a psychological battleground right now. The rational vs irrational.

I have hope that we can get control of our minds if we just take it day by day. There's nothing stronger than our will to overcome something. However when you think about, we're trying to overcome something that which we created, which doesn't exist so what are we afraid of in the first place.

A chance to bitch!....

So work has been insane for 4 months, including having to fire a friend, who was behaving poorly, a major piece of new regulation that had me being interviewed on TV and radio, plus a bunch of the usual pressures.

In the middle of that I started working with a new psychologist, and dove into a pile of painful things that I have waited too long to resolve.

As a result I spent the first two weeks of a three week vacation crushing under anxiety. The last week was awesome though... I relaxed completely and had a week of inner peace.

Today I returned to the office. Wish me luck holding on to that calm.

You've got this Rogdog, your cognitive thinking pattern is starting to change, but if the anxiety comes back just, just let it flow, it's your own body reacting to how you used to feel, which is dumb, but it doesn't know any better you know, that's why it follows the mind, your brain. Replace that old anxiety with a nice thought on the production line because right now the line is closed, waiting to be reopen to the horrible product that keeps you on edge, so it's about you starting putting out the funny and pleasant thoughts to break the old habits and before you know it Rogdog, your body will getting all tensed up with anxiety.
