Hi- I read your post about feeling depressed: " I've been struggling with anxiety/panic off an on for the past few weeks, irrational fears creep into my mind and worse case scenarios. I'm tired of internally battling myself trying to talk myself down from things i cant control. Today i hope to get through the day and actually believe myself when i tell myself i'm much stronger than i give myself credit for"
I too suffer from extreme anxiety, especially since my oldest child died a few years ago. I worry constantly about my other children. I wanted to share a thought with you that has been very helpful to me;
Although your feelings are real, they are not always the truth.
I had to think about that for awhile, it really does help me, especially when my brain chemistry is shooting off worst case scenarios and stirring up my fears. I wish you the very best.
