What kinds of things do they teach in the class, SMIDGON? I've been looking for a good church to go to, but I just haven't found the right one yet. The church I found that I did like was too far to go to every Sunday :P. I have decided that with eating better and getting more active I'm also going to try to read the Bible every day.
I know exactly what you mean, Stephanie. I am 71 yrs. young and I still experience some of the things you are. While everyone is different, I can only tell you what is starting to help me. A couple of weeks ago, I started taking a class called "Making Peace With Your Past".
For me, it is well worth the time. I would keep my eyes open for some where they are offering this. Here, it is our Church.
"All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord, and are called according to His purpose."
Hello, I'm Stephanie and I'm 20. I joined this site because I need motivation to actually get healthy and be active. My parents recently divorced after fighting with each other pretty much my whole life...so, I saw it coming, but they're both kind of driving me crazy right now and there's always so much drama. I lost 50 pounds a while ago, and the stress of everything has caused me to just eat and sit around, so I've gained 20 of it back. I get anxiety talking to new people or doing new things. I'm always afraid I'm going to say something stupid or that I'll just blurt something out or not know what to say. My stomach starts to turn and I get hot and feel like I can't breathe. Sometimes my hand shakes so much I can't even write. I avoid and dread situations where I have to write something in front of someone. I know that I shouldn't let other people effect me so much, and I've gotten better than I was a year ago. I've started to tell myself that I don't have to care so much about what people think about me...if they think I'm stupid,oh well, I probably won't see them again...and that's been working pretty well. I think I'm starting to ramble, but.. I decided to post here to talk to other people with anxiety and find out better ways to deal with it.
