Monika, I am also very anxious today and would like to make some suggestions. Clean your house/room. It takes your mind off your worries for a while. Sort out all of your paperwork into neat piles. Make sure you know what each pile is by writing a post it or just write on the top paper. Bills, medical, social security, etc. Plan ahead and make notes that you want to ask your therapist at the next appointment. Make sure you keep a special diary for this. Also, keep a diary of all appointments of visits you need to make with the exact date, time and day. Make a box next to each and check it off as you complete each task like that special house you go to and keep forgetting to go. Make sure all your plants are watered and spray the leaves. Go for a walk...........walks are very important for the mind and body. Put all of your photographs in order and when possible, buy a photo album and arrange them. If you have a pet, play with him/her as much as possible. They need love. Turn your cell phone off unless you are expecting an urgent call. Read a good book. I like biographies myself. Patrick Swayze and his wife wrote one before he passed away. I am currently reading Psychology and Panic attacks. It's very boring but something to read. Can you knit? crochet? Knit someone you love a scarf. I just knit my grandson one. If you can't knit, Michaels sell 'HOW TO KNIT' books that are great. Also, knitting is very good as a coping skill. Sort out your CD's in alphabetical order and also make sure each CD case has the correct CD in it. Dust is bad. Get a damp cloth and dust all of the furniture. The damp cloth will stop the dust from flying. Have a cup of tea and watch a little TV. Lifetime for woman have some pretty awful movies but I find I can concentrate on these rather than the news. Listen to some music. Does your computer have speakers? Go to PANDORA.COM and you can make your own radio stations for free and listen to lovely music. If not, just listen to the radio. I have many other suggestions but I think that's enough for now. Many hugs to you. Denise
Had a surgery in July. The weight has been creeping up on me since then. Think I was nervous about exercising. Not an excuse. Seriously was worried about damaging myself. Lost 100lbs back in 2009....20lbs back in past 3 1/2 months. Gotta get active....
We are thankful for YOU too, Monika. Take care of yourself, and keep us updated on how you are doing.

We are all here for you. When you are so ridden with anxiety it is hard to do, but see if you can get out for a walk, maybe just around a mall; being around other people, even if you don't interact, can help.
Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.
