She talks a lot, it is more of an advertisements for therapeutic yoga, but the stuff she does really helps, or at least it does for me. I memorized what you actually do and do it on my own, except for the part where you fold in half from standing position, that pushes on my diaphragm and makes it hard for me to breathe so I don't do that.

The, sorry it's called 4-7-8 breathing not 4-4-8, helps when I don't have time to do the full yoga and stretch out. I'll be honest my breathing is erratic when I have anxiety so sometimes I can do it and sometimes I can't

I did regular yoga and it helped some but I do go into anxiety with the corps pose.

Glad you got to talk to your counselor.

This may sound silly, but have you ever tried therapeutic yoga? It actually does wonders to calm me down. I don't do the system that goes with yoga, but the movements and breathing actually work for me. If you are interested send me an email and I'll email you the link to the one I use. The lady talks a lot but if you skip to the actual yoga bits, its easy to learn, there are just a few moves, do the ones that help you and leave the rest, and then do them on your own as much as you need to. I was skeptical, but gave it a try.

There is also 4-4-8 breathing, another yoga thing, a bit easier to do, and once you learn it you don't need the video. It's helped me too.

I did talk to my counselor, but my psychiatrist is out of town until the 12th. My counselor will be on maternity leave in December, but there will also be multiple times coming up that we can't see each other since the building will be closed due to Jewish holidays.

I'm sorry you are having such a rough time ONICAM! Have you talked to a psychiatrist or therapist? I've found that a heavy or weighted blanket really helps me to calm down, I know it is not for everyone, just a thought.

I have been majorly panicking lately and need help calming down since I am going off on one person and scaring another since I haven't done this for over a year.

Thank you TOI-TOI-TOI!! I am finally getting some sleep, and doing better. There for a while I was only getting a few hours of sleep a night and it was really wearing on me. I'm still not quite getting enough sleep, but I'm getting more than I was, thank goodness! I am looking at getting a weighted blanket for deep pressure therapy (DPT) because that is supposed to work wonders for PTSD and anxiety. For now we put a doubled over quilt on top of me and I didn't think it would work, but it really relaxes me!

How are you doing, Crouching Flea? I hope you'll give us an update.

My name is Natalie.

I'm not allowed to drive now. I had a series of flashbacks while driving and didn't pull over, didn't think to pull over, just muscled through it to get home. Dumb move. Then I told DH about it. He's working from home for the rest of the week so he can drive me and the kids to all of our appointments this week. We don't even know if I'll be able to drive next week to get the kids from school.

I'm worried, this has never happened before I've never had so many flashbacks all so close together. Well at least I see my psych doc tomorrow and my therapist the next day. I'm still really worried.

I saw my therapist and my DH came with, she didn't think I needed to go in the hospital and suggested I sleep and relax and DH work from home so that I could and he could keep an eye on me. So DH is working from home the rest of the week. I got a lot of sleep during the day, but still can't sleep in the middle of the night. My therapist said do what I had to, even if that meant rearranging my sleep schedule to be partly in the day.

I'm seeing a new psychiatrist on Tuesday, it's in a really busy part of town I've never been to before so DH is taking me. Whew. I'm still really foggy and tired so may take another nap, but then I didn't sleep in the middle of the night again. But I am feeling a little bit better, and I'm happy to be home for my DD's birthday! She's 11 today! We are celebrating on Saturday :)

oh dear, CFLEA....i am sorry you are going thru such a difficult time......i have been in the psych hospital in the past and overall found it helpful......i know you don't want to miss your child's birthday.....i did that once ....but she will forgive you.....and it is better to have a mommy who is happy and functioning.....also, the psych hospital where i was at also has a daytime program, so patients only spend several hours each day there, but go home at night......perhaps that is doable for you...check into it.....i wish you the best, my griend *hugz* emoticon

I'm doing horrible. I called my p-doc's office and he is booked solid for weeks. The clinician wants me to go go the psych hospital because of my symptoms. Um, no, that is what I've been trying to avoid. My DD's birthday is in two days!! PTSD is kicking my tail but I'm not going to let it win! They are going to go ahead and give a note to the doc but they made sure I have someone with me all day (DH is with me) and that I won't be driving myself to my therapy appointment this afternoon (DH is) and I want to see what my therapist says. If she says go, I will, because I trust her more. But I think she is going to agree with me that I don't have to.

I'm a nervous wreck any way and they just made me worse saying I should go in the hospital. I just want to be here for my DD's birthday!

I'm so overwhelmed with all that is going on in my head it is really hard to do anything else. Please pray for me, if you are the praying type, that I can calm down and not go in the hospital.

It sounds like you are having a really stressful, rotten time. I'll be praying for you. I know how stressful, rotten times feel. I don't know the extent of your situation, but can I offer you some advice that I was told when I was going through a severely stressful, rotten time? Don't make any permanent decisions when you are that stressed, especially about your marriage. Like I said, I don't know the extent of your situation, I can only tell you my experience. I was ready to leave, everything felt awful. I was stressed and emotional... but following that advice, we are happily married 7 years later and stronger for having gone through that time. Now I'm not saying that is your situation, I'm just telling you what happened to me.

I know you need to pay your bills, but can you take a few days off to de-stress and move? Hope things will start looking up for you and will pray for you!! emoticon

Feeling lost and helpless...Lost job due to end of seasonal work (happens with warehouse work), so lately I have been working temp work to pay bills. Certain days can be very stressful and on top of that my husband and I are currently moving into a house. We argue day in and day out. It's like his way and only his way and I have to follow with his way or we will fight. I hate this, I hate how I feel. I'm always anxious and depressed. I feel like the end of this marriage has come, and I'm scared because I have haven't been by myself in 13 yrs...oh the stresses!!!

Thanks for listening

I just got out of an 8 day hospital stay. I was upset they made me stay so long, but they deemed it necessary.

How do you get back in the swing of things? I feel so fragile from being in the hospital and am struggling. My anxiety has been pretty high since I got out and I'm having a hard time adjusting. I don't see my psychiatrist till Friday, though I did see my therapist the day after I got out of the hospital.

I'm feeling very lost and like I don't fit into my own life. Have any of you ever felt that way? How do you deal or how do you get rid of that feeling?

I also have the constant feeling that I've forgotten something. That could be one of the new medications I'm on, but I'm not sure.

SAMPAGUITA3 hang in there! You ever read the Hobbit? When they are going through a dark woods the main character climbs the tallest tree and looks around, and all he can see are trees that seem to go on forever and ever, very discouraging. But in reality they were in a low valley, and just needed to go uphill to get out of it and would have been out of the forest! I don't know if that analogy made as much sense out loud as it did in my head, but I hope it did! I'm there with you. Message me any time. Though I may not be around for a few days because...

I'm not doing so well either. Anxiety, depression, PTSD, tell me I'll never get out of this valley. But I know that in reality I will, it just takes time. But I seem to be getting worse. I had a Very Rough Night yesterday and did not need to be alone. My BFF had me come over to her house where I spent most of the day. I still don't need to be alone, I'm worried.... So we go today to see my therapist and psych doc to see if I get hospitalized or can work on it from home. But here it is 6 AM and I'm alone. Just like I was alone most of the night. And I'm with you on the not having very good thoughts.

I'll tell you what my therapist told me. Write those thoughts down. I know it's hard, but give it a try. Then challenge it. For example one of mine was there was nothing good about me. So I challenged it. I'm a good baker, I'm the best Mom I can be, I try to be a good wife and I love my family, etc. Challenge those negative thoughts, even if it is just in your head if you don't feel you can write them down.

Hugs and praying for you,
Karri aka Flea

The anxiety/panic is winning. I had an attack last for over 2 hours yesterday. Read up on it and found it is called an anxiety/panic episode and can last for as long as it wants to. I managed to make it to Best Buy this morning for something I needed for tomorrow. But anxiety has won the rest of the day so far. Tomorrow is my busy day and I don't know how I'm going to manage it. I have to be 'on' all day long. I don't know what to do. I can't cancel. I have an EMG that needs to be done, and several other appointment. I can't cancel. And it's going to put me in the middle of rush hour traffic. I can't do that if I'm having an ongoing panic attack. I don't know what to do or how to handle this. My meds are not touching it, or it they are it is just barely.

Feeling overall lost and scared. Quit my job because of the graveyard hours, not sleeping, feeling more anxious/depressed. Started another job the next day, but scared that I am in over my head. Called in today, think I may be fired. Single mum of three, worrying about everything not doing anything about it. Not able to snap out of my funk of negative thinking. Feeling fat as ever and not motivated at all to go for a walk or do any kind of workout. Thanks for listening. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I just feel lonely today, also alone with my problems. I have a big exam in the end of June and my proffessional life for the next 4-5 years (actually y whole life) will be decided. If i don't get a good mark....ouuuuch. I struggle with handling a job with aroun 70 hours (or more) work hours a week, trying to get myself more fit and trying to balance out my anxiety issues and at the same time prepare for an exam.
Feel like a loser today really

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

Hi all,

I've been really having a tough time for about the past week or so with anxiety. I don't think it's ever been this bad. I just keep getting feelings like something really bad is going to happen or I'm going to die. I keep finding little things about my body and automatically think "it's cancer." I've gone through a lot of medical issues in the past few years. I am back on the road to health and this is currently the biggest issue I have. I've never had anxiety like this before. I am considering talking to my PCP when I get home in three weeks, but what are some things you would suggest I can do until then to calm my mind? I've tried meditation and it's not working so well. I've also been exercising and eating healthy.

Thanks!

That's quite sad. It must be tough, as a mother, seeing your child go through an experience like this.

I would suggest giving him a bit of space to grieve but be there in the perifery so he doesn't feel alone in his grief. The goal isn't to ease or take away his pain, grief is a natural process, but to make sure he's not isolated in his suffering and he is taking care of his basic needs.

I am constipated! emoticon

That's what happens when my anxiety gets out of control. I had a tough exam yesterday and I wanted to do well, so my anxiety levels were quite high for several days leading up to the exam. Intense chronic stress wreaks havoc on our bodies, causing an overproduction of cortisol which damages parts of our nervous system. For me, it also aggravates my psoriasis and makes me constipated ...and being constipated makes me cranky. grrrrrrrrr

I feel so isolate from everyone. Yesterday I cried so hard I puked because everyone in my family has been so focused on my sister that they ignore me, and my boyfriend is horrible at texting me (we're in separate states for the summer) and all of my friends are busy with their internships and jobs so I have been insanely isolated. I feel unloved and alone and unwanted and not good enough. I have had no schedule and will have no schedule for the next month and that makes me so uncomfortable. I just want to hide in my bed forever

I just joined. At the moment, I am so tense that I could scream. It feels like all of my muscles are stretched to the breaking point. I have a child with high-functioning autism. He's 16. Yesterday I took him down to our church building for two days of helping out with our inner-city missions. The day began with two unsuccessful attempts to make waffles. It continued with me rolling up his sleeping bag, TWICE. (The people helping with the inner-city mission work are sleeping at our church building until tomorrow.) I then took him to the building in heavy traffic. I live in the Atlanta area, and heavy traffic is a way of life here. When we got to the building, I discovered that my son had forgotten his toiletries! He wanted us to go back and get them. I said, no, I would get them, you get busy.

I had an appointment with my chiropractor, so I went to him, first stopping on the way to buy shampoo, deodorant, etc. I figured that I would drop everything back at the church building on the way back home, since I was going past there, and that would save me a trip.

My chiropractor said that my neck was out of alignment, which is discouraging. I've been going to him for a year and while there have been periods where my neck has been in alignment, most of the time, it hasn't been.

I dropped off the toiletries on the way back home. By this time, the tension I'd been feeling all morning had just worn me out. So I decided to stop at Burger King on the way back . . . and on the way there, that's when I discovered that my son's toothbrush was still in the car!!

I was exhausted by the time I got back home. Instead of doing anything, I just laid down to try and take a nap.

Dinner last night was a mix of mac and cheese and salmon with two carrots.

The toothbrush was finally delivered last night. I had to leave it in the youth center because the kids were out doing something. I texted a youth leader, letting her know where I'd left the brush.

I'm still tense this morning. My anxiety feels like someone is constantly looking over my shoulder saying, "You missed a spot."

I am so tired of anxiety. It's been taking over my life for years. I feel so isolated from the outside world. i just want to break free so bad. When i go out my blood pressure goes through the roof, i turn bright red and its very scary! it's like i fear everyone and im tired of it. I don't take any meds cause i am very sensitive to medications. I want to feel and live a normal life. I don't want to waste my life away isolated like this. I feel like i live in my own prison, that's why i gained so much weight. I have to lose 100 pounds all cause I eat my feelings away. I try to stay as positive as I can but sometimes i get upset about it.

I really wish I could lose some of this weight !! I have been practically starving myself to not much progress. Of course not eating much isn't helping with doing exercise. I am soooo Frustrated!!!

Two nights ago I tasted the mashed potatoes I was making for my husband and ended up eating a serving; Not on my eating plan. While I was eating it I felt like I was in heaven, how sad emoticon is that........

I wish I could eliminate the stress I feel over a problem I do not have the power to solve, but it directly affects me.

Just applied for another job in my organization that I was asked to apply for. I found out that a former coworker who recently left was asked to wait for the job to be posted before leaving. Apparently, this person was highly recommended by those "upstairs" who were talking about her to the department doing the hiring. I was pretty excited at first, but I'm feeling kind of inadequate right now. Husband says I shouldn't, but I do. I can't help but think that she would have been the first choice.

Feeling overwhelmed, not able to get enough rest and exhaustion is taking over my life. I can't get anything done at home, i go in circles. i have missed two shifts at work this week my depression/anxiety taking over. scared of losing my job b/c i am a single mom of 3 and feel very alone. its hard to get up and start over when all the chaos runs together and i am so exhausted to even care about taking a shower or brushing my teeth, let alone make my bed, wash the dishes do the laundry, clean the living room, clean the kids room, the bathroom or kitchen. it always feels dirty. i dont have a car so the extra clutter, things i would like to get rid off, i can't haul off b/c i have no car. i walk to work and i hate being seen by people looking judging, it's hard to smile anymore. when i get like this, it lasts for maybe a week or two, but this time it is bad. I can't seem to shake it off, i have no energy and the piles are growing. emoticon

I am visiting this venting post way too often! It is the weekend yet I feel stressed to the max. I become paralyzed by anxiety and nothing gets done, increasing my sense of anxiety. I can't even pinpoint a trigger.

I just read Wildxangel's blog. She is a team member who is being abused by her partner. I am feeling anxious and upset after reading her blog. I guess I just never expected to come across abuse on Spark. I hope Spark notifies the police. I hope she is o.k.

As I am new to the group and new to understanding what has been my issue for years, Anxiety. I am not sure how to power through all of this. Some day's are so good I feel that everything is ok, but the next day I want to roll up and sleep my day away. I have been put off work for 6 weeks. I have work there for 10 years and now that there is on "phy" sickness I am not getting the support from them. emoticon

I had a temper tantrum at work yesterday. It felt good, but I was a total idiot and am feeling shame and anxiety at going back today.

I have anxiety about lots of things but what bothers me is when people think that if you have any sort of faith, you shouldn't have any issues relating with anxiety or depression. That's not how it works!! No matter what any of us believe, we don't deserve for our anxiety to be undermined,

Anxious...anxious....anxious. I'm sick of it. Now my cat is sick and I'm really upset because my 14 year old dog died only 5 months ago. There is a small chance my cat has cancer. I keep praying it's just an infection as the vet feels it most likely is. I just feel yuck. I can't handle the thought of losing another pet. This year has not been good so far. Constant headaches, bad sinus infection, break up with boyfriend of over a year, broken hand and sprained knee and now the cat. I just want to cry, but I am afraid I just wouldn't stop. My 3rd year anniversary of my divorce is coming up and that kind of makes me sad too even though I know it's for the best. Can I go to sleep and wake up on Christmas day? J/K
