Anxiety... where did you come from?

Thursday, October 01, 2020

There's no reason I can come up with for it, but my anxiety has been bad for a couple weeks. Meds treat my depression, but the rest of it is just, work your program, take care of yourself, take it easy.......
and lately, it's really kind of bad. I am actually happier at home than I am at work. That's kinda new. I find I don't really want to leave the house, but there are all these responsibilities again and having to "people" and....... I don't want to.
I don't know what it is or why, I just know it is.
Not sleeping well for a while now. I know that adds to it.
Feeling like I'm emotionally on a roller coaster at times.
It's October, our favorite time of year... and I'm sad and miss Sami. I'm grateful for Deni, but I still miss Sami.
idk. Maybe I'll try to go to bed early. Do the self care crap I always gripe about and never do.
Just needed to own the feelings. Have a good one y'all.

    With this pandemic, it’s easy to feel anxiety creeping up. The best one is “take care of yourself, take it easy.” It’s the best remedy for anxiety. Take a deep breath and keep good thoughts going.

    I’m sure you’re missing Sami a lot, and with good reason.

    Self care is the best thing for you right now. Take care and stay safe! emoticon

    I am sorry to hear how hard it is for you right now but I totally understand. In my 70 years on this earth I've raised 5 children, had a long running, very demanding full time job and married my second husband even though his entire family didn't like me - and never once have I felt anxiety. Until fairly recently. I don't want to take medication for it but I did reconnect with my counselor. It makes absolutely no sense to me but for awhile every time I had to leave the house for any reason I was just sick.

    It's finally getting a little bit better. Once my gym reopened I was comfortable meeting with my trainer and doing Pilates on the reformer. I am now up to 3 - 4 times a week getting back to the classes I love. In the best of times I could go weeks without leaving home but apparently now it's really important that I learn to do it more often.

    Oh, and I have found that yoga helps. A nice, slow, easy practice. I wish you well!

    So sorry about your anxiety. Does exercise help reduce it? I try to implement the things that help, and set small achievable goals. I wish you the best on your journey.
