I got the call last night. My father isn't doing well. They want me to go see him before it's too late. Taking an emergency trip to Florida to say goodbye. I know it's bad logically. I just can't reach it emotionally. Right now I'm just going with the flow. I almost cried when I talked to my mother last night. Same as when my sister called. Right now I'm fine. I know it's going to hit me hard, when it hits.

I have run something past my boss where I work and still am waiting for a reply..

What do you think?

As I am obsessed with mocktails, (non-alcoholic cocktails), why not have a mocktail of the week at the cafe? They would sell like hotcakes.

For example, virgin whiskey:

half root beer
half mountain dew

Tastes just like the real thing!

Ingredients are inexpensive.

Yes? No?

Thank you in advance!

I d not know about you, but I need a little "retail therapy" for motivation. Earlier, the roommates and I went shopping at a local store's clearance sale. I bought 2 cute outfits for $6.10 with tax. Woo Hoo!

My DD has to have her pancreas and spleen out. That wasn't enough now she had a scan yesterday and they found out she has esophagus and stomach cancer. She is my only child left, who calls me every day more than once a day. I'm seeing my phycologist this afternoon. Can't lose her too... emoticon

Anxiety is high today. I'm worried about my daughter who lives in Poland. She's having troubles in her marriage and is having a family "meeting" today with their priest. Talking about a temporary separation. Her husband has been verbally abusive to her and their children. It's like he's going though a mental breakdown.
I hate that she is so far away and there's nothing we can do to help her.

Used my CBD oils and my essential oils. The sun is out but it's still pretty cold (only 18 degrees) so I can't get a mind clearing walk in just yet. I may have to meditate. I haven't done that in a while. Mind is racing so it might be difficult. Prayers appreciated for me and my daughters family.

My anxiety is up a little bit tonight, started off with my car breaking down. Which we were fine and made it home it just took forever. My husband has been off work for three weeks because of surgery he has a doctors appointment Wednesday, not sure how I’m going to get him there. Need to figure out how to get the vehicle fixed, all I know what to do is pray and I took a hot shower.

KARRI, thanks for asking about me. I was doing well until last night and this morning. Anxiety and depression are affecting me quite a bit. I think it's a combination of the news about the pandemic getting worse, the vaccinations going so slowly, and my daughter having a meltdown last night. She cried because she doesn't know what's going to happen to her when we're gone and she's afraid we'll be disappointed in her. Even though she has a college degree and works very hard, she doesn't make a living wage and there's no way she can make it on her own. She has no real friends, has never even had a date, and suffers with anxiety disorders and depression herself. I guess she's afraid we'll die of Covid or one of our other conditions and she'll be alone and not able to survive on her small salary.
*I'm sorry to hear you're having surgery in two weeks . I have a Spark friend on another team who has passed two or three kidney stones in the past 6 weeks. Once, she sat in the bathtub with hot/warm water for hours and it finally passed. She's trying to eliminate things from her diet that might make it worse. I'm very sorry you were sick and now have this to deal with. I hope all goes very well with your surgery and recovery. Big Hugs.

LAURA, I wish you well on getting out of the house more. emoticon


As far as my goals for the year, I'm going back to basics. Tracking nutrition, staying in my calorie allotment and exercising at least 10 minutes a day.

Wishing everyone the best.

I've hovering right on the edge but doing ok. It's like it's right there in the background but not all the way there. I got some CBD drops that you suggested but haven't needed them yet. Hubby is back to work tomorrow for the week. He's had a couple of short weeks and has been home more. He tends to keep me centered and grounded so I'm hoping I stay stable once he's back to a normal schedule.

I put in my own personal spark streaks to not be a hermit. My goal is 5 days a week. Even if it's just getting out on the yard for 20 minutes. I need to just get out of the house. It's going to be hard since it's winter, cold, and snowy where I live but that's what snow boots and winter hats are made for.

I feel for you on the kidney stones. They are awful. I've had them 3 times and pray I never have them again....worse pain ever! Prayers coming your way.

Thanks for sharing the article, Laura, it was a good one, and much needed at this time of year. I am with you on the goals to try to get out of the house a little more, but anxiety seems to be a little higher now, after quarantining for most of December. I don't think we had covid, just a chest cold, but we still had to be cautious.

Miller, how are you doing?

I hope the new year is kinder to us all. I've set my goals, I don't normally do resolutions, but I've had so much down time with being sick and having a big kidney stone (surgery in two weeks!) that I found myself having the time to reflect and work on my goals, so I took advantage of that.

I've been doing ok. I'm trying to get out of the house more. Sometimes it's hard and I get a little anxious but I push through it. I'm just doing small things like running to the store for a couple of things or to the post office. Better than nothing I guess.

My road is all snowy and icy so I can't get out for walks which is what I really like to do for my get out of the house goal.

Just wanted to pop in and say hello and see how everyone is doing. I hope well, but I know it can be a stressful time of year. I'm dealing with a kidney stone and other possible problems with my kidneys. Not fun. And I'm behind because of ER trips and meds and pain on my Christmas present making, not that Christmas is my deadline any more. We are all but one sick, so we are not going to our family's house on Christmas day as usual. Don't know for sure what it is, so don't want to get anyone sick. Just in case.

It's sad the amount of people that actually fall for these scams. Another one is real businesses and government agencies don't ask for payment in the form of gift cards.

This is one of the reasons I never answer the phone if I don't recognize the number.

Good catch! I got a similar call from a recorded message saying there had been something fraudulent and my SSN had been suspended, press one to transfer to the social security administration... they caught me at just the right moment where I was like emoticon But then I remembered that they can't/don't do that to your SSN, so I pressed one anyway and sure enough they answered, "Social security administration this is a secure line, can I get your name and date of birth?" I hung up. I was so mad. Think of the people they catch off guard with that! Or the people that just don't know that they don't do that.

I got a call today from someone claiming to be with Social Security. He didn't give me his name. He called from suburban Detroit and told me I had warrants in Texas. He said he transferred me to a policeman in Texas, but it was the same guy talking. He wanted me to go get a Wal Mart Gift Card to give to an officer who would come by tomorrow. He wanted to stay on the line to "walk me through the process".

I told him that Social Security doesn't call - it sends letters. "But really - you have to straighten this out." Why would Social Security call from Michigan about Texas? And, I did verify it with Social Security and filed a report with the Inspector General. Talk about anxiety!

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I didn't receive the usual message that anyone had replied to this thread, so sorry for my late reply!

Thank you for the video on how to hygge your home! Lots faster than reading a whole book, I like her simple overview!

I don't have a good opinion on the gift idea, does your priest drink a lot of coffee? And if he does, could he afford the Keurig pods? They are more expensive than regular coffee. Totally depends on how what you feel like giving him and what you can find.

I'm totally getting into the holiday spirit! Putting up decorations for both, deep cleaning my house, all that jazz. I'm putting up the tree sometime today, I hope. Was going to yesterday, but DH never brought it up from the basement for me and it is too heavy for me and the kids to do ourselves.

For Christmas, I want to buy my priest a Keurig sold on Poshmark.

However, his secretary told me to buy him Wooden Classic TV Dinner Folding Trays with Storage Rack. These trays with storage rack just do not seem appealing to me. But, he did tell her he was wanting them. The secretary and I are like co-elves. He told her and I just happened to be asking. I have searched on Poshmark, but no trays there. The trays I did find are OK.

What do you think? Buy him the Keurig or get the trays?

It is rather hilarious now that I think of it...

About 5 years ago, I bought an iced tea maker at a yard sale. I used the iced tea maker quite often until I figured making iced tea in the microwave was easier.

So, we through the iced tea maker out when cleaning out the basement.

This summer, I bought another iced tea maker at a yard sale. Really nice one too. Brand-new. Of course, I bought it. Used the iced tea maker once, then let set on the counter.

Yesterday, the roommates threatened that the iced tea maker would go bye-bye if I do not use. So, I got off my tush and make some iced tea with the iced tea maker. I plan on making iced tea with it from now on.

FRANCESLUCAS, thank you, had to hold off on finishing the room, but got it mostly done. Just have a few plastic containers that have no home and no room in the closet (still has DH's stuff in it). Not sure what to do with it. Gotta have help with it though as I can't lift that much till I reach my post-op date for my eye surgery.

Anxiety has gotten worse. I don't know how much more I can take. I'm keeping it in as much as possible around my kids, they have enough stress with school, but that is making it worse on me so I don't think that is going to be a good option much longer. Grin and bear it never works for long, I collapse later and it takes longer and longer to recover. I finally sent a message to my psychiatrist and he got me in to see him this Friday afternoon. Means DH will have to pick up the kids, but I'm sure he can manage.

FRANCESLUCAS, thank you, I needed to hear that! I know it, but sometimes my mind goes to into cleaning mode and won't come out! I am going to get the dining room table clean today so that I can set up a 'station' there in the afternoons with my journal and books and sit down there and be more readily available to them. I was doing that till my DD14 took over the whole table. She has a tendency to spread out and keep going, LOL!!

I'm doing okay. I had a panic attack yesterday that drained me. I have been having more of those. So I went to bed early and slept in till 0730 (late for me nowadays!) and I woke up with a headache at first but after a few minutes of moving around feel completely refreshed!! My anxiety has not been as bad, but I have not had a lot of places to go or things to do. That changes next week where I have appointments every day. All my normal places to go, but it still usually gives me anxiety going out so much. Plus I will start taking my kids to and from school every day. I'll be busy!! I'll have to set alarms on my phone so I won't get anxiety about forgetting the time!

That is good about your eyes!

Don't worry about your house. Your family is important. I had three children all close in age and time with them was my priority. Your children will appreciate your time with them rather than a clean house. :)

Today is the best day to begin making changes for yourself and others both inside and out!

Doing well, recovering great from eye surgery and slowly getting my vision back! I actually drove today! I am working on a sewing project because there is not much else I can do because of restrictions the first week after eye surgery. I actually told my friend, I'm envious of her doing housework when I checked in on her via messenger to see how she was doing, because my house is so falling behind! I can't do much and the kids have after school activities and homework and DH is working and busy! They are doing what they can to help keep it up, but it's not the same.

On the bright side, I'm able to work toward my goal of learning how to sew better!! I'm trying to overcome my anxiety at the thought of failure and embrace that I'm going to make mistakes, I'm going to fail, but I can fail forward, as my favorite blogger (Silverjasmine) put it. I can learn from my mistakes and and keep pushing forward, not toward perfection (yes, I'm a recovering perfectionist) but toward being better than I was before.

All is good here. Just trying to control what I eat and continue to exercise while working from home. Want to stay busy so I am not thinking about all the things in the world.

I often feel left out as well. Not as much since I have gotten older. I usually find there is something going on with that person that I didn't know about. I have found reaching out to them first sometimes helps and listening to them.

Me, personally, (this is not directed to any of you) I have done some soul searching and realize I worried too much about me and my needs rather than focusing on the other person. Since I have changed my mindset about putting others first and their needs before my own, my anxiety has dropped about what they think about me. I am not always perfect at this but I try to improve daily.

I'm so sorry ON_A_DIET!!! emoticon This is always a fear of mine, and I guess why I have a hard time letting people get close. I hope that it resolves for you. emoticon emoticon

My anxiety has been really high the last few days. Really high. I had to take something and just go to bed with the dogs curled up around me and the sound of thunderstorms on the speaker playing softly last night. Rough night. Doing little better today, but not much.

My friends have been leaving me out of things. I do not know the reason.

I am always cheerful, honest and trustworthy.

It is not so much anxiety but disappointment.

You're welcome!!

Lots of anxiety this afternoon and not sure why. It was up this morning, but I was anxious about an MRI, which turned out pretty easy in comparison to last time when I was much heavier and was squished in it. My arm was in an uncomfortable position, so it was by no means easy, but a lot easier than the last one I had done!I

Still, just general anxiety, and pretty high. I've had to take something for it, but it is barely helping. I don't know what is going on.

I tried contacts, was doing really good with them but then had one get 'stuck', it didn't want to come out and it felt like when you get an eyelash in your eye! Haven't worn them since, so kudos to you for being able to wear them, I wish I could!!

The CBD oil I was taking daily, but only as I needed them. My anxiety was really bad at the time I started taking the oil, and it was the kind you put under your tongue so it gets in your system faster. But I only took it as my anxiety would get to where I needed it... so you don't have to take it daily. The melatonin is the same, no need to take it daily, I don't. If it is one of those nights where I'm wound up and know I'm going to have a hard time sleeping, then when I start my before bed routine I take some melatonin gummies (blackberry, they taste really good! found them on Amazon) and there is not need to take them nightly, but you can if you need to. I take 5 mg, that was what was recommended to me. It does not guarantee me a good night sleep, but I'm more likely to fall asleep and stay asleep for a while if I take it, along with a relaxing before bed routine.

I understand that. I'm very squeamish when it comes to the eyes. I'm surprised I can put contacts in, of course I've been wearing them for 30 years so I guess it's just second nature to me now.

Do you take the oil daily or can you take it as needed? Same question with the melatonin.

Laura, oh believe me, I understand you on family!

As far as natural stuff, I was taking CBD oil (the stuff without the THC in it), but to get a good one, or the gummies, it is expensive and I could not keep it up. I helped some though! For sleep I found out that if you take melatonin an hour or so before you plan on going to bed, it really relaxes you and helps you sleep better. Most people take melatonin right before they go to bed, and then say it doesn't help, this is why, it has to get into your system and work for a while first. Found that out from a pharmacology buddy, and then my new sleep doctor confirmed it. It helps a lot.

I'm so excited and anxious!! I am going ahead with the cataract surgery and getting my astigmatism taken care of as well!! It costs more out of pocket, but DH found a way for us to get it done. Yay! But man does the thought of the surgery itself make me anxious!!!

It's hard to stay away from Facebook when it's how I keep up the family things. On that note half the time it's my own family causing the stress and anxiety. It's pretty sad when you have to snooze your own sister. I've snoozed a lot of people in my family. They are on both sides of the political isle and can't be told they are wrong. It drives me crazy because they just post and they never fact check.

I have a question. Does anyone take a natural supplement for their anxiety? If yes what do you take? Does it help at all? My doc has offered but I don't want to go on a prescription drug. I'm trying to take the more natural route.

Yesterday was great, DD13-almost-14 had a great party!! emoticon

Miller, I'm so sorry to hear about your DD's work. I know about hurting when your DD hurts, my youngest has anxiety too. I hope things get better for your DD.

Laura, I agree with you, all the garbage has been making my anxiety worse, my sleep worse, probably adding to my migraines... I've unfollowed a lot of people on FB, they can't see when you do that, and then you don't have to see what they post. But even with that I have been staying away from FB more, and not watching the news at much, I am at odds. I want to stay informed, but my mental health cant take the way that the news is being reported on most media.

I go for my pre-op for my cataract tomorrow. I'm happy for that because I am tired of not knowing what is going on and want to know the details.

I have not yet heard back from the heart center on when/where to get the covid test done before I go get my testing done by them, so I may have to reschedule, and then it will have to be after I'm okayed by the eye doctor to do the test. So, waiting game tomorrow to see if they call to tell me the details. I'll at least get the one test done that the cardiologist really wanted done, and that is the one that does my blood pressure at different angles.Takes like three hours. I don't have to take the test to get that one done. Yay!

Hugs to all and hope everyone is doing okay

I've been MIA as well. I was doing so good but all of a sudden my anxiety has been up the past month or so. Usually I can pinpoint what's causing it even if it's something stupid but I can't figure it out this time. I'm going to try to stay away from Facebook for a while and see if that helps.
I'll probably start meditating again as well. That seemed to help last time. I started doing it several days a week even if I was feeling good.
All the Covid stuff and political garbage can't be good for any of us. Time to quit watching the news and stay away from anything that can trigger attacks.

Hi Karri,

I'm sorry you have to have cataract surgery. I've had it and the worst part for me was having to put all those different drops in my eyes for weeks afterward. Hope the Covid test isn't as uncomfortable this time. It seems like they've said on TV that they have less invasive Covid tests now. Don't know if that's true or not.

Wish your BFF could give you a hug when you're anxious and I'm very sorry you can't see her this year. I hope your medications soon get straightened out. I know what you mean about switching two meds at once - because then you never know which one may be causing a side effect or which one of the two is working.

Sure hope your allergies and migraine get much better very soon. Congratulations to your DD turning 14 this weekend. Happy Birthday to her!!
emoticon
The menu sounds delicious.



I'm feeling very down because my DD is having problems at her job. Can't remember if I've shared before that she's almost 29, but still lives at home with us, as she has severe anxiety disorders, OCD and depression. She said the people at work are leaving her out of things and including others. She feels rejected and like a loser. She's getting good remarks and feedback about her work, but she does struggle socially. I wish others would be more kind to her and try to include her when they can. It sounds like a very "clique-ish" environment. When she hurts, I hurt. Hope things will get better for her.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Hugs and more hugs emoticon emoticon

Wow, it has been a while since I've been on here,

Mindful-C, how are you doing? How is the new job?

Miller, how are you doing?

I'm having several tests done soon, and cataract surgery (everyone keeps telling me I'm too young to have cataracts, yet here I am...), so I'm going to have to get COVID tested again, not once, but twice. I'm not looking forward to that. At all. I've had it done once and it burns. When they suggest you sit on your hands, it is a good suggestion.

My anxiety has been up and down a lot. Talking to my BFF online has been helping, but she is a whole state away, and I really just want a hug, but with all that is going on, our plans to see each other this year went out the window. Had to switch my Bipolar and depression medications, two meds switched at one time is never a good idea, and it threw me into a depression. Which is probably why I haven't been around. I'm just now getting to to my email, not because the depression is any better, but because staying busy helps, and right now email it is. I should be cleaning, but I don't have the energy. My allergies are acting up bad, in fact I was basically sick they were so bad for about a week, finally got them to where I can at least sleep without coughing all night. Had a migraine too, and it is almost gone, still kinda there, but I'm hoping after running one last errand today I can lay down and take my migraine med and get rid of it all the way, just wipe it out.

We are celebrating DD13 turning 14 this weekend!! Crab/shrimp boil and cookie cake. I'll pass on the cake.Thankfully that is one that I can pass on!

How is everyone else doing?

ON_A_DIET, what sparks your interest when you read about the course? What makes you excited to read about the course and think, gee that might be interesting? Don't limit yourself to a particular course yet, take some courses and see what fits you best. Just don't overload yourself at first because anxiety can cause that to backfire. Take it slow, if you need to.

Miller, it's not mandatory here to wear masks, but different stores have made if where you can't come in without a mask. The governor has left it up to the store but servers and checkouts clerks and wait-staff have to wear masks, as do the back staff. All good.

I got tired of making masks, so I found some at Target and bought some, the washable kind. I forgot to get hubby some, so going back next week to get him some.

My anxiety has been bad. Working on some trauma work that has come up with my therapist that is going to take a while to get through, the whole riots and craziness going on in the US, and something else I can't quite put my finger on what it is. It literally had me going in circles from one thing to another the other day. Eating was one of the things in that circle. Took me forever to figure out I wasn't fidgety, I was anxious as all get out and needed to take my meds and do some meditation or something!! I called my best friend, we may be states apart but she always calms me down. I don't know what the other intangible thing is that I can't quite put my finger on is, but I'm guessing it is probably more PTSD stuff that is going to come up. NOT looking forward to that. Maybe not. Maybe it is just anxiety because anxiety. That happens too.

I hope you all are staying safe and well emoticon

emoticon Hi all.

MINDFUL-C, thanks so much for sharing and for your support. I’m sorry it took me so long to respond. *Well done on being in a healthy weight range!

KARRI, thanks for sharing. *I have a Spark friend who always eats protein with any treats she has. I think learning balance, as you’re doing, is important and smart.

ON_A_DIET, I don’t know what various types of free online courses are offered, but if any are of particular interest to you (and there are related jobs in your area), then that might help you decide. My daughter graduated from college and got a job she absolutely hated making an excellent salary. After a breakdown, and being out of work for over 3 years, she finally got back into the workplace at a veterinary hospital. She doesn’t make much money, but she loves it. My father always said that if a person has to work 8 hours a day, then they should work for the most money. But I’ve always thought that if a person has to work 8 hours a day, then it might as well be doing something they enjoy. I hope you decide on courses you might enjoy.



I’m doing okay. I have good days and not-so-good days. Am trying not to watch the news much, as it spikes my anxiety. The governor of my state has just issued a statewide order making masks mandatory. I’m glad because I think it will help and it can’t hurt.

I’m just doing my usual routine - chores, cooking, PT, short walks and an occasional Spark exercise video, reading, and movies.

I hope everyone is doing well. emoticon emoticon

Hello! I need your opinion!

There are many free on-line courses from many respectable universities. I would love to further my education and for free? Heck yeah.

This is where you come in... What classes should I take? Should I work on a Master's?

If not a Master's, then atleast on something.

Kindly do not tell me computers. I would be bored out of my mind.

I just do not know.

I have studied Political Science. I have studied Fitness and Nutrition.

With Political Science, I just do not think I want to get mixed up in politics anymore.

With Fitness and Nutrition, there really are not many jobs in this area near me.

I would appreciate any advice.

Thank you!

Miller, I'm with you, I also have CPTSD and have been working with a therapist on it for several years. But I have been having a rough go of it of late too.

C, even though I was pre-diabetic, it didn't stop me. Now I'm full blown diabetic, but am maintaining it with exercise and diet (barely). I'm trying to get better at it, but DH is downstairs baking an apple pie and wants me to go out and get ice cream. no. I still have my treats, but learning to balance it with protein and exercise is a must. And making the treats fewer and farther between. I wish you the best of luck in preventing it.

KARRI, I hope your sleep study goes well. Good for you to resisting that ice cream. My weakness is chocolate with nuts and caramel.

C, thanks for mentioning Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping). I'll look into it.



I struggle with emotional eating all the time. I feel scared at some level always. I was diagnosed with PTSD some years ago, but wasn't sure I believed the diagnosis because I kept thinking it was just something for combat veterans. I have suffered abuse, though, and that's what my psychiatrist and therapist said caused it.

I had blood work done on Thursday and it showed that my A1C level is back in the Pre-Diabetes range. That happened once before and I lost some weight and it dropped back in the normal range, but I've gained over 20 lbs since being on daily Prednisone for Polymyalgia Rheumatica. I'm making a concerted effort to eat more vegetables and less sugar. Even though I don't enjoy cooking, I'm trying new recipes now.

I woke up with a raging headache this morning and upset stomach, but am feeling a bit better now.

I hope things get better for everyone. Hugs to all. emoticon

C, thank you. And I'm so happy that is working for you! I may look into it! I love your saying below on your signature, "Live in the moment" That is what I strive to do, but with anxiety it sure can be difficult.

I saw an ad a week ago for ice cream, salted caramel ice cream, and now I want some so very badly. I know I should not. I was going to get DH to get me some and he grudgingly agreed to, but I just told him not to get any. Just pick up some cucumbers, so I can have those with our homemade ranch dressing and that will have the punch of flavor (DH makes it spicy) and crunch to satisfy anything like that. We don't even keep much chips in the house any more.

I'm working out daily, cardio walking, trying to reach 30 minutes, but being mindful of my knee. I usually feel at least a little better after a good workout. I prefer a good morning walk with the little dog outside before it gets hot, but I'm self isolating right now since I was tested for COVID-19 as a precaution before I go into the hospital for an overnight sleep study (it was negative). If you have to get tested, breath through your mouth, and relax as much as you are able. the more you tense, the more it hurts/ burns.

Hope everyone is doing okay and staying safe.

emoticon Jennifer.

Coffee or caffeine, for me, increases my anxiety, so I limit how much I have and I have a cut off time in the afternoon where I start drinking only non-caffeinated drinks.

I'm actually dealing with a lot of anxiety due to everything going on as well. I live outside of Atlanta, and the looters have said they would take to the suburbs. We are a good ways from Atlanta, but my there were protesters (not to be confused with looters) at the town my FIL lives in which is further North than we are! Just in a different direction, slightly. I'm worried. Peaceful protests I don't mind. Looters and mob mentality scare me. I pray that if any come here it is the peaceful protesters, not the mobs/rioters/looters. We are a small peaceful town.

I've been dealing with emotional eating due to the anxiety as well. I'm trying to eat healthfully at least, but that isn't always turning out the way I eat. I'm craving sweets and salty/crunchy.

Plus I'm dealing with a migraine I've had for a few days now.

I hope you all are staying healthy and safe emoticon

Great advice Miller!

I totally agree. Getting out for short walks can really help. I too am lucky enough to live where I can do that. I live in a tiny town that is in the middle of a national forest. I live in a great neighborhood that is on a .6 mile loop. If I get too anxious sometimes just doing one loop helps.

I also use a meditation app called headspace. It does cost but it also has a lot of free trial stuff. I just use the free stuff I'm not going to pay it's way to expensive for my cheap little butt. I also have a essential oil blend that I created that helps.

I hope things get better for you. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Jennifer, I'm sorry your anxiety is so difficult right now. What with Covid and the protests, it all feels like too much, I know. I think the list you made is sensible and sound and will help you a lot. I don't go many places (I didn't even before Covid), but I've noticed that if I go outside for a little while that just being out in nature helps. I'm fortunate to live in a neighborhood with lots of mature trees and somewhat large yards, so I can walk a bit and not usually see many people at all. When I do, I cross to the other side of the street. So far, I haven't been wearing a mask since my neighborhood isn't heavily populated and that's worked well. When I do go to the shopping center down the street to the Target store or to the grocery (we often order our groceries and pick them up), I do wear a mask and it is harder to breathe and I don't enjoy it much.

I take a tranquilizer at night to help me sleep (my psychiatrist prescribed it) and I also take one-half of one during the day if I'm very anxious. Also, some of my depression medicines help me sleep, otherwise I probably wouldn't be getting much sleep at all as I have chronic pain. My husband has been waking up and not being able to go back to sleep for months now, so he's started a tranquilizer some nights, too, as prescribed by his primary doctor (my husband is a heart patient).

I don't know if you have any type of sleep aide you could take. If not, maybe looking online for ideas on "good sleep hygiene" would help. My daughter has to turn off all electronic devices (well, her doctor said a Kindle e-reader would be okay), but not a TV or computer about an hour before bedtime. Also, limiting caffeine in the evenings and getting some light during the day. She has a light box she uses during the wintertime in the early mornings. Something about our internals "clocks" need light.

I do think you're wise not to put undue pressure on yourself. If you can make some of these changes, then maybe do them in little small steps, like cutting back a bit on alcohol or coffee and getting out a bit more. And yes, sleeping when you need it is so important. I don't think anyone feels good when they're not getting restorative sleep.

I hope things get better for you soon. Life is challenging for those of us with anxiety and other issues, let alone with all these other things affecting us, as well.

Sending you virtual hugs and all my best wishes for better days - and nights!! emoticon

So - apparently I did join this team awhile back. Lol. I went looking for a team for people with anxiety & found I had joined this one.

Please forgive me for jumping in here like this, but I've got to talk about it.

My anxiety has gotten entirely out of control & I've got to make some changes fast. Without putting PRESSURE on myself. Seems like I've gotten to where I can't stand any pressure whatsoever & feel like I have A.D.D so it's hard to get things done. Yesterday afternoon was one long panic attack. My heart beating fast for so long it was almost painful.

I'm trying to make a short list of some SIMPLE changes I can make to help. So far I've come up with:
*Get out of the house a little more (I noticed I felt less anxiety yesterday when I got out for awhile)
* Drink alcohol less often
* Cut back on Coffee - which I've increased recently - alot to do with current job where I have to do alot of FAST & Heavy Data Entry
* SLEEP when I need it, instead of pushing through - (usually using caffeine to do so)
* Try to find support group of people to talk to - I need in-person really, but with Covid I guess that's out the window, but I need to get OUT of here.

Speaking of Covid - I'm not used to always going out for entertainment, so one would think my life hadn't changed that much. But those 5 hours a day I'd go to my part-time job, at least got me out of here. That and going to Walmart or someplace shopping. Now with a mask it's hard to breath & it makes my anxiety worse, so I send hubby most times. What little time I had away from here has dwindled to nearly none & maybe that's part of my problem escalating like it is.

Just talking about this is making me tired. Both my & my husband's sleep life is HORRIBLE. Both wake up middle of the night & can't go back to sleep. Hubby's been like this for awhile, but it's recent for me - waking up between 2 and 4 a.m. and staying up the rest of the day!

Oh yes. The Riots. I live outside Dallas & my daughter lives near downtown Dallas, so this may have spawned the lengthy anxiety attack yesterday too.

Well that was all garbled, so if anyone reads it or responds I not only thank, but commend you.

Thanks - Jennifer

Hi, I haven't read either of the books you mentioned, but looked at reviews on them and it seems the reviews are primarily positive. I especially like that Paul David was an anxiety sufferer and is writing from that viewpoint. I've spent money on books that weren't very helpful, too.

As far as the coffee discussion goes, I like mine with cream. I used to drink it with sugar, too, but stopped that about 30 years ago.

I loved drinking tea with my Mom. I started drinking coffee when I was 15 though. But I've been drinking hot tea (or iced tea) since I was little. My Mom liked the benefits of green tea and herbal teas. I think she was ahead of her time. Or out of her element, I grew up in the middle of nowhere TN, but before I was born we lived in NM in larger cities. My taste buds are changing and coffee just... I can't have more than one cup a day now, it gives me jitters and it doesn't taste good after that one cup. I don't crave it like I used to. I love my teas though. My favorite teacup, one that has a strainer for loose leave tea, cracked and started a slow leak on the table the other day. You could barely see the fine lines in it. I loved that cup, but I guess the brand was not good. I don't microwave them, I just pour the hot water into them. I think it is wonderful that you grew up drinking tea and having those memories. I think if I had as espresso maker and could make lattes all day, I would drink more coffee, but that would not be good for me. I think I'll slowly go to just drinking tea. Speaking of, I think I'll go make some!

Wonderful that you are getting a garden!! I want one, but we won't get to have a proper one till next year. I have two tomato plants and two red bell pepper plants in planters, netting up for them to grow up. I picked up some more begonias to plant out front and the guy that owned the place said I looked like I had a green thumb and handed me some dying flowers to plant and see if they would come back to life, otherwise he would throw them out! Nice to have additional flowers!! emoticon

I've never been a coffee drinker. I've been drinking tea since I could hold the cup. I was raised by my grandmother who liked to think she was British (LOL). She had these little white teacups for the grandkids. As I grew I graduated to the adult teacups which were fancier and a lot less durable. We'd drink tea and play cards almost every night when I was a teenager. Last week marked 34 years since she's been gone. I really miss her.

I had a good weekend. I got to play in the dirt a little bit. Flowers are all planted. Hubby has been working on an area to put in a vegetable garden. We have to inclose it with chicken wire to try to keep the rabbits out. We should be able to plant that this weekend. Getting out in the sunshine really helps my mental health.

Mine are coffee memes and whatever awareness day/month it is. It is Mental Health Awareness Month, so I imagine a lot of people snooze or unfollow me during this time, LOL. That is fine.

But I'm starting to be more of a tea drinker, so I guess I'll have to find some tea memes... I found a great japanese coffee pot, but would love an English one as well (with cabbage roses, don't ask me why, I just do, LOL), just don't have anywhere to put it. Too many coffee cups, LOL. I found this great tea that tastes great, gives me energy like coffee, but without the jitters and bad side effects. It's called Wise Woman Tea (from Flylady) and is basically Earl Grey with green tea in it. Pretty yummy when paired with local honey

I too snoozed a lot of people on FB. A lot of them are really annoying and frustrating me which will get my anxiety going. Too many friends and family members on both sides of the isle politically and weighing in on the C19. I never post anything political. It's nobodies business what I believe. My posts consist of book and wine memes.

Hello all!!

I understand taking a break, I unfollowed most of the people that were doing that a while ago so that I only see a few of them, and if they get rowdy, I hit the 'snooze' button on them (you don't see them for 30 days). I'm trying to stay active on SP, but I'm just ... I don't know, my anxiety is really up and my motivation down, but at the same time I really want to be losing this weight and getting things done. I'm following that website, and checking things off, it is keeping me motivated for around the house at least (most of the time). I'm... I don't know.

I'm trying to hang in there. Mother's day was great, had a crab/shrimp boil at my in-laws. I finally talked to my therapist about my dilemma with my MIL, we have never been really close, but I would like us to be closer. But I don't know what to call her. I started calling my FIL Dad, He is like the Dad I never had, not really. I mean, I had a Dad, but.... it's a long story. He's awesome. I wanted to see about calling her Mom like some people do their MIL, but was too nervous about it. So my therapist was like, just ask her. Say exactly what you said to me. And she was exuberant about it. and on my Mother's day card, she signed it Mom and underlined it three times, LOL. I feel great about that. She is like my 2nd Mom. emoticon Hope you all had a great Mother's Day too!!

Miller, Glad being off of FB has helped to lower your anxiety some! it can be a toxic place!

Hi to all.

KARRI, it's great that you spend one-on-one time with each of your girls!! *Sounds like you're doing some enjoyable and very productive things - that is great! Thanks for letting me know about myonesweetlife.com - I will check it out.

I'm taking a bit of a break from social media right now. It's a complete break from Facebook (I deactivated my account) because there was just too much negativity and political stuff and posts about conspiracy theories that I just couldn't take the stress of it anymore. I'm taking a "partial break" from SparkPeople. I'm still here, just not posting quite as much on my teams (except the one I lead, as I made a commitment there). Just being off Facebook has helped lower my anxiety.

I hope you're doing well. Happy Mother's Day!!!

Good super early morning all!! I've been up for a while, just now got to this thread. Insomnia and allergies are plotting against me. I'm tired but wired and have sinus drainage from the allergies. Bleh.

Miller, I'm finding that staying busy in any ways helps, as long as I don't overload myself (causing more anxiety!) I do good with that. So yesterday I had "individual time" with my DD12. I do this with each of my girls once a week, so we spend time with just me and one of them. We missed game night, and 'crafternoon', so we are going to try to fit those into today and tomorrow. Last week of school, as long as they are all caught up, we will turn in their iPads and be done as of Monday. Looking forward to it and not, because then we have to come up with stuff to keep them preoccupied.

Back to staying busy! I was given a sourdough starter, so I'm working with it, making bread, my first loaf turned out awful, but I know what I did wrong, so that is okay. Made sourdough pretzels last night and they turned out great!! I'm gardening, planted some marigolds from seedlings in little planters. They have been outside and so I don't want to bring them in, just in case of bugs, but tonight and tomorrow is supposed to get down in the 30's!!! I've been cleaning and mask making (had to slow down on that and limit how much time I spend on it so I have time for everything else and don't burn out), baking and tending my plants, journaling and working on creating a binder, as well as taking an online course that I just started at myonesweetlife.com I fell in love with a sheet she had created, and while I could easily make the same/similar myself, I didn't want to with all I've got going on, so I paid for a membership to her site ($9 a month) and got the printable and so much more!! I love it and am working on creating a binder that works for me from her site, plus listening/going through the classes she has on it. I highly recommend it, if you need something like that.

Hi to all.

KARRIE, that's a cute Sponge Bob graphic! I'm sure cleaning is good for anxiety. I remember reading in a book one time that women who are worried are fortunate because they can always wash their kitchen floor, etc. They may still be worried afterwards, but at least they'll have a clean floor!!

I hope you can get another, lighter weighted blanket. I don't have one of those, but have found that sometimes bundling myself into a warm cozy jacket helps with anxiety. Or course, with temps as high as they are in NC now and our air conditioning system broken, a warm jacket would probably make me pass out!

I hope you have good luck with your succulent!!

Afternoon everybody! I hope your week is going well! Happy Cinco de Mayo on Taco Tuesday!!

Miller, I don't always get up and clean and such but I try to. I've been finding that if I close in on myself, I get lethargic, I want to curl up in a ball, I want my weighted blanket back (I gave it as a gift to a friend, I lost weight and it was too heavy for me, I need a 10 pound one now and it was a 15 pound one). But I had a lot of nervous energy one day and just got up and started cleaning, because the mess around me was causing my anxiety to get worse. And it helped. Listening to a good audio-book or music and walking helps too. But I found that cleaning helps more. Sometimes I don't get much done, I'll flit from room to room... or it won't look like I'm getting much done, I'm really just taking stuff that is in the wrong room to the right room, but it racks up my step count.



I found this pic and thought it was funny, till I discovered that cleaning actually can help ease my anxiety some.

Wish me luck, I bought a succulent today. I even bought a pot to transplant it to. I don't have a good history with these kinds of plants because they don't require much attention, and I like to garden and pay attention! So I got pebbles to put at the bottom and a pot with a hole at the bottom so if I overwater it, it will run out. And yes, I bought a plate to go under it, lol. I'll post a picture on my blog today or tomorrow.

emoticon Hi all.

KARRI, I should clean and exercise when my anxiety spikes like you did. I tend to sit in my chair and close in on myself instead of doing something productive. I have chronic treatment-resistant depression, as well as anxiety disorders, so I rarely feel motivated to do anything. I force myself to do what absolutely has to be done. I remember once getting a spurt of energy when the doctor put me on a new antidepressant - it felt so good to feel so good for a while.

I'm sorry you sometimes have the feeling of bees in your chest. That must be difficult to deal with. I sometimes wonder if my middle sister has bipolar. My eldest sister's daughter was diagnosed with it.

My anxiety is about the same as last time I posted. I'm taking a half of a tranquilizer (or some days even a whole one) almost every day now and I didn't usually have to do that before Covid. I've stopped watching news and rarely read it, either. I try to keep up with what's going on in my state regarding the stay-at-home order. I do feel better when I don't watch the news so much.

I hope everyone has a good week. emoticon

Laura, glad you got some fresh veggies and have been walking emoticon I'm trying to get more in a habit of doing so myself too.

Miller, my anxiety spiked today too. I had a lot of nervous energy and ended up doing a LOT of cleaning and walking around inside the house (went outside and an ambulance and fire truck rolled up to a neighbors house and took someone out, about four houses down... so there went my plan to go walking down the cul de sac! I was not about to interrupt or walk by that!

But, I also have bipolar, so it could be anxiety mixed with a possible onset of a manic phase. I do have a lot of energy. And I've gotten a lot done. A. Lot. But it feels more anxiety. Like a bees nest in my chest. I took something for it, but it barely has taken the edge off. I don't want to take more because I don't want it to make me sleepy. I am not supposed to be taking naps, according to my sleep doctor, and I try not to unless I have a migraine. Then I make an exception.

Laura, it's wonderful that you've been walking so much. I sometimes walk in the neighborhood (when my pain isn't too bad) and sometimes do seated exercise videos. *It's good that your anxiety hasn't been too bad. Hopefully things will remain good even after your husband resumes normal working hours.

My husband is home all the time, as he was forced to retire a little over a year ago. He wanted to keep working until he was at least 70, but they didn't see it that way. Sometimes we get on each other's nerves, but for the most part we're enjoying the time together.

My anxiety is spiked some today. I will probably end up taking half of a tranquilizer. My doctor says I can take a whole one each day, but I don't often need to do that.

Hope you have a good weekend! emoticon

Mine hasn't been to bad. It helps that my husband has been working limited hours and is home more. He is my rock and keeps me centered and grounded. I'm hoping I don't have issues when he returns to normal working hours.

My eating is still a bit out of control. I was finally able to get some fresh veggies but at night I tend to eat more junk food. At least I'm getting in good almost daily walks.

KARRI, I hope sticking to your nighttime routine has continued to be helpful. emoticon



Sorry I haven't stopped by here lately. I've been busy with the 5% Challenge - never knew how much time that would take, as it's the first I've done.

I haven't done as much emotional eating this week, but am still up pound from last week. I hope to lose it before my weigh-in on Saturday.

I bought some masks from a woman in our community. Several people nearby were sewing them.

So far, we have stayed healthy. I hope that continues. My DD, who still lives at home, does have to work at the veterinary hospital, so we are more exposed than we'd like. She does wear protective gear, however.

Hope everyone's anxiety isn't too bad. I have ups and downs. Take care and be well, all.

When I stick to my night time routine, I sleep better for having wound down for the night. I also find it helpful to write whatever is on my mind on a piece of paper called a 'brain dump'. Doesn't matter what it is, if it crosses your mind, write it down to get it out so you don't think about it later. Doesn't have to be a To Do list, can simply be that the guy at the grocery store looked at you weird or walked too close to you. I found also that if I find something is nagging my mind, to go ahead and check on it before I go to bed so that it doesn't wake me up later where I have to go check on it. I didn't know if the kids remembered to put something that belonged in the fridge but looked like it could have gone in the pantry in the place it belonged, so I checked before getting in bed, just to put my mind at ease.

We found out that a lot of the cases in our town have been contracted at Walmart because people there are not adhering to the 6 ft. guidance, so no going to Walmart. Which sucks because I wanted to go get a table for crafting, my sewing machine is on a small writing table. Aunt got cabin fever and though she is at risk, spent the whole day out doing things yesterday. I understand. I've had cabin fever, but it's only been a few weeks, not months, so I guess I don't really understand.

I've been having trouble with my emotional eating too. I'm trying though. I ordered some yummy shakes, they are bariatric, but I think they would be a good meal replacement for anyone, if you like coffee, especially frappuccinos. I blend mine with the unsweetened almond milk and ice to make it like a frap. It is called Protein One Iced Coffee and found on BariatricPal.com, it has two shots of espresso worth of caffeine in each shake, which helps it taste more like a real frap. I only like it like a frap, I don't like it any other way. They are on sale for $10 off per bag right now and each bag is 21 servings, or you can buy a sample 1 pack to see if you like it. It even has vitamins and minerals in it. Just thought I'd share, I'm a coffee-aholic and this has helped me to reduce my sugar intake.

That and I've finally made the switch from sugar to Stevia. It's not bad. It's not a yumalicious as sugar in my coffee, but it does good. It is better, imho, than allulose, which is not sweet to me. No aftertaste that I don't like. But I do get some sugar from my creamer, which is caramel latte flavored, and I don't plan on giving that up for a while. One thing at a time.

Karri, thank you. *I like the idea of doing a nightly routine for self care. emoticon


My anxiety is a bit better since I reduced the amount of time I'm on social media and am watching less of the all-day newscasts.

Still, I'm having a lot of trouble with emotional eating. I'm doing the 5% Spring Challenge, but so far that hasn't "reigned in" my eating. The good news is that I am exercising more consistently.

I hope everyone is doing well. emoticon
