Good morning all, I'm new here and my name is Lynn. I quit my job just over 2 years ago. Since then my depression and anxiety has gotten the better of me at times. Yesterday my husband triggered anxiety, I was taking care of my daughter so I tried to set it aside. Then I got a text message that upset me. Long story short by the end of the day I was so overwhelmed with emotion that I ended up lashing out in search of release. Throughout the day I had tried several things to cope but I was unsuccessful. This is very unhealthy. I don't know what to do. Anyone have suggestions?
After posting I kept thinking of how yesterday could have been handled better, and I think the answer lies in how I suppressed my feelings early in the day, and when I tried to release by talking to friends, all of whom were unavailable, it just built up. So when I am I unable to successfully find a release, any suggestions at that point? And again after it gets so overwhelming that I begin to make bad decisions?
