Anxiety: Riding High

My anxiety has been so bad, that I was scared by a neighbor and literally started running for my life, then I realized it was my neighbor and his dog. I was inside my closed, watchmen secured neighborhood. I realized I've been very on edge recently.

Yesterday I felt I was about to lose my mind. I was freaking out about something I feel is stuck in my throat. It's still there. I don't know if it's a simple sensation from anxiety or if I hurt my throat the day before while hanging out with a friend and we screamed at the top of our lungs. It doesn't feel like my throat is sore though. I don't know. I'm trying to relax about it and see what happens in the next few days. I hope it will just go away.

I went on a walk to ease mg anxiety and I've been resting as well. Hoping things will improve soon

LifewithGAD it sounds like you might have strained your voice box when screaming with your friend. I know the feeling from when I use to sing for a long time, I would get that feeling in my throat. The best thing is to drink warm fluids for a few days and not strain your voice with loud sounds until it heals. You didn't hurt anything, it's okay. Your throat just needs a little rest.

Feel better soon. xx

Agora1, you bring words of comfort. Thank you so much for telling me this. On top of everything I was singing without first warming up. I will follow your recommendation and drink warm liquids.

I appreciate that a lot!
