Good or bad?

Not sure whether u guys would think that this is a good thing or not. I find it both. I was talking to a teacher abt anxiety, not saying that I have it or anything. She explained how unlike some diseases that u can’t do anything abt, anxiety is completely having to do with u and ur coping skills. Which means technically although it’s super hard. It IS possible to overcome anxiety, but it is rlly hard and that’s y a lot of ppl don’t. As I said I’m rly bad at explaining stuff so does that make sense?

Sorry you're struggling with this issue. Yes I understand it completely. Almost feels helpless feeling unwanted things. But you can do it I believe you can.

This sounds sooo hard. See this is my problem a lot. Like if anyone wants to encourage me to do something for my own good, they can’t motivate me with something in the future. If it isn’t writhing the month, it’ll feel too far away too early to think abt it and Ill push it off... and I’m blabbering again. Seriously I don’t think what I’m saying connects to ur text at all. Wow self... wow

Just try to take it day by day. I know it is easy for me to say but I have to break things down like that or I get overwhelmed.

The best thing for me when it came to anxiety was to exercise. Late at night I would put on classical or new age music and try to meditate (for some reason my internal chatter will never cease so I'm not good at that). Another thing I do is read spiritual type books.
