Let's talk about our Strength

We keep forgetting about how strong we are, me included. My bad days matter cause i survive through them i keep trying and TRYING ladies and gentlemen especially for people like us is A BIG DEAL and take HUGE effort. I didn't have a good day yesterday had a panic attack on the sidewalk during one of my walks got even more overwhelmed when strangers started surrounding me and making it hard for me to breathe until the paramedics arrived i couldn't even tell them my name. Now usually after an attack i shut down afraid to go back outside so i won't trigger another one but now i know better, im keeping myself busy that's why im not on this site as often as before.... thanks to Google and YouTube im getting better at Gardening, planting sunflowers which are my favorites, going for a run at 2 am when the streets are empty, yoga, meditation, reading and music lots of music and of course therapy and medication. These things works for me and since we're different they might and might not work for you but trying never hurt anyone or you can try climbing (which im horrible at but its fun)

I don’t let the setbacks keep me back I move forward from them and plough through that’s right I do over again and again and I get it right and when I don’t I grow through learning and I keep progressing and never give up

Awwww you are incredibly sweet I so appreciate you SweetSymphony.

Yes keep fighting. Avoidance only reaffirms the false beliefs that perpetuate panic disorder. I am trying to figure out out to do now that I have won the battle. My life is so stagnant. Sometimes I wonder why I even tried to leave the house. Their is nothing for me in the real world.

The real world can be stressful but we still need to get out there, we have a full life to live

I have been out there. I was homebound. Now I am able to go out but have nothing to do except attend church on sundays. Stagnant.

Thank you.Mom gets worried also but im careful

Beaming with such pride for you 🌻🌻🌻 Super proud of you Danielle ❤ We are strong & we all need to remember this. A few years ago I got a ring made (Esty) that says "STRONGER than this" to remind myself, especially when anxiety gets bad. We will get through it. Keep kicking butt 😊
