My basement flooded and Iโ€™m thankful that I donโ€™t trust narcissists and I was smart enough to know better than to listen to him โ€œmy basement never gets wetโ€.... any basement can get wet!!! So ignoring his opinion, I decided to elevate ALL OF my personal property on pallets! Iโ€™m upset it all had to be stored there in the first place, I was not told I would live here for months before the house was ready enough for me to move my stuff in to the living areas!!! Smh... thank you brain ๐Ÿง  and intuitive knowledge of B.S. artists!

Hi Starr, sounds like you're feeling better? That's great!!! You'll always have support here. I've had a couple of decent days, today is so far so good? I woke up with my body feeling like it was on Fire and upset stomach ache which is a Red Flag that my anxiety was starting? I tried not to let it progress, saying positive things to calm myself. It's helped, though I feel alittle anxious.

Well you take care and keep in touchโ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ™

Was feeling so great today but just had company over and soon again having another group of company which stresses me but will be okay. Good that you said positive calming things to yourself. I will try that. And I will picture good times ahead. Best to you hope you can smush down that bit of anxiety.

Hope today is s good one for ya!

Thank you, I hope your feeling better?

Blah lol ๐Ÿ˜† just blah. Thanks Want2BHappy3!

Hi Starr, I've had 5 successful days without anxiety โ˜บ๏ธ. I'm cautiously optimistic ๐Ÿ™„. Been Praying Real Hard ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™. The down side is because I've spent so much time in bed out of shape,, being out and about has been hurting me physically๐Ÿ˜ž

That is amazing and I am so happy for you and hope your body will get used to it after a bit.

Thanks me too, I wish the BEST for you and your family โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ™

Love this positivity!

I am greatful for my family and my beautiful son.

I am greatful for this forum, it's nice to not feel alone.

Look forward to hearing how it goes ! X

These past couple weeks have been extremely hard for me. As soon as I wake up I start to worry and my anxiety flares. Mostly about my health... Thereโ€™s always something wrong with me. Why canโ€™t I just be normal?!!! But even though Iโ€™m struggling... I am grateful for my loving husband who puts up with my issues and comforts me. I am also grateful for my son. If it wasnโ€™t for him my addiction wouldโ€™ve taken over my life.

Please tell me more about your grounding techniques. Thanks.

Hi ! I have a list of grounding techniques in which some work some of the time. I also have reminders that I have a guide that I see beauty everywhere and I am free. I need to be sticking positive reminders and affirmations around the house.

So I have a whole list of what is beautiful to me which helps me feel safe, positive, brighter, lighter.

I have another long list of things I can do when I feel on edge like I can say a prayer or an affirmation, I can try deep breathing or happy place visualizations, see a movie...

Do you want me to write out either of those lists there? Let me know. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I am grateful for the ability to keep going and the willingness to never give up

I am grateful for my new founds friends in this community that give me so much hope

I am grateful for sleepy time tea..... ๐Ÿ˜ด

I am grateful for humor and laughter
