I'm new to this blog. I'm looking for answers. I've been suffering with anxiety about 13 years. I had a couple of serious childhood accidents as a child and got physically abused. I watched my mother get beat up so many times by my dad. I've done all the therapy so I'm ok with my past. My body is not....... I do not have a handle on the anxiety right now. My poor amygdala has been too insulted. Just thinking about leaving the house gets me anxious. I have to go to work tomorrow. I'm so dreading the stress. I'm fighting but there comes a time when you have to accept your fate. I believe mine is disability. Anyone else experience this and if so, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Newbie looking for support - Anxiety and Depre...
Hi there, I was emotionally abused by my parents as a child, I can only imagine how awful it must’ve been for you, I’m so sorry. My pdoc and I are always talking about my overactive amygdala too, so it’s nice to hear someone else mention it. I had to apply for disability back in 2013, because my depression and anxiety were so bad I couldn’t hold down a job. Luckily my grandfather was willing to help me financially, but unfortunately I still deal w the anxiety and depression. The best advice I can give is to try to find someone to talk to about your current troubles to see if it helps. I wish you the best!
Take slow deep breaths in through your nose then out through your mouth! I find this to be very helpful!!! Wishing you nothing but the best!!! Love & Hugs!!!
