Anxious and irritable

I’m stuck in a car at the moment with someone who is sucking my energy out of me. I need my medicine. Can’t wait till I can take it and get away from them so I can breathe again and be by myself and recharge I suppose. I don’t want to take it out them but sometimes silence is the best solution just wish they would shout up already. It’s making more anxious more irritable by the second. Please help! Just Little over hour I can do this!

Take a deep breath! Think about something you are going to do after this, like what you'll do when you get home. Think about what you will do once you're by yourself, what you'll do to recharge. Maybe make a plan so your mind has something different to focus on. Open a window or get some air conditioning on your face, that helps me snap out of anxiety in the car.

I’m running out of options here just want to start taking tripsAnd vacations alone to where no one knows where I disappeared to. And Who knows maybe I’ll be missed but probably not

Sometimes when I have the cash I tell my fam I need time alone and I go and get a hotel for a night it’s very relaxing and calm. Do my my own thing
