Feeling SO Irritated Today

I’m feeling so irritated today. I’ve been having so much anxiety lately and it’s really getting to me. It’s not fair. With mental illness there’s no break or anything you can do in the moment to relieve it. It’s not like when you’re sick, you can take a pill or even having a serious sickness, you can take a pain pill. When you’re in the heart of anxiety or depression you have to wait it out. All these little things happened today and anyone normal would brush it off. I feel crazy. I actually cried because I couldn’t find a pen. I wanted to write and the only pen in the house was not where I left it. I literally grunted so loud and broke down. Seriously???Thanks for listening to my crazy rant. I needed to get it out.

Somedays are just not good ones for us. Hang in there. Are you able to refocus your thoughts into positive ones? It is very helpful. I wish for you peace of mind. Love, peace, joy, light & hugs!!!

I was just going to say cry and shout it out GIRL! It feels so much better! Then, if you're like me, with kids, grab a crayon to write down what you need to. Trust me, you will laugh at it all later. And... you just might want to use the crayon on a sheet of paper to let out the little artist inside of you. Your fustrations just may be your inspiration for art. HUGS!

Hey girlie, I’m sorry that I’m replying to you this late. I honestly didn’t see this post. I know exactly what you’re saying about there’s no “quick fix” for anxiety or panic attacks. I just try to get away from anyone at that moment & focus on my breathing. Sometimes the best form of action is to just FEEL it. Cry. Let it out. Don’t keep that stuff bottled up & I know I am preaching to the choir here aka myself, but don’t beat yourself up about it. There’s nothing wrong with crying over losing a pen. It’s like that sometimes. You’re the best you that you can possibly be. If you feel like it’s completely taken over your life & you need help, go see a doctor or start speaking to a therapist. I love to meditate & do yoga every day too. I actually notice that the days that I miss doing that, I’m more on edge than when I do them regularly. Work out. Eat your favorite snack. Listen to your favorite music. Watch a whole season of your favorite show. Read your favorite book. Whatever it takes to make you feel good about yourself, because you deserve it. I hope you know that I’m always here for you. Again, I am so sorry I didn’t see your post until just now. I really do think of you often. I am always here for you when you need me. Stay strong, beautiful. <3

Awww girl thank you! I definitely cried it out!! Sometimes we just gotta do that. I appreciate your advice. I wound up watching a season of Friends. It helped a little. I also got this new journal. I hope you’re doing well. You’re such a sweetheart. Luv u!! ❤️

okay.... we are on the same page.... I don't know if there is a planetary miss-alignment or something because it's why I missed your post.... going through crap too... I didn't even read most posts.... jumped on and off but didn't see this post till today. Your hitting the brick wall running.... I totally understand this cause I'm right there with you. Your exactly right...we just take things on board so hard that we come un-glued with simple things sometimes when we are just over whelmed emotionally. I hate it too, your not alone with this...it's not uncommon for this to happen with us.

So whats going on gf... what is happening that has you in this place... you know my BS... and you also know I'm all ears for you.... what's up.....I care... I want to be there for you like you have been for me my friend.... this is a two way street pal.....just cause I got stuff going on to does not mean I cannot be there for you.... I'm here... always...

Awww thanks Faux! I didn’t know if I was being overly sensitive but I appreciate what you said. I’ll message you 💕

no you were not at all Maria.... and there seems to be quite a lull with a lot of us, like some big cosmic hick-up with our lives these days....and with so many new posts sometimes we miss each other... I just have not honestly been on much in the last 5 days .... and I am so sorry I missed you when you were reaching out...you are always there for me and a kind friend.... I'm on and off here as usual since the little ones are back and we are coming and going... but I will eventually catch up with you...okay? You hang in there honey... this is gonna pass.... things may not change in our lives they way we wish they would... but we will find a way... we'll work through it....luv ya pal.

Hi MariaLove123, A day late, a dollar short but here I am. You're so right in that anxiety itself wears us down physically and mentally and can make us irritable. It gnaws away at our insides that I too sometimes just want to scream but instead I cry. After I cry, I go to YouTube (my go to friend) and either watch some funny videos or more likely listen to meditation/mindfulness and deep breathing. It can help some in bringing down the stress level we feel. I am lucky to have a therapist that I can call at the drop of a hat and she will

always find a few moments for me to rant and rave. I know how much it helps us to let someone else know our emotional pain. There may not be a magic pill but know that we all care about each other on this site. Whether we laugh together or cry together at least we are never alone. I hope today is a better day for you. Wishing you calm :) xx

I love your honesty and candor.... that's a real friend who bares the truth of this disease and then can share the love... I have always liked your comments Agora1, your a good egg.

I'm sorry, that's so hard. But you're wrong about one thing. You. Are. Not. Crazy. Your anxiety and depression are not you.

Sending love and comfort and hugs

sorry, responding too late. I do feel this way sometimes, but for me there is always something to do to make it better(not to get rid of it, just make it a little better). Usually it is either physical activity ...or opposite: slowing down, doing breathing, meditation...I need sometimes to get away from people(if it is possible) and relax and slow down in my thoughts. Sometimes just to watch stupid show and take my mind off things ...thoughts...source of irritation. But i know how it feels when you can cry over the pen...or some little thing...because it is just too much and anything can send you over the edge.

it is not fair...what we experience is not fair at all...but it does not help me to realize that, only some steps and plans how to deal with that helps me.

I hope you have less days like that ....and more peaceful days...Love and hugs to you!
