Tired

I’m tired of jumping to worse case scenario every time something happens. Or when the news says someone close had a wreck and it is in my community. I instantly feel fear and start texting my kids before my heart will even begin to slow down. My youngest son has a dangerous job and it scares me every day I know he is going to work. In the last decade I’ve lost a sister,my mother,my brother, gone blind in one eye and dealt with someone who is hard to deal with. I know that’s life. I guess it doesn’t matter what brought me to panic and anxiety and depression. It is what it is. I have some good days too. Guess I’m just feeling really down and tired today. Sorry if I’m bringing anyone else down. You know I almost died when I was young and that battle almost seems easier than the fear of dying is. It’s crazy!!

I guess most of us probably feel that way because of our anxiety.

I think that's very true! It is so very crazy😱 Anxiety keeps me pretty housebound but man its super tough trying to fight it!!! Going to the store, Dr, and now PAWS to volunteer is sooooo very terrifying!!!! All my mind tells me is that you mess up everything, your such a loser, everybody hates you, the list goes on forever and ever! Anyhoo, I know how you feel. Anxiety is the worse😭

You have a good heart to care for animals like you do. Don’t believe it when anyone tells you otherwise. You go above and beyond for those little animals. !!

You too Glendajean have a warm tender heart and soul and I'm so sorry for all that you've dealt with. It can't be easy! Your very brave💝 Its definitely life on life's terms. Doesn't make life easy tho does it! As far as the dogs, they are a way to go feel happy and joyous cause seeing those faces could brighten up anyone's day💝🐶🐾 To go help warms my ❤ cause they don't have a home yet and it breaks my ❤. They all deserve a family or someone to love and cherish them!! The volunteers love them all to pieces!!! Me included😄😄

Yes. And you have to have a beautiful heart to do that—especially facing anxiety —but you do it anyway!!

I can't even explain how terrifying it is. I just cancelled going to the petsmart adoption event yesterday due to overwhelming terror!!! I was flipping out and couldn't go. I feel extremely crappy cause anxiety rules my life. I feel like anxiety will eventually just kill me. I'm so tired of fighting it!!!😱😱😱😥😥😥😭

It’s true. Just because your mom has angry words for you doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to think of some positive things that are true for you. Anita Moorjani really teaches self love. You should look her up on YouTube.

She’s pretty awesome. She went thru hell with cancer that almost killed her—had an NDE and learned that loving ourselves is the most important thing to do. She has a t shirt that reads “love yourself like your life depends on it because it does!!”

I looked her up but have adhd and my attention span stops listening a second later. Omg its beyond frustrating!! And I'm taking 30 mg adderall! Ill try again in the morning or maybe when I go lay down. She does sound amazing and yes she has battled so much. That's so awesome to beat cancer!! That's inspiring😄 God bless her!!💝🙏💝

Thank you and so are you. I’m sure your pain makes your anxiety worse and probably the anxiety even makes your pain worse too.

Thanks for sharing! Please don't beat yourself for sharing your struggles here. We all have those days when the worries in our lives wrap it's tentacles around our brain. Our minds jump to the worst case scenario and we become incapable of enjoying anything or anyone! I just want to remind you that all our worries and anxieties cannot change anything out there. I am learning that I am not a god & I have no control over things outside of myself. I am only responsible for my thoughts and my actions. So, I am learning to give up trying to control what goes on around me ie people & circumstances. It's a slow process, but it does get easier. I encourage you to not give up. The greatest mystery in life is that through suffering we mature & become beautiful. So, hang in there! Take a deep breath and take the next step. You are not alone. You are much loved <3
