Hi Everyone.

I am having a tough day. I am having a hard time putting my thoughts together for this. I feel like my mind is overwhelming me. When I tried to mediate and calm myself with mindfulness, I found myself thinking about how calm I could be if I just stopped. There would be no trying to catch my breath, no pit in my stomach or heart throbbing, and best of all thoughts would no longer race through my mind.

I took the headphones off and took a cold shower trying to numb the thoughts away.

What is going on. I feel...idk beaten

I'm sorry it's such a rough day for you. I too am struggling with feelings of being overwhelmed, although it's nothing specific. Anyway, just a suggestion, perhaps some type of movement meditation may help. I find when the anxiety is in overdrive that soothing movement like walking, yoga or just dancing by myself to relaxing music helps clear out the overwhelming "energy" of the anxiety. I guess because it brings focus to the movement rather than thoughts.

Hello Elizabeth, did something bad happen recently that triggered this feeling of being "beaten", or have you felt like this most of your life and it's just recently gotten worse? Knowing a little more might assist the group in providing helpful advice on feeling overwhelmed, racing thoughts, and pounding heart. It sounds like anxiety to me which is the worst feeling in the world. Stay strong and let us help you.
