Anxiety and depression like to lie to you, make you feel like there is something wrong with you. It's a horrible feeling, but I promise that that there is nothing wrong with you! It sucks that we have to deal with those things. Just remember that as sure as anxiety will show up, so will relief..remember to breathe and try to distract yourself. I'll keep you in my prayers!

Yess i hope thats the case cause i been making my brain think i have ringing in my ear when I don’t and my brain makes me believe i do cause i heard about “tinnitus” and now i think i have it my mind is like that I always think myself into things and i hate it so much . I know everything takes time i just got to focus on the good and not the bad , thank you for your words ❤️🙏🏻

You're very welcome! I'm sorry you have to go through this, I hate it too. It happens to me all the time. I'm always thinking there's something wrong when there isn't. I'm just glad we have this group, everyone is so supportive!

Thanks for the prayers it really means alot to me ❤️

You are not alone! I am gong through the same thing right now! Pray or meditate hard! That has been helping me and I haven’t been keeping anything inside. If you have someone you trust—- tell them how you feel. Cry if you have to just let it out. l wake up shaking and scared but lm so blessed to have a support system and this app is amazing bc ppl are so supportive. My anxiety started last week too and these past few days have been soooo hard. Keep reassuring yourself that you will get through this bc you will! I know this feeling is only temporary I know it comes and goes but I keep telling myself I am in control and my CREATOR is too! Blessings to you!

It’s the worst and sometimes i do feel like crying but it wont come out i guess because im just so use to the tears that I can’t cry anymore:( but i agree this app is totally amazing its helped me alot im so thankful for everyone on here ❤️ thanks for your kind words 🙏🏻❤️

Hey there, I was in a similar place just a few days ago. I was doing really well managing my anxiety and depression consistently but had a bit of a struggle again recently so I know exactly how you're feeling. Depression and Anxiety is actually pretty common. "Normal" is a cliche society has made up to alienate people. At the end of the day, you're supported and others are going through a similar kind of pain (although each individual story is different)

I'm so sorry you're feeling this way, I know it sucks so bad when things seem to be going great and all of a sudden everything comes crashing down. However, this pain won't last. Why? Because you are loved, you are cherished, and nothing is wrong with you. You're much stronger than you think.

What has been helping me whenever I feel those emotions stirring is that I try to motivate and hype myself up for every little thing that I've done. For instance, when I find it hard to get out of bed in the morning, I try to interupt the thoughts and think "Well, all you gotta do is throw the covers off first..that's it, you can do that ,its so easy!" and then when the covers come off I think "Omg you're amazing! You couldn't even do that yesterday... Maybe now you can sit up in bed?" I literally cheer myself on every step of the way and before I know it, I'm completely out of bed and I hype myself up the hardest there because I know that doesn't happen often either.

I also post mantras on sticky notes all over my room so that when anxiety comes up (or right after I've gotten out of bed), I try to find and read one sticky note. It helps me feel better and grounded. Remember, an object in motion stays in motion. It all starts with one small step. That's a lot to read, but I hope this technique helps you.

Stay strong, sending you a bigggg hug !

YES i was doing fine up until i got my ear infection and my body when into full on panic mode :( this is what happened years back i got sick and my body went into full on panic it happens alot because I barely get sick and when i do everything just comes to me all at once it’s like never ending and extremely exhausting 😩 thank you for taking your time to write to me it means alot ❤️🙏🏻

You are not alone. My health triggers the worst anxiety/panic. Keep fighting, you’re going to make it to the other side better and stronger than before. ❤️

I will continue on fighting i know i can get better i done it before i can do it again it just takes me a while to get out of this state im in 😓

For sure, it’s totally understandable that it will take time. Take it easy on yourself ☺️
