I just want to go to the beach … it’s hard to explain how I feel… but need to try

Starrlight profile image

I am having trouble with my emotions. Mood swings. All tangled up. Scary. Jumbled. Intrusive thoughts racing and I feel I’m trying to get to a spot which will tell the root of the problem , the problem that I can’t view so far. I’m feeling guilt but nothing attached to it for reasoning that I can gather. Need motivation and need activity. But I just feel like I am frozen.

Feel a bit like that right now too, something holding me back

Do you think it’s fear of future?

Only immediate future in my case. Family event soon. Have a bit of worry around it. Is often a fear of people in my case too.

Is your family event tonight or another day? I get scared of people too.

I think so. I am realizing that this magical summer I have on my mind will come to an end and I’m preparing myself for homeschooling my kiddos. Just a bit intimidating

I always found impending Autumn and back to school daunting too

Starrlight in reply to Roxylox

Yeah. Thanks I guess there are good things about Autumn too. I’m trying to enjoy the summer but there’s a lot to do to prepare,… so it’s just stressful. How are you thinking Saturday may go? Are there people who are hard to be around?

People who haven't been nice to me in the recent past, all behind my back. I'll just have to put on a fake smile. Hope they will at least pretend to be nice tome on tbe day That will do me. My expectations are not too high.

Wait what!? So people are treating you badly. Where and what are they saying? I would confront them rather than fake a smile. That’s just me though

Stuff to do the past its complicated. Family involved so feel the need to be nice. Hope you are feeling better now

Maybe a long walk -- natural motion -- elementary progress?

Good idea

Remember, small steps! Bit by bit things add up and it helps to make things feel less overwhelming or futile when you get a little bit of success, then build on it. Some days just suck though, and that's fine... they can suck, then find a shallow grave and stay there to make room for the nicer ones 🙃

thanks v much

Are you an artist as well as a nature lover?

Dear Starrlight, If the beach is your place to go, that's great that it is close to you. You are turning inwards and trying to understand what is going on. If you have labeled your feeling or emotion "guilt" but you can't find a reason for it, perhaps you have mis-identified the feeling. Dig deeper. Where do you feel it in your body? How do you name the feeling? I'm probably too late for today but - next time.

Yeah I think I am anxious. I didn’t do anything wrong so… not guilt. I’m tapering off a strong med so I feel off. I feel anxiety rushing through my body. So tired of this.

Thanks for your care and help

You do have some anxiety-causing thoughts (it might be an idea to just do something small to prepare for next term) but it might be cortisol rushing through your body. It's really annoying. I hope you will be able to see your GP about this soon and maybe get something to calm it down, as there may be a medical reason for it. In the meantime, be kind to yourself.

I’m sure it’s that I’m tapering off an anxiety med ugh
