Progress report this morning.
Went to bed last night and feel alseep, was woken around 2am by noise outside, but didn't go into panic mood. I could hear a low base sound from next door, instead of my usual fearful reaction, I stopped and put the techniques I have learnt into practise.
I thought about the noise, was it causing me any great distress, no. I faced my fear.
I accepted that although I was not annoyed my OH would be, so I accepted he would start complaining, which he did but I told him to use his ear plugs.
I allowed myself to float past hubbys complaining, accepted the fact he is annoyed by noise not me. So I am not anxious about noise, I am anxious about his reaction to it. I actually think he likes getting grumpy, lol.
So now I have to let time pass, I still wait up anxious but I have read that is a common thing and will go as my nerves stop being overly sensitive.
I have learnt to stop worrying about tomorrow, now I have to learn to stop worrying about tonight, this afternoon, or the next hour, or minute. But I am making progress
I hope everyone else is making some too x
