It's back!

Hi guys, haven't been in here for a while cos I've had a good run, almost been back like the old me buts anxiety is back with a vengeance!

Been awake all night giving Steve a total nightmare. Got counselling at 8. Feeling pretty anxious about it cos I think I'm ready to tell her what's up with me. Hoping she can help me.

Feeling like crap basically and I've not been doing my stay well strategies or look after myself. Need to stop wallowing in my own self pity.

Well come back Hun:)

Sorry you've had a blip... And that's what it is a blip.

You've done it before and you can do it again, just believe in yourself :)

It's good that your going to your counselling tonight, may be write down a few things that have been bothering you before you go.

I hope it goes well for you, you will get there again. Hugs xx



I think it is ok to feel sorry for ourselves now & again as long as we don't dwell on it for to long , suffering with anxiety can make us feel that way sometimes

You sound like you are been really hard on yourself because you have been doing really well & well done for that but like Yummi says this sounds like a little blip & we all have them !

I hope your counselling goes well & you get to tell her how you feel

Take Care





Hey you.

Sorry you havent been well the last little while, sounds like a little blip.

Trust me though I know all about the self pity, I do it too and I hate myself it, but sometimes I think we have to give ourselves a little pity in order to feel a bit better about situations we find ourselves in.

Hope it passes



Hi there. Try not to feel that you are back to square one. No you are not,

It's just a hiccough and a temporary thing. We all get good times which are

Anxiety free and then Bam.

Try and practice. The things you know will help you. Just pick yourself

And dust yourself down ....,

Think of how far you have come.

Gentle hugs xxx



Hi there

Sorry to hear you are going through a rough patch and I truly believe it is only a 'patch',I also had a long period where I felt happy and absolutely fine but last year I'm afraid anxiety reared it's ugly head again and I really felt a lot of despair but I got through it with the help of my partner and loving family and I'm sure it will be the same for you,hope all goes well for you ,sending massive hugs !!! Xxx


Thanks everyone. Counselling helped and I finally fessed up to some important stuff. Actually feel a lot better for it.


That's great and I am glad you feel better. Take care of yourself

Now too.

I'm sort of learning that slowly I think. Don't stop the positive thinks I do for my anxiety just cos I feel well. I'm a bugger for that ha ha. Ever the optimist that its gone for good.
