Back again!

Been poorly the past few days with my anxiety! Thursday I bought a colouring book and some pencils.... Yeah I know I'm 19 but that's the best thing I've ever done! Everytime I feel anxious I get my book out and colour! I've gone through 50 pages out if a 70 page colouring book so I must be anxious a lot, I thought my partner was going to judge me and laugh at me because I had a colouring book but he actually started colouring in with me... It made me lAugh a little, I'm so glad I have him, he's my rock and my shoulder to lean on when I need him, always with me through thick and thin! :)

  • Hi,

    If thats what helps you then that is ok! Might go and buy one myself now or colour/paint by numbers could be good too. Have you tried writing down your anxiety/panic attacks when they happen? I do this and it helps take my mind off things and also a good indication of when they happen, why they happen, and what the triggers are. There is a website @ it has downloadable work sheets you can fill in. My psychologist gives me these and they have helped a lot. Hope this helps. Take care.
