Keeping a diary

Hi all, hope I find you all well

I've been keeping a diary for the last week and aim to keep it going as long as my symptoms persist.

I'm making it as brutally honest as I can with some very colourful language that really is how I am feeling. Hopefully it doesn't become a long drawn out diary (the quicker it finishes the faster I've gotten over the anxiety) lol

If anyone would like I would be happy to share it although as I said it may not be suitable for most on here.

Symptoms are still persistent and varying I've started getting a burning sensation under my skin now and sometimes when I wake I have prickly hands and feet, this all adds to the other symptoms I have been having.

Just wanna feel normal now!!!

Anyway thanks for the opportunity to vent my anxiety it definitely helps.

hey, undesirable? a bit too harsh.. anyway i think that keeping an honest diary could be helpful, just remember you are NOT your symptoms.


Hi thanks for the reply,

The name is in no way an indication of how I feel lol its just a nickname I gave myself for this site.

Hope your well and thanks again for taking the time to answer me


thanks, i used to be not well at all and i started yoga with Teacher, i am not with her by the way any more. She taught me a lot though. majority of it was about empowering yourself.



I too keep a diary, which my CBT therapist gave me. I have found a lot about myself in writing my deepest thoughts. xx
