Making effort

Today has been a rough day. My tummy has been cranking up for the past few days, nausea, belching and bloating. Started to freak out after I vomited out my breakfast. Sensing my anxiety is kicking in, I immediately went to my bed and did breathing relaxation exercise with my music for anxiety. It was tough trying to preventing myself from being overwhelmed by the worrying and scary thoughts running in my mind. After 3+ hours of effort (listening to music for anxiety, reading, breathing exercises and writing my diary), I cried it all out. All these made me really tired. Now still worrying about my tummy and a dull feeling of fear. Still making effort to not give in to my fear.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Im sure the crying tapped out a lot of that blasted anxiety that was trapped down there. Anxiety is emotion and emotion is energy. Sometimes if we push it down too much, our bodies want it OUT. Crying, while maybe not pleasant may have been just what you needed to get that nasty energy out. Congratulate yourself and imagine yourself saying "Take that you beast anxiety. Hah! I managed to get some of you out and there is nothing you can do about it". You can even think silly thought of the anxiety desperately trying to hang onto your cheeks as your tears rolled down. But nope, you got those suckers out!! You won a little battle with it today. Pat yourself on the back.
