  • Do you think you might benefit by speaking with a counselor/therapist? It sounds like maybe something in your subconscious is triggering all this... and sometimes speaking with someone (professional) can TELL the subconscious "I am willing to see what this is and face it"... even though you may think there is 'nothing there' to look at. ...or we think "I've handled that, so that can't be it" ... Sometimes we just try to fool ourselves and not admit to our TRUE feelings...

    I am so glad you are enjoying your new job!! Good :) ...and best wishes to you.

  • i think you have hit the nail on the head there..

    yes i bottle alot and lots of unfortunate things have happened in my past..

    i am thinking about talking to someone.

    yesv i love my job but getting there is hard.

    Dr has signed me off for a week not sure if thats a good thing or not.

    thanks for the reply Betty :)

  • Breathing helps me a lot. Mindfulness meditation is also helpful. While in the car if I feel a rise in anxiety I just start to slowly breath in and exhale on an 8 count. I also tighten my thigh muscles. It helps me.
