I've slipped again!!!

Okay so my anxiety is back but not like before. I'm not worried about anything in particular but still have this feeling like something's not quite right. I also feel like I don't want to be alive anymore. Not that I want to kill myself but that if I got accidently hit by a car, it wouldn't be a bad thing. Meditation isn't helping, and unusually, I feel a lot better when I'm at work now. I don't get it. I was hating my job, got a new one, love it - problem solved. Now I don't know what the problem is. My own advice on dealing with this isn't working because I need to know what the problem is for that to work. How do I concentrate on the severity of my worries when I'm not really worried about anything specifically? This sucks :(

I know what you mean...I've been feeling that way for a while. I think it's part of the depression part of all this. It sucks because you want to fix what's wrong, but, you don't know where to start. It's frustrating.

What I suggest is to sit down and make a list of all your worries and problems and mark off all the ones that you have no power over or that are not real problems...think logically...and then number the ones left in order of priority or importance to you. Then start to deal with them one by one. That way it's not overwhelming.

Also, add cashews, raw almonds, dark green leafy veggies to your diet.

I havent got any problems now though. I hated my job before and now I love my new job. I feel fine when I'm at work, except for this constant knot inside. I owe my landlord money which I'm paying off after coming to an agreement and my health is okay other than a dodgy knee from an old accident. I don't have a reason for feeling like this. :(

Nope, that's just it. I'm lying in bed thinking of mountain biking trails or how to make money for a holiday. Other than that, I'm not worried about anything in specific. I don't get it

So I've woke up this morning with pain in my back and shoulders and the front of my left shoulder. I hate this :(

Hi All. I have been listening to a anxiety program which I listen to at home. The guy explains this as mind armies. You feel better then the old thought come back out the blue. But its not out the blue, its in the subconscious. It learned feelings and responses, and it too has to change. So sounds like you are doing the same. The guy says it will pass, so hang in there.
