Today when I woke up I felt about as awful as I can feel from anxiety. Nothing felt real, my heart was racing, I was nauseous and dizzy and disoriented. I thought I was going to spend the whole day in bed feeling sick and asking my boyfriend for help or to take me to the hospital. But then I realized no. I didn't want to have a bad day. So I ignored all of my symptoms (and they stayed bad for a while) and I took a shower, got ready, ate and took my dog outside all while feeling awful and scared. But slowly as I got more and more productive the anxiety started to disappear. I was able to go to the eye doctor with my boyfriend and help him pick out some glasses without feeling sick or scared. Then I went shopping with my friend at the mall and she came back to my house to watch a movie. Now I have almost no anxiety. I feel pretty content. from now on I'm going to try, no matter how terrible and scary my symptoms get, to just ignore them and go about my day. Eventually maybe they'll go away altogether!
