Ok I woke up this morning I was ok. I ate about 11 and then went back to bed actually took a nap woke up then took another nap. The most I've done in months as far as sleep goes. Ate again about 2 pm. I'm doing all I can to get my appetite back and sleep back. No good sleep or appetite for over two months now. Now my mind and body is paying for it. Well I was ok while in the house. But as soon as I had to leave to get the kids, and I had to stop to the store. There It Was I Felt lightheaded a bit, moderate weakness like I had to walk slow or my legs would give out, muscles feel tight in my calf and legs, a bit of detached feeling, so of course my mind just went to the same old thoughts which I'm sure brought on more anxiety. It's like I'm trying so hard to accept the fact that anxiety can do this but it's so hard when the physical symptoms step in. Now I'm home feeling a bit down again, thoughts kind of all over the place. Is this really the life of generalized anxiety disorder? Can this just come when it wants? I've tried rationalizing my thoughts by saying ok my body did lose most of its strength from being malnutrition so maybe this is why my muscles feel week. I even said ok, stress may have brought these headaches on instead thinking it's a brain tumor or something else, I'm really trying here but it's so hard. Now I'm home trying to push through these those which now anxiety is on me. Will my body and brain do like a reset to get back to normal? I'm trying to eat so I won't lose weight, I trying to get back to a better sleeping pattern so my brain can rejuvenate. Can I? How long did it take for you all to get back?
