Feeling hopeful

I can sense a little each day that things are getting better. I may have heart flutters and butterflies in my somach or little aches and pains....but i keep going. I get up, dress and make plans for the day. The discomfort of anxiety is only that, simply discomfort...i keep moving and finding things i enjoy. I am working to accept the anxiety and letting time pass and all the while going about living. I take anxiety meds and they also help.

I felt a big improvement made recently when i was out one evening during a trip with my sisters. We were coming back to the hotel and i felt panicked an uncomfortable. They wanted to sit in the lounge and i wanted to curl up in the hotel room. But, i found the strength inside me to stay and not retreat to the room, it passed, i was ok, i did it!

There is hope...may you find encouragement and your own inner strength.
