Feeling Uncomfortable

Do you ever just sit there when you’re alone and if your mind seems “too calm” or you feel “zoned out or blank” you get yourself into a panic thinking something must be up? I do this but in my case I get a worry that I’ll have a health issue happen to me when nobody is home. I feel so scared and uncomfortable the majority of the day being alone.

I don’t get good enough sleep at night and I have a fear of sleeping in the day time when nobody is home to be with me. I was helping a family member study for their job interview until past midnight last night so I didn’t get the sleep I had hoped again. Is this all normal or is something wrong with me? I’m always uncomfortable and feel better writing it out in words for people to see. Thank u

I have bad health anxiety so I have a huge fear of stroke. I’m home by myself 11 hours/day and always worry this would happen and I wouldn’t be able to get help 😣

Then keep a phone on your person all the time incase you need to ring for help. Make sure you exercise even if you just walk.

Hello, again Jacknjills. Think you know the answer to your own question this time. You stayed up too late, didn' get the sleep you require and that affects you. Otherwise the issues you are facing today you have shared frequently. Rather think it's time to for you to consider starting to writing in a journal. It is helpful for many people.

You know that it helps to write your posts, even if there are no replies. Just think what a journal might do for you. Also, really consider what you can be doing to get yourself out of the house if you are feeling uncomfortable being by yourself.

Is there a mall near you where you can just walk around inside safely where there are other people and some window shopping to distract you? That helps me sometimes.

Really think it maybe is time for you to empower yourself by taking action to start eating the "whales" that are bothering you. Know how you eat a whale? One bite at a time.

So put a few dollars in your pocket, get out of the house to the mall or another place you can go; get a friend or uber to take you if you don't have bus service or a car. The small amount of money is for a drink or something small to eat when you are at your destination. Time to put on your happy shoes, a bit of lipstick and taking a "bite or two" out of your "whales" :)

We'll allstill be here for you. But it's time know for you to take action and let us know how it goes,ok? xx :)

Hi HearYou,

I know..I was helping my family member study last night until almost Midnight because it’s a 5 hour interview for being promoted at her job called a “Grill” I was really upset I couldn’t go to sleep earlier. I sometimes used to go to sleep as early as 9:30pm. I’d love that. I never used to be this affected by lack of sleep that’s why I always worry it’s a health issue or something major that’s not anxiety. I have this quite frequently though so everyone tells me to just ignore it cause it’s anxiety.

I understand and it’s funny that you say that...I go out every night almost with my family and I feel pretty normal for the most part :) I enjoy going out it’s just I haven’t went out alone in a long time because I am a bit fearful of what would happen if I had a health issue or something and couldn’t call for help. It scares me quite a bit. I have a huge fear of having a stroke I’m not sure why.

My family and I are going to the Toronto Christmas Market tomorrow Night together. I can’t wait it’s all outdoors and it’s got beautiful lights and music and food etc. We got a bit of snowfall today for the 1st time here in Ontario, Canada so it’s a bit chilly out now.

Yesterday I had some good points in my day where I was really happy so I wrote those good things in a Note on my phone to highlight those points in my day.

Thank you very much for your help and encouragement xx

OK, but you are still creating other posts about bad things in your life and people are replying. I don't understand why you are still frequently creating more posts when you tell me things are really good for you at the moment. I'm confused.

If I go through something I can post as much as I want to. Don’t comment if you don’t like it hen please. It gives me comfort to write it on here whenever I am going through it I’m not asking for you to reply. Thank you

Jacknjill, you are always welcome to post, but please be honest with me ok? Please don't take advantage of my efforts to help when you ask for something in your posts. Now you are trying to shut me out by being mean and basically telling me to go away. What's going on? Do you have no respect for my efforts? You did this with another venue member, but I thought that was just a mistake in understanding. I am very confused.
