the issues that i had on my first uh post have faded however i now have other issues. mainly acid reflux and a problem swallowing air which leads to it being trapped in my throat. whenever my body acts up i try to tell myself that it's only the reflux and air but i can't help but have obsessive thoughts telling me i'm going to die. the night before last or some time around then i was sure i was in the middle of a heart attack. thankfully, i was able to speak with my best bud the whole time and calm down after some hours. how does everyone else deal with that? simply telling myself i won't die or that it's a smaller issue doesn't help very much and i become anxious regardless which quickens my heart rate and worsens the thoughts.
a few things have lifted my spirits recently and i've been making an effort to be happier but i have a fear that things will go wrong. it's very nagging and i wish it'd stop. i'm really doing my best here but brains don't seem to listen to you, do they?
