New here... I now realize I have anxiety 🙁

Hello,

Feeling very drained and I’m waking up feeling like my heart is racing. I have the worst neighbors! They wake me up at 1 am and continue fighting and throwing things above me. Now the landlord gave us both letters to leave by June 15. I’m so stressed because I can’t find a place that is affordable. As a single mom, it’s not easy to do it all with so little time. I go to work exhausted each day because im sleep deprived. To make matters more challenging my kiddo has add so that can get draining at times. All my family is far away, and I’m on my own. I’m getting worried that my anxiety will get the best of me if I continue losing sleep. I get shaky at times, breathing changes ....once I felt heavy near chest area. Not sure if this is stress or anxiety. I do know it’s not normal. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Just read your post Lavender. I wonder if you have tried Yoga. I was poorly in my early years and found that if you can really get into Yoga you can make yourself relax. It is a wonderful thing also to be able to control your breathing.

I do hope that you are okay but if not see your doctor they are there for you, also they may know of such courses which you could try.

Love Hands.

I agree with Xena - if you need to take something to get sleep, take something. Too much sleep deprivation can be a very bad thing for your mental and physical health. Please make addressing it a priority. Big hug to you.

wondering why your land lord is asking you to leave it should just be the people above you maybe you can fight this?

Hello Lavender, I understand totally! I had and am having the same problem now with neighbors. Being woke up during the night etc!! It definitely adds to the anxiety symptoms! I agree with Hands. Yoga is great for breathing and relaxation. I have been using CBD oil for 8 months now, and it has helped tremendously. I hope you find some peace. We all deserve it. 💕

I went to hospital I was so stressed out by neighbors. My heart was skipping beats. So scary. Dr said I was fine. Had to believe him. Stress can do crazy things!!

I attended a brief talk on sleep & ear plugs or adding “white noise” in the background (such as a fan) was suggested. Would it be any quieter sleeping in another room in the house using these measures?
