felt like i got the better of the anxiety today!!

was waiting again for the bus this morning and got the now all familiar feelings my stomach started churning and i started to shake but this time i really had, had enough and knew i had to go to work so i imagined that the voice telling me i should be scared because something terrible was going to happen to me on the bus was a nasty little demon sat on my shoulder and everytime i had that thought or feeling i told it to get lost as though i was talking to a person that was trying to intimidate me the thought came and i said in a casual cant be bothered way oh for god sake get lost, jog on im and in my mind i felt i stood up to it! im not saying the anxiety went completely but my attitude towards it certainly made me feel a bit more in control of it, it may not work every day but it worked today and every good day is a bonus at the moment. xx
