I was just about to write this blog when I noticed Kevin's note on positive thinking so this ties in well with Kevin's entry
I have found this site and its members to be so helpful through my anxiety. I had a terrible day yesterday and just writing about it and asking questions knowing I wasn't alone was such a help that by the end of the day I felt OK.
I think anxiety can make you feel very alone. It's one of those things where if you haven't experienced it, it's a very hard thing to understand, so to have like minded people in one place is fantastic. So thank you all. I might not know you personally but having you all to talk to and to read your experiences is great.
Today is a better day for me. I had a long walk last night which felt good, and my appetite seems to be kicking around today I also made plans to meet a friend after work which will be the first time I've been out socially in a while. I plan to stick to the mocktails and am actually looking forward to it
Also on the plus side, as I've had to give up my caffeine and have completely gone off/have avoided alcohol, I'm actually feeling better that I don't have them in my system. I've also decided to start Yoga.
Although anxiety is a horrible thing to have and some days are unbearable, I think it's actually given me a bit of a kick that I've always needed. I just hope these positive feelings keep getting stronger
Hope everyone is well. xxx
