I try to keep busy, remind myself it will pass and usually I just have think through the anxiety. Work through the scary, unknown, thoughts that race through my mind. Then choose my best and or only alternative and I take a nap from the exhaustion of the long drawn out process. It is overwhelming, I know.

So when you keep yourself busy it goes? And how long you’ve had your anxiety?

It started from childhood trauma and I didn't know I had it till late in life. I just thought everyone was like me. I started to realize there was healthy coping methods. I was choosing healthy and unhealthy coping methods, more unhealthy because I just didn't know. I knew I had complex ptsd, I just didn't understand it. I keep busy with the usual life distractions. When those aren't happening, I feel anxious and then depressed. The more I understand this mental health illness, the more I figure out ways to keep high anxiety at bay. I will probably always have high anxiety and depression. I just need to remember, I am okay, I am in control. Some situations can't be fully controlled and I just need to be okay with that. I figure I have such a control issue because when I was a child, my control was taken from me and I mean in the non normal childhood control. My mind needs, wants to make sense of everything. If my mind can't make sense, I feel I am losing control over the situation and our regular, normal anxiety goes through the roof. My heart is going to jump out of my chest till my mind races for a answer. If I can't find a answer, my mind shuts down and I slip into a depression because my brain is exhausted. I am trying to remember always, that when my high anxiety is kicking in. I need to remember, I am okay and I can't always control every situation around me. I am just starting to try this coping method. I hope it helps, high anxiety and then the depression are so difficult to shake out of my mind, omg days, weeks and longer. I hope I answered your question, questions. Posting, getting feedback on here and reading other posts and replying etc has been a healthy coping method :)
