You did just perfectly Lulu. I’ve been thinking of you and wishing you well. It’s helpful to be honest and to share the real feelings about the struggles going on. I was just thinking of how a lot of the time I cannot feel thankful at all. Right now is a time that I’ve gotten in a state of such anxiety that what I wrote one hour ago doesn’t apply anymore sadly. I’m so anxious about schooling once again as I’ve received new information and I’m sure you are tired of hearing it but it just is what it is and we work on these things we have trouble with the best we can and that’s okay.

The world is so different now , I can't cope either , different reasons but no doubt the same feeling of anxiety x

Yeah it really bothers me when I hear that the world will never go back to normal and it’s hitting me more now, the reality of it. My kids have bad asthma so I worry about that and if they were to get the virus... I took the wrong dose of meds by accident this morning and it’s really messing with me now.

Are you doing any better with your physical sickness? Did what the docs prescribe help you? I know you were suffering so much and I just hope things are improving some.

We are strong. We will get through all of this. Deep breaths. ❤️ ☮️

Yes it worked but was worse than giving birth and I had to contact my Doctor yesterday as things are all over the place system wise and she has said it can take up to 2 weeks to settle but of course I can't accept that and my anxiety is through the roof and some x

Oh wow that’s rough. I’m so sorry. Try to remember that it will pass. I know not so easy to believe, and we want it to be over with in a hurry, but I’m sure it will all work out just fine. I have been having what I think is IBS but it’s gone on for like a year and I’m too scared to see about it.

What is your favorite thing to do? Make sure you’re doing lots of it! I find that distractions are all I seem to have sometimes. Treat yourself if you can. You soooooo deserve it!!!

I should really have had things checked out but the fear stops me to

My anxiety has got to that stage where I just can't do anything I used to and just sit panicking all day but I hope it does pass

Thank You :-) x

Do you think as your body heals your anxiety level will drop?

O that was such a big hug it reached all the way over here , thank you :-)

Yes I feel it will go down as it hopefully gets sorted out but then as always with me something else will rear it's ugly head but this has been a bad one , more so than usual x

Since the anxiety is more than usual you should get a break soon I’m guessing. After every difficulty comes ease. I’m so tired. I know you are tired too. I wish for death yet I know this thought isn’t something I can act upon. It’s so frustrating to say the least.

I know something else seems to come up as the other gets resolved. Ugh

I’m glad that hug reached you lol that makes me happy...
