Anyone tired weak fighting scary feelings?

Starrlight profile image

I’m trying to figure out how to stay calm and not pay too close attention to my weird thoughts and feelings because it’s the anxiety acting up; it’s not reality... but then what is? How do I get to a perspective of truth? Logically I’m not in danger but my heart has been beating fast al morning and afternoon. I took propanolol with my usual meds but don’t know how much that helped, none it seems. I feel defeated for the day and I still need to take an important trip to kiddos school which in itself is anxiety provoking. I tried exercise tea and now I’m about to meditate in the sun ☀️ Any one have other ideas?

...Meditated. I’m waiting to get to and finish the stressor of the day and I’m trying picturing the event as a positive one because it’s always easier than I anticipate...

I’m very tired of living this way. People can support but no one can help me but me and I’m trying my best That’s all I can do. I pray night will seem to come soon ✨ 🌙

Starrlight, if you are having scary thoughts like I do often, they say don’t push them away or fight them. In OCD treatment it’s called exposure response prevention, meaning you have a thought, and you prevent yourself from responding with a compulsion. There’s a lot more info atThe OCDfoundation.

So could be worse right? My day went... I’m feeling better after getting all of my plans done and I can relax a little.

Thank you sooooooo ❤️ Not yet but one of these moments I’ll be able to relax. I’m anxious about something I need to do and I’m afraid anxiety will mess it all up.

Soooo much better
