The joys of anxiety!

Figured I should update. I don’t even think I’ve written in my journal this week! Haven’t really thought to or been lazy. But its been a rough week with work. Hopefully this week will be better! Just gotta try harder! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Today been struggling a bit. Mostly with anxiety and stuff. Partly its cause my period should be coming soon. Also I did take my medications later (for depression and anxiety and stuff). I’m used to taking it at like 4:30 am, I took it around noonish. ๐Ÿ˜… So probably a bit of everything. However, I mostly been doing okay dealing with it. Just been telling myself to calm down.

I’ve found this quote helpful from Tiny Budda.com:

โ€œWhen you canโ€™t control whatโ€™s happening, challenge yourself to control how you respond to whatโ€™s happening. Thatโ€™s where your power is.โ€ – Unknown –

Its got me all over it! ๐Ÿ˜† But I keep thinking of it today and I found it helps. That and trying just to ignore stuff.

Also the same site has an interesting book on worries. More info here. Tempted to try it, but not quite sure if its for me. Plus I do have a lot of journals as it is. ๐Ÿ˜… I do follow their twitter and like some of the quotes they post.

I am at least nearly done with all my chores. Just a few more to finish up and all done. Its nice to be done a little bit eariar then usual.

I’d like to watch some Magic Knight Rayearth, but probably won’t happen. Hopefully can at least fit in catching up on reading “Precious Moments Holy Bible” though!

Anxiety has been eating me alive lately as well. Makes it hard to function on some days and it’s absolutely soul crushing, but I just need to remember to take my time. I’m not on any medication at the moment, but I’m wondering if I should.

Yeah, that’s how it can feel sometimes. I guess if you’re unsure talk to a doctor?

Damn, anxiety is such a pain to deal with. I remember the days in grad school when I couldn’t function at all because of anxiety, and that’s one of the things I really wouldn’t wish on anyone ๐Ÿ˜ I’m sorry to hear that you’re struggling, but I’m glad that you’re doing a bit better after seeing that quote ๐Ÿ™‚

Aw, I’m sorry you had to deal with it as well! Thank you!

I feel like anxiety is so normal nowadays. If you don’t have anxiety, you’re either an extreme extrovert or you’re in denial. I say this half-jokingly, of course. :p

Haha, sadly it is kinda true. You hear about anxiety a lot more these days then you used to.

I’m so sorry that you’ve been feeling like this. I hope that you find some peace and calmness soon! Whenever I’m anxious, I spend some time breathing in and out and focusing on that until the anxiety passes.

Sending you positive vibes!

Thanks for the tip. I do know that sometimes deep breathing does help. When I bother to do it. XD Anyway, thanks so much!

I don’t take medication for depression or anxiety anymore but I did for almost 15 years and I found that if I didn’t keep to a strict schedule with them that even being late a few hours could cause them to not work at their best. I was bad sometimes and missed or skipped doses or wouldn’t remember till hours later. They don’t work very well that way, unfortunately ๐Ÿ™

I love that quote it is so true! Sometimes you can’t control a situation but you can always control how you react to it. And that’s where the real power lies. It’s always a growing and learning experience and all we can do is our best.

I tend to blog about whatever is on my mind and my blog has lots of photos and things I like to do and places I go but honestly blogging for the sake of getting those emotions and feelings out there was one thing that always made a huge difference to me. My emotional state of mind depended on it a lot of times. Sometimes if I had something controversial or I just didn’t want comments. I would just turn them off for the post.

Yeah, I have a bad habit of doing that when I don’t work. Otherwise I take them almost first thing in the morning.

Yeah, I like that quote too! Love quotes!

Anxiety is the worst and depression is too, and I even take anxiety meds to help me a lot of the time. It sucks but in the end, it’s best to take a deep breath and practice what is called DBT, it is meant to help you with coping skills and anxiety as well.

It’s very useful and while I’ve been working which is still unfamiliar to me after so many years, I do know that it has helped me.

I hope that you can look into and see if it can help you.

Yeah, I find that deep breathing sometimes help. Hard to remember to do it when I need it though.
