Finally! No anxiety

Since I have been keeping you up on the anxiety battle this week, I have finally pushed past it! When I woke up this morning I had a crushing sense of anxiety and it incredibly frustrating. All I wanted to do was stay curled up in bed and remain there for the rest of the morning. However, I knew I needed to continue onward with my day and make sure the anxiety wouldn’t control me. I decided, with the encouragement of my husband, to work out and see if that would help take away the tightness in my chest. I worked out for a while and began to feel that anxiety lift away. I then had a hair appointment, which I love, and I was able to just have girl talk and enjoy being pampered. I am now anxiety free once again! It has been such a long week of battling this anxious feeling. I am so happy I am finally back on the other side of the hill. 🙂

  1. oh I understand this struggle all to well. I spent most of the summer last year in that state of “I don’t want to get out of the bed”, in fact most days that I worked I’d get out of the bed to slog my way to work then get back in it when work was over. I slowly got better after that madness and haven’t been that bad since, but there’s always that thought in the back of my head like when am I going to lose my mind next?

  2. I remember the years of “forcing” myself to do things in the face of anxiety. It is exhausting. Just wait until you get to the point where you do things that once made you anxious without realizing that they once made you anxious.

    Driving long distances would ignite my anxiety. Recently, I drove roughly 200 miles. It wasn’t until some time after I got home from that trip that I realized that I did not panic once. Those are the moments that make me smile.

    In some ways anxiety can be a blessing. It makes the person suffering appreciate the little things again. Heck, I still pat myself on the back for not checking my pulse every 10 minutes, or looking up symptoms on WebMD.

    Never forget to praise yourself for the little things. I love reading anxiety successes, and yours seems like a great one. Keep us posted.
