I have been taking medications for generalised anxiety disorder for over an year. Results have been zig zag and thus started therapy last week.
Issues I face are anxiety physical symptoms such as lightheadedness, tingling in feet, dry mouth, burning eyes etc. which result in more anxiety.
I eat on time and drink plenty of fluids. I meditate and work out. Of late, I have started to maintain a regular sleep pattern. I also keep a journal of daily life. This has helped in preventing panic attacks to an extent.
At times, I feel really tired due to anxiety but the thing I remind myself is "I have done it before and if I could do it then I can do it now".
This poem from the movie Grey inspires me to forgot about what has happended in the past or what lies in the future but the present is in our hands. Keep taking your meds, continue your therapy, connect with your family & friends and most importantly be grateful.
"Once more into the fray. Into the last good fight I'll ever know. Live and die on this day. Live and die on this day".
Is there anyone fighting generalised anxiety disorder? Please share your story and the coping mechanism that works for you.
