Bad today and just need someone to understand

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi All

I have posted on site before but today really bad and just want someone to listen and reply.  Anxiety high - I think I know the reason - today I do not work so not with any company  and I dont like being alone.  Altough I know it is really illogical my brain sends me high, crying, stressed about being alone.  This happens every week and the night before I am ok and say to myself that today (Friday) will be different but again I wake up in a total mess.  Does anyone know how to deal with this.  How to turn my thought patterns around so that Fridays are looked forward too.  Thius has only been for last 2 months.

    Hi, Joyce I understand what your going through. My anxiety is high too, I don't like bing on my own. It is difficult, but we just have to get on with it,

    Hi Joyce,very sorry to hear this !have you tried reflexology? Or aromatherapy? Both very good for stress. Have you got a dog? Again good for calming. Do you listen to relaxation CDs? Regards Amanda

    Hi,

    You need to plan something for a friday.  It doesn't  have to be anything big or expensive but just something that gets you out.  You can try going to a movie ( it's totally ok to go to a movie alone), going to a museum, just going to a different park then for a coffee.

     I know its incredibly hard to motivate yourself when anxious but give it it a try, when I'm totally stressed I make myself go to the park so that I don't sit in and get in to a total frenzy.

    Hi All thanks for your advice

    Amanda yes I have a dog and took her for her walk this morning.

    Alice I went into work for a few hours as I owed some time back, then went to shops to purchase yet more items to stick in the wardrobe but was totally devoid of feeling, I used to go to the cinema by myself so no problems there.

    I have just managed to eat a scrambled egg for lunch, first thing I've eaten today Thankk you to everyonex
