Night time.

Posted , 3 users are following.

Im finding that I'm tearing up alot more at night or wanting to cry alot more then I have done for a while. It has been a crappy week with work, and there's a few other issues that I'm trying to get sorted, which I know is a good thing, but at usual I overthink things. It's just so annoying, and I do wish I could be like i used to be. I have become isolated recently and find myself at home in the evenings wishing there was something for me to do consistently, but not usually having the money or time as I've tried to change my avalibillty with work already, but they wouldn't allow me.I know that once I start uni again walking out would be an option so it'll give me the opportunity to find a more suited job for me and give me time to find activities to do without being restricted on time, but that of course could mean more problems, but this job isn't helping with my anxiety or my conifdence I feel. I hate not having the confidences I used to and doing what i know I should.

    Hey Kyaroru90463, 

    Sorry to hear how you are feeling at the minute, sounds like you are having a pretty rough time with things.

    What you are feeling right now sounds pretty normal to me and the combination of having a great deal of time on your hands to stress about things along with the fact that in the evening we tend to become more mentally and physically tired could sum up why you feel like you do. 

    It sounds to me like you seem to know how to sort it yourself. My anxiety was slightly different but never the less keeping myself busy gave me less time to sit and allow my mind to go into overdrive which helped me get back on track again. Life is pretty stressful and having the time to sit and stew on the bad things can make things appear a hell of a lot worse and it can get on top of us and stuff.

    My anxiety was related to my health so I hit it face on. I sat reading up on anxiety and how it impacts the body and stuff and not only did it help me get on top of everything but it also got me hooked on it all and I found myself going back to Uni to study and now I work for the Ambulance service which is mega crazy. I still have the odd off day but the majority of the time I am fine and on top of everything and I can laugh at how I used to be at times. 

    Sooo yeah my advice would be to find something new to do that really gets your brain working, it can be anything what so ever and it doesn't even have to cost money! It could be something online or local groups or anything. Just something to tie up a bit more time and get your brain working which leaves less time for you to sit and allow your mind to go into overdrive. 

    I'm not saying this is the answer for everyone but it worked for me. Anyway if you need to chat some more or have any questions then feel free to message me. 

    Keeo your head up :-)

    Yeah I can relate to that completely! I felt tired loads and I found it really difficult to concentrate at first and became really irritable and stuff. I couldn't concentrate on TV, I didn't really want to do anything or go anywhere but I knew I had to keep trying and I fought it bit by bit and eventually won control again. 

    It's hard when you are mentally and physically tired out and drained but you haven't always been like this have you? Remember how you used to be and how you want to be like that again? It is really difficult I know as I felt it but I fought it and in the end I began to beat it and I don't consider myself to be the strongest person in the world but I did it and so can others x

    I feel nothing wrong in crying, but if possible try not to be alone. Be with friends, or family, try to to with someone you can talk out your inner feeling.
