Starting to go crazy? Maybe? Haha

Posted , 7 users are following.

I was a bit anxious today.. I then told myself to man up and shut up about it. So I'm getting ready, and all of a sudden I feel a palp. Bothered me a bit, but whatever.. Well then I got super frustrated from a wardrobe malfunction (im not usually a diva I swear lol) and had a string of flutters. In front of everyone, I smacked my chest and yelled "I'm done with this, stop it already". I came off completely insane, but it was nice finally feeling like I actually "stood up" to anxiety for the first time in a while.. My point is, don't give up and make sure you just fight back, especially on your bad days.. (coincidentally enough, they haven't been back.. Chased them away maybe?) haha. Hope everyone had a good day!

    That is exactly the way to treat it. I yell , oh no you dont...you aren't real, so shut up and get lost. works every time. Sometimes just...oh no you don't is enough. I'm sorry to have missed it, Honey. I would have cheered you on

    Well done on banishing the palpitation.

    I have found since i have been having CBTand the advice of a brilliant doctor I understand the process my body is going through and because i understand it I can cope with it a lot better. in fact last night in  a meeting a chap pulled me to one side my friends  son he said he had been experiencing sharp pains on the front to his left side. I knew a little that he suffered anxiety but didnt realise he had ocd as well I checked the relevant questions did he have pain in his arm neck jaw no was the answer he said he couldnt be anxiety well i did know for a fact that i too have suffered stabbing pains there for years they come and go. I asked if he suffered gas build up no he replied again then his mum came out she informed me that he had just finished three nights of nights and his nerves were playing up. well to cut this story short it was humbling to be able to help him and explain he wasnt going to die apparently after about twenty minutes his pain had eased off. In a way talking to him and supporting others on here i find it helps me because i can share my experience and hopefully it gives comfort to others on here and support them. im in a better place at the moment so its humbling to support those that are not. I still get my "blip days" my only concern I have is for four nights i have been having upsetting dreams where I or my daughter are either being chased or stalked and I dont know why may my CBT therapist can help when I see her friday anyway if you are in the uk have a good bank holiday for the rest of our friends on here have a good monday

      I have no idea what this will mean to you, but here I go. For years the psychologists have stated that everyone in our dreams, no matter how they present themselves....are all us, (the dreamer) What do you think?

    I have actually done this several times to where my breast bone is sore it's just we get drivin to that point and it's too much. I'm tired of all this crap and not a moment of peace, I'm glad you was able to get them to stop and not let it beat you.
