Today I feel positive
Yesterday I woke up and had enough of anxiety. I had enough of worrying and feeling dizzy, sick, sweaty and ultimately powerless. I decided to say to myself "fine I am anxious, I don't feel great, so what?". It made me feel so much better because I was fed up of fighting it and I accepted it. I also became trusting of my heart. I ran for the bus yesterday and had a few palpitations but I just said "okay I'm having palps but these are normal, they happen to everyone and I have been really stressed recently which is probably why I was having them in the first place" and they went away! Then I went to dinner and realised I had left my medicine at my flat. I got really worried incase I needed them but realised I hadn't taken them in weeks and therefore knew I didn't need them and if I had a panic attack I know that with the right mentality and positive thinking i would be able to stop it. In actual fact, with such positive thinking I didn't even have one and I slept like a baby.
My point is the key to getting rid of your anxiety is to punch it's negative little face with your powerful positive fist. Literally. When you feel so crap and your inner voice is screaming scary things like "your heart is going to pop", "you can't do this", tell it where to go, tell it you are more powerful than it, tell it that you can do this and you don't need to worry.
Positive thinking takes time but if you really get into the habit of taking a positive outlook on everything and teaching your inner voice to speak positively, there is no greater medicine for anxiety.
I am not 100% over my anxiety, but I am really getting there because I am so much more of a positive person.
