Reblogging ‘er 😊
Love it! <3
Anxiety. Nothing seems to help.
What is the source of that anxiety?
The source is a situation I found myself in when I was in Afghanistan. It was a bad day, to say the least.
How much time ago was that?
October 2nd, 2008.
Wow! It’s been a while…
Unfortunately, some things can’t be undone.
Getting my ideas (my blog and the business I’m trying to build) across to people.
To fix it, I think I need to stop being so damn introverted, but it’s not easy!
Oh I feel this ! I wish I could reach out a lot easier too haha but it’s nerve wracking sometimes
Yeah. But we can keep trying.
I’m not sure if being introverted is the issue, or the fact that you’re afraid of being judged…
Yeah, partly for fear of judgment.
But introversion too is a causal factor.
My anxiety and what I am doing is writing and exercising and talking about it. It’s a struggle but I’m doing all I can to overcome this and deal with it well
Anxiety is indeed a big issue… How do you feel since you started dealing with it?
It’s a struggle. Some days are worse than others but it’s hard because sometimes no matter what you do it won’t go away. I started a medicine for it two Thursdays ago and it’s helping but it hasn’t fully kicked in yet. I’m also still writing which does help and exercising and getting outside as much as possible. They help too. It’s just rough because I was doing well like not having anxiety for a while and then it snuck up on me and got really bad out of nowhere and stayed bad like 2 week long panic mode bad. I started developing trouble with acid reflux from it too and that made me decide to try medicine since my usual coping skills aren’t enough. We’ll see what happens from here. I’m just continuing to do what I do and staying positive. Do you have anxiety ?
Yes, I do have anxiety especially when it comes to social interactions with strangers. I also feel anxious whenever I need to write a new post for this blog, or when I don’t do the things I planned doing. And of course, I get anxious when I need to talk to the phone… Regardless the anxiety, I keep pushing myself forward through it every day.
Yours sounds a lot like mine. Yeah I hear ya I push through too . It’s just tough when you work directly with people and have a panic attack and have to continue working . That’s happened so much these past few months . I’m glad it’s finally starting to get better little by little though . I hope you find something that helps you . At least we know we’re not alone . 🙂 thank you for responding and taking the time to chat . Keep inspiring ! You got this .
Yes, we’re not alone! Thank you very much for this insightful conversation! 😀
I’m with these guys, anxiety. I tend to lock up and even the words are as clear as day in my head, what outputs it’s often extremely diluted to the point of incoherence. The excercises i find helpful? Pause a single moment in time and write in depth details and description. Eventually the thought process muscles will translate into real time conversations.
Does that happen in every situation and with everyone or there are some people with whom is easier to connect?
Its everyone and everything, but the only ones easiest to connect with are the ones who already understand.
My biggest problem is me. And don`t have a clue how to overcome mySelf.
Which parts of you do you consider to be a problem?
Accepting the reality
Yeah… sometimes reality is too much and too real…
Maintaining a grounded mood and positive outlook in the face of my husband’s debilitating mental illness (treatment resistant anxiety & depression).
What I can do to overcome: get enough sleep, stay hydrated, connect with people, write, continue my psychotherapy appointments, consider opportunities to be an advocate for others, laugh.
It sounds tough, but I’m glad you have a plan for that. How do you feel since you started applying those things?
Relief. It’s easier if I’m sharing the load with others.
Love and the relationships that come with it. If I knew how to overcome this, I would not be human.
How come you consider this being a problem?
because sometimes it’s difficult
Where I left my cup of tea… solution, concentrate on what I am doing… 🙂
I’m so happy you got to that point in life where your biggest problem is where you left your cup of tea 🙂
To stop being scared of failing. I need to keep believing in myself, my ability and that if I build my business, people will come. If I succeed then brilliant, if I fail at least I can say I tried, but I need to jump, have faith and work out how to build my client base & keep them coming back as paying customers. Scary when yer not sure how tho
True, it is scary, but you can face that fear by learning how to be better at doing business 🙂
My lack of patience for things that necessarily need it and stress, stress everywhere… I need a holiday! But I realise how those are indeed minor problems and how lucky I can consider myself.
How often can you pull yourself out of the stress by realizing how lucky you are?
