Having more anxiety today than I've had in weeks.  Took my Zyprexa which usually zaps the anxiety pretty good for me (and I only take it when I feel anxiety coming on).  So far, no relief.  May have waited too long.  Forgot ALL my meds yesterday which could have caused the anxiety today.  I sometimes forget on Saturdays or Sundays since I have less of a routine on the weekend than during the weeks.
 
In addition, there are big important meetings this coming week that I must run and an incident happened on Thursday in which I made a comment that was misunderstood and hurt someone's feelings.  I apologized but I still feel bad about it.  I don't let things like this go easily. 
 
Tried to take my usual Sun afternoon nap to no avail; too much anxiety. I've been feeling so very good lately, hope this is just a minor blip.

Everyone has their lil setbacks and I am sure this will pass for you
YOU need not dwell on all that has gone on
as it does feed your Anxiety and keeps you in the "stinking thinking mode"
Many have forgotten a dose of meds I think I know I have
That can play a part IMHO
Please know that you will make it
I know you will
YOU have our support and we do care
I am just here to tell you breathe and keep self in a good place and this will go away I know it will you
have come so far for this to majorly set you back hun

GeorgieGirl,

You may be onto something about how the missed dose could contribute to your lack of relief today.

I understand what you're saying about not letting go of things when you feel you've made someone upset. It is *SO* hard not to try, try, try to make everything go back to how it was before, knowing that that's not really possible. You did apologize, so I'm sure things will settle back to "normal," but the anxiety from thinking about it all over again - at least for me - is like picking a scab. It makes a scar on you that doesn't go away. Then you're more nervous and worried about that person, or that kind of situation than before.

You've done your best, I think, but if it's hard to stop fretting, maybe try to ask *consciously* whether there's anything more you can do NOW, after the fact, that would be helpful. That's what my therapist would suggest. It may be that the only thing is to just sit and be patient, and let the situation and the other person's feelings heal. For me, that's a tougher battle than fighting down a panic attack.

I hope this is just a blip for you, and that you get the week off to a good, positive, feeling-strong start.

Thanks you two Cats!

PercyCat, I've been thinking just that.  Ask to talk to her alone, and really specifically apologize again and say that I understand why she was upset because even though I originally thought she over-reacted, I have since put myself in her place and see why she was upset.   My first apologies, two of them, were not in private setting and may not have seemed sincere.   I don't want to reopen a wound but I also want her to know I am sincerely sorry.  I think sometimes those of us prone to anxiety also take things more seriously than those who don't suffer from A/P.  Usually, this makes us more sensitive to others feelings, too.  In my case, this time my sensitivity button shut down. 

Thanks all for your encouragement. I feel a bit better these 3 hours after taking my missed meds.  No appetite, which is part of my anxiety, and the only welcome part of it! 

Thanks again all.

GG

Sometimes when I make a mistake with Cait and I apologise she rolls her eyes rolleyes
so I sit and I will make a card for her..Homemeade......
Put a lil heart on the back and say its from
"The Mom Card Company " lol turn

YOu did apologise and yes I believe we a/P ppl CAN be  more emotional and more prone to reacting quicker and sometimes differently then we actually mean too
AT least I know I do ........ smilewinkgrin .

Be well .
Have a good week

Georgie even though im an assertive person, i hate confrontation, and i had a 'run in' at work last week with a colleague, i tried to avoid it and be diplomatic, but my colleague sulked and made me feel awful- confrontation increases my anxiety tenfold. i just have that nervy feeling in the pit of my stomach when i think ive offended or hurt someone, even if im in the right.
 
every now and then, super rare, i forget to take my zoloft in the morning (i never forget my xanax at night) but i dont worry bout the zoloft if its just one dose because its built up in my system.
 
I hope you feel better soon, you didnt mean to offend anyone, you are as sweet as pie! i think maybe what you suggested, apologising  one on one may smooth things over? try not to dwell on it, its in the past now. (easier said, i know)
 
Thinking of you, you can do this!!

Jus a minor blip Georgie, your under abit of stress and you missed a dose. Im sure you will be back to normal soon.

I agree with every1 that us A/P ppl find it hard not too obsess over social incidents. Im really bad for it.

Regards

Thanks again for all your support and comments.  I do feel better today.

Mazfire, that's exactly how I feel.  I don't want anyone to think ill of me thus it is troubling when I even accidentally cause someone to get upset with me.

Thanks again.
