I'm here today! Feeling pretty good although nervous about some assignments i've been putting off.

Of course I play a role in my own problems. It's true that there are many stressors that we don't create but I think the majority of them we do! Stress can come from procrastination or from guilt, really at times I can be my own worst enemy.

You guys have helped me a lot already, i'm feeling pretty good about this week, hopefully everything will go well today and I'll get my work done so I can enjoy a (relatively) stress free Saint P day.

I hope you all are staying chill.

LOL....I had to chuckle only because I feel as if I'm my own worst enemy much of the time (see my posts on the 'you know you have anxiety when' board...).  I worry SO much about the possibility of things happening, when a lot of times my fears are unwarranted.  And sometimes I wonder if my little rituals I have when I am full of anxiety only serve to reinforce my anxiety and keep the cycle going.  I guess you could say I worry about my anxiety, too!  Yikes!  smhair

sad  ......MOST definitely I have created many of my own problems even health issues with the abuse I put self thru with long time drinking ..........
Dwelled in grief for so long and then with deaths of 6 family members in 5 yrs I surrounded self with death
I was numbing self .....and in turn I hurt self and ppl that truly love me
Luvs me
 
I am /was a constant worrier as well worried about all on here even when trying to sleep
I got wrapped up in all the ppl I became close too and others as well
I do care for so many here I would not change that now though
BUT I have learnt to draw back and access situations more now than before
I also am able to feel better knowing you are all in good hands with each mod n member and that I am not the only one here .........
I do hope we get MORE posts on this question turn
VERY good question Lil sis
Love

Lyn.....I can see that you are a very empathetic person, and that makes you a wonderful friend. It does have its difficult side, for sure, when you have to draw back to avoid becoming so immersed that you find yourself sinking! I've been down that road, too, and it's a delicate balancing act. I'm sorry you lost so many loved ones in such a short time. It becomes truly overwhelming, and I'm sure it was very tough to get through it. I hope you don't mind my saying so, but I think going through such painful circumstances gives you a greater ability to help others through the hard times, and obviously you care very much about doing that. I really enjoy your posts and how warm you are with everyone.

I play a constant role in creating my own problems. I guess I can't blame everyone else for my issues so I'll just blame myself. I constantly worry about stuff that's happening and let it control my everyday life. It's horrible sometimes. Well, I guess that's it for now.

Thanks my new friend
'
Yes I was also a nurse for so many yrs was always told I got to close to the ppl
YOU can never get to close to those suffering from Diseases such as Alzheimer's and others........IMHO

I do believe totally in EMPATHY for w/o it how can you ever know what someone else may be going thru ya kow
Walk a mile in their shoes
That is why I have such a great relationship with my doc he
knows I am in pain and he will not let me be....
He tx' plans are always inclusive of me ......
WE discuss at length what is going on ......

I brought so much damage to my life when as a child a young girl I began to drink to get thru the days and the perfection that was expected of me from my Mom .........

I QUIT cold turkey 30 yrs ago tomorrow
The day after my first love was Killed in a drinking /driving accident.........
I am NOT the only one that has lost their sons daughters hubby's wives to the booze and driving drunkards
I am totally into MADD
Thanks for your sweet words

Most definitely!
 
And I'll even go one step further.  Not only do I have a hand in creating my own problems, but often, I find myself so paralyzed with anxiety that I can't even be part of the solution.

I have seen the enemy, and the enemy is me... or something like that! I guess the old adage "You are your own worst enemy" applies really well to me, too. But since it's an old adage, I guess I again see it as evidence that I am more normal than I give myself credit for, I just overreact, and that's where the anxiety and panic come in!

Hey good question!

I also have many issues with causing problems for myself, not so self destructive anymore when it comes to not loving myself, but I tend to have an ocd obsession when it comes to work, and I've been going on 4 hours sleep for a week until I crashed last night. I always have so many projects going on that I don't think about the anxiety which helps, but I can see where it has been a big factor in collapsing last year. . . then as soon as I feel better, I find myself doing it again. I'm making a pact right now to take more time for fun so I can enjoy life instead of making it so darn complicated :)

Take care all & Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! We are going to have a small get together tonight and I will actually just do nothing, lol :)
