Obviously when you're feeling at a low ebb, the last thing you tend to think about is the things that are good in your life. But to do this is a sure fire mood lifter and anxiety buster.
Coming here and talking to others that have anxiety is a good choice and I am so glad you found us.
Again a warm welcome to you.

Anticipatory anxiety is where a person experiences increased levels of anxiety by thinking about an event or situation in the future. The worries you experience specifically focus on what you think might happen, often with catastrophic predictions about the event. I am sure it was very traumatic to have the implant rupture. Try to stay in the moment and don't start worrying about the surgery. You will get it taken care of and all will be well.
It's really important for myself to be able to stay in the moment. I have found that by avoiding things like dwelling on past or worrying about the future I am usually able to get done what needs to get done when it needs to get done.
If you can learn to stay present in the moment then you can rapidly and gracefully change your life for the better!
I am right here for you and I will support you in anyway I can.
