I have been having problems lately.
 
Such things as my brain feels weird.. almost tightened... like it's being squeezed and when I look at things in the night time I can't almost look at them because it feels so weird.
 
I've been feeling like I'm going to have a bad panic attack because I haven't had one in 3 weeks, but I'm getting anxious because I haven't had one.  Anyone ever felt that?
 
I just needed to share that with you all.
 
I haven't been around in a while because I don't know how to think or feel.  Starting this new business has been wildly crazy and I haven't had much time for HW... but I'm feeling so odd lately that I don't know what to do.
 
I feel panicky most mornings.. and then it subsides... and I hadn't even taken my meds even when it subsides...I feel a supressed rage... specifically towards men (no offense to the men here) but they have done nothing but hurt me...
 
I feel alone.
 
I feel dark and afraid of what may come.
 
I feel as though I'm venturing out on my own and don't know who to trust.
 
I'm sorry I haven't been here.
 
I just don't know what to do.
 
I'm not exactly panicky, but I'm anxious.  I'm scared.  I almost had a panic attack today because I forgot my pills but turned around and went and got them so I would feel safe.
 
I wonder if I should quit my Lexapro... but then I don't think I should because I feel remotely like myself again.
 
I'm scared.

Sounds like you are so busy! I think it would be normal to be out of sorts in a time like this. Try posting when you can and I hope it all works out and calms down for you!

Twiggy ((((((BIG HUGS)))))) honey I am so sorry your having these feelings hun. But I so admire what you are achiving. You have taken the bull by the horns and making your dreams come true that would be scary and nurve racking to anyone. Just take some time for you sounds like your getting over whelmed with it all. Pay more attention to staying on track with your meds they have gotten you this far and they will help you thru the rest.

I can't wait to hear NOW open for buisness. Keep up the good work girl were all proud of you.


(((HUGS)))

There's just so many things to do and to accomplish and everything that I need to get done isn't done and yeah...

maybe that's why I'm out of sorts..

cuz I'm juggling my current job... opening up this one... talking to 8 different people a day about it... and trying to help out here on HW...

and still have time for the family and friends... etc...

BLAH

lol


Thanks you guys ... I didn't know what to think...if I was going to go crazy or something. I decided to stay on the meds but right now I just feel a restlessness like I need to get out and do something because all I've done for the past two weeks is work work work.

Oi.

Relax a little Twiggygal...
No use trying to be 'superwoman' lol.
Do you have a diary so you can organise your time, appts, and every other little thing that you need to organise - that way there is less reason to panic eh? And don't forget to pencil in some time for You too ok :-)
Take good care.

Not me but I'm ducking anyhow. Girl listen to your friends and stay with the meds, take some time for yourself, and take a deep breath and relax. Good luck with the business and I'll be prayin for you.

KEEP THE FAITH

Hi Twiggygal, I'm happy for you that you are following your dreams. What is the new business? It sounds like change makes you anxious. I'm like that too. Just recognize it for what it is. Change, anticipatory anxiety and stress. Keep a daily appointment book and prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. Block out certain times of the day for calls, writing, etc. Of course, you will need to be flexible, but don't let the "to-do list" control you. Take time to walk and to do your deep breathing exercises. Otherwise, you just have to get through it. Don't be scared - just do it. I'm speaking from experience. The "aniticipatory anxiety" or "fear of failure" is worse than taking action.

As for the men, journal a lot and talk to a therapist and find a couple great guy-friends. Guard your heart but don't close it shut. You have a lot to offer someone.
