Hello, I'm not a local here at this thread. I go to Chronic Pain due to an auto accident. Of course with my constant pain and life changes due to the pain, stressors, etc I feel more anxiety than ever. I'v had anxiety since a child as I was abused and neglected. I pulled my hair out, strand by strand. I think to manage my anxiety from the stress I lived under. I couldn't learn well in school. I later went to college at age 37-42 and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology. I still feel panic attacks and fear runs my life. I have learned to listen to nice soft music: new age, classical, Christian, Josh Grobin is great : ) so is AMY GRANT!
One of my huge issues is I grew up in an enmeshed family so If I'm in a relationship I can get anxiety really easy if I feel alone. My anxiety can be manifest in many ways: eating; pullingmy hair stand by strand; concentration issues; desperation for attention; talking non-stop; being too critical; complaining; whining; PAIN flares and more. I am in a fight now for my very life. I have re dedicated my life back to the Lord. I feel free for the fist time in many many years. I feel I am loved and I am forgiven. ALSO I recently started to study CO-DEPENDENCE in depth. Even if you read just the basics of CD, you will find healing as inevitable in your life. ONCE you become fully aware of this in your life: It's as is someone turned the light on.
I pray each one here at this thread is touched by peace, serenity. joy and purpose. May you realize that YOU are God's child--YOU deserve love--YOU are not responsible for things that happened to you as a child, including your anxiety. Start walking towards your dreams---you have a purpose; may it lead you
