i know i might have talked about this before , the way my brain works i can't remember some things, do any of you have anxiety everyday all day, i do , i wish i could stop it, yesterday though i rearrange my room and it felt nice to change things around, it kept my mind occupied, believe you me you don't realize how much stuff you have till you do something like that. the other day we had one of my husbands friends come over and the whole time i was so tense , i was worried about shaking or showing my anxiety, it made me feel bad and sore all over.
i still have that little bit of thought in my head want if it something else, i think sometimes my mind has to much time to think, its overactive well thanks for listening.

Hi Machelle..  I am sorry to hear that your anxiety is so bad.  I don't have this problem regularly, I just have it when I am under an infinite amount of stress, which I have also had for the past month and a half. 

In many respects, I think that you have already answered your own question.  Finding a physical project keeps your mind away from the "smaller" details, yet allows you to work off some steam.  Do you have a cellar you can clean or projects around the house (or apartment) that you could do?  Or I am not sure where you are from, but it is very cold where I am (US - New England) and I just started planting seeds for flowers (they will be for containers)..for me it feels so good to see them when they start popping out of the soil. ...Or even just smelling the freshly watered soil gives me hope of spring coming soon.

These are just a few ideas, but it sounds like you are already on the right track. Keep in touch and let us know if these are ideas that you might consider doing.

I do know what you are talking about, I've had the all day, every day anxiety in the past and it is so miserable.  I think keeping busy is a good way to keep your mind occupied so you don't obsess about it all day.  Projects around the house, reading, crafts, if that interests you, cooking, or yes, even the dreaded cleaning can keep you busy.  When I was anxious all the time, I made a plan of what I was going to the night before so I didn't have to think about it in the morning and could just get moving instead of sitting around and allowing myself to overthink things or talk myself out of doing something and end up anxious.  It does get better, I don't have anxiety much at all anymore, but it took time to get here.  You'll make it!!!

Hi Machelle

When we have company over I talk to my hubby ahead of time and ask him to take care of certain duties that I am uncomfortable with such as pouring coffee less my shaking hands pour the coffee in their lap.

Also when I am trying to get dinner on the table I ask him to be sure to seat everyone and then help me dish up, he can put the platters of food on the table.

If my daughter is here I just ask her to be my kitchen help and she does.  We have a small house so entertaining is tough.  Everyone wants to stand around in the kitchen and dining area.  No one will go down stairs to the family room.

My favorite kind of entertaining is to order Pizza or take people out for lunch.

Your not alone with your anxiety.  Hugs to you.
