I was just wandering how everyone was doing a far as anxiety goes? I have felt a little bad but as some of you say, " Im trying to float through these feelings." I felt like I was going to die earlier. I got a head ache on one side of the head and it made me feel uneasy. I took 2 tylenoles so mabye it will help. I just think too hard sometimes. Trying to remain sain. I hope you all are doing well and if not then try and relax and take it easy. One day at a time.

Good Morning, this is Kitt. I am getting ready to leave for the airport to fly alone to Oregon so I am practicing very hard in staying in the moment.  Not worry about what happened in the past, it is over.  Don't anticipate what will happen in the future, I will deal with it when it gets here.  So right now I am staying focused on the fact that I am off to visit my grandchildren and I can do this is and be fine.
So my best advice, stay in the moment and you will be OK.  I wish you a peaceful Easter.

Hi Anastasia,

I hope you are feeling better and the headache has subsided for you.  I agree with Kitt all the way.  Don't dwell on what may or may not happen, you don't know what's going to come along your way.  I know you will do well with whatever does come along.  Just stay in the moment the best that you can; I know it's hard to do sometimes - I'm having a little trouble with it myself too so I know it isn't easy.  But we can both do it and be okay.

Again, I hope you are feeling better and have a great weekend!

Take care,

I have trouble with the "staying in the moment" thing as I feel like I'd like to get out of the moment... By that I mean most of the time I am unable to concentrate because I am hyper aware of every sensation inside my body and the way I am perceiving the environment around me. I have been feeling this way for 3 weeks and I can't shake it... it's really starting to freak me out!!!!! I want to be able to get out of my moment, ya know what I mean??

Yeah I know what you mean liz. Somedays are worse than others but with a positive attitude, it will go a long way. I hope you will begin to feel better. I hope you can find a way out of the moment and when you do, share it with me please. :) Well my weekend went well. My husband and I took our two babies to my dads and ate and watched my 16 month old try and hunt eggs. She kept giving them to the dog. This year was just practice, but next year she will have more fun and know what to do. I have been feeling better. Especially after I went the the health department today and had a breast exam done, talked to her about my anxiety, and scheduled to have a full physical exam in a month. It don't cost to have it done there. But I also told her that I had not been diagnosed with anxiety by a doctor and that i diagnosed myself. She said that I seem to be doing good about it and she was very nice and gave me some good advice. I told her that I am trying to overcome this panic/anxiety and I am headed up hill. Even though some days when I am having an attack it scares the mess out of me and makes me feel awful. The anxiety was scaring me about breast cancer so I went and had an exam done and things are fine. So now I am feeling better about things. I told her that I had a support group online that helps me so much. She thought that I was very smart because of all I knew about it. I told her I have done much research. Well I hope everyone had a nice easter as well. I will continue to pray for each of you and hope many of you are feeling well. Thanks everyone!

I think it was a wise decision to have breast exam done and I believe many more women need them IMHO
