I'm not really feeling myself tonight or morning whatever you want to call it. I just feel so shaky inside and feeling moody. shakehead   I have been doing so well and then today it just hit me and I just want to scream. I just feel so blank. Like I shouldn't be here. I hate these feelings and I hate being like this. I hope something soon helps. I'm going out of my mind again.

Good Morning Vel,

I am so sorry that I was not on late last night to help you.  I do have a few tips to help you through the anxiety next time around.

Talking usually helps. Share your feelings with friends, family, on here are all good ways to work through the anxiety.

Relaxation techniques: Try deep breathing, muscle relaxation, visualization (imagining peaceful scenes), and/or listening to soothing music.

Realistic self-talk: While we can't always control what happens to us, we can always control what we say to ourselves. It's important to keep things in perspective. Talk to yourself in reasonable ways. Ask yourself "how likely is my fear?" Remind yourself that you have coped before during other challenging times. Don't just dwell on the negative but consciously look for things you can appreciate every day.

Make an effort to stay focused on what's happening now. What do you see, hear, and smell? How do you feel? Truly be 'present' in the moment! That will help you keep the anxiety down.

Please keep talking to us and know that we are here for you.

Gentle Hugs

Happy Vel,

It's horrible when anxiety sneaks up behind you like that. As Kitt said, keep yourself distracted. Focus on the good days you have had in the past and know it will pass. The way we think is the way we feel. Let is pass through you and on...

You deserve to feel happy not jittery. Believe in that my friend.

Hugs for you (((((hugs)))))
