Good morning , All,

Great news is I have been doing well following steps on website SC gave and being able to maintain anxiety.

Over the last few days it has kicked in a bit as I have had minor head ache, nausea, minor dizziness and my right foot/shin seem to be fatigued/tingly (I have been working out and standing a lot and also work a high stress job$ although I know in my heart I am fine my head keeps bringing in the what if factors about Brain Tumors. I feel this may be bc a year ago a friend was diagnosed w one and survived and has been posting a lot of stories about it on social media. I know the numbers the I have less than a 1% chance of having it and constantly is my coping skills to adjust but the mornings are the hardest as I seem to am not ready to face the anxiety.

Thank you in advance

Hi JG:)

Great job on using the self help! I am really glad that you have had some good results with it...well done!

Still, there are going to be challenging times naturally, and I am sorry you are going through one now.

These detours along the way in our progress are frustrating, but temporary, so have faith that you will be back on track soon.

Using postive mantras is a big help for me, and a tool I rely on often. One of my favorites is:

"I am alright, this is just anxiety making me feel/think this way."

If the physical symptoms are really challenging you, you might also want to try the 'Physical Symptom Meditation' link from our Resources. Check it out and see if it helps. (let me know if you need the direct link and I'll post it for you.)

Sending support and encouragement to keep up the good work.:)
