Wannabbetter, that is the AMAZING thing about God( one of many amazing things I should say) while no human being can be with you ALL the time, GOD can! I know it is not the same thing as having someone with you in the flesh, but who can watch over us better and with more care, and love, than our Heavenly Father? When you husband goes back to work, I would suggest you start each day in prayer, ask God to send people your way who may help you through this adjustment time..maybe one or two close, nonjudgemental people, who you would be able to call upon when you are feeling anxious..etc. I KNOW it is hard being alone, while I live with my mom, I still dont have any CLOSE friends( my mom is my closest..but you know what I mean), which have this anxiety disorder that I have. But who knows better what I am going through than Christ??? I try, when I am anxious to meditate on all the verses of scripture which deal with fear, anxiety, sadness, depression..etc. I am also thinking, do you have any hobbies you like to do? Any kind of craft you might be able to get into that could help occupy your time and get your mind on??? I like to make wreaths for various holidays, seasons..etc..so I try to get involved in one of those and get my mind on something otherthan myself. I am NOT a crafty person, but I just pick up wood shapes( like flowers for spring, eggs , crosses for Easter..etc.) and paint them and glue them together in a wreath form. It is very theraputic. You might want to try something like that. . I dont know if you and your hubby garden, but now is a good time to send away for and read through gardening magazines...I find those very relaxing and beautiful to look at!
God bless you and Take care!
In His Grip,
yes miwoman1, i know what you mean. My husband knows my routines and rituals that i have with my anxiety. He understands and i dont have to worry what people think of me.I dont have too many friends for that reason> i dont think ppeople will understand my anxiety and panic disorder. I dont like to tell people that i have this condition. i guess because it makes me sound weak. I wish i could find a support group around me. I have family but they dont live around me about 550 miles away. it is hard trying to raise a family with no family or friends around you, and especially with this panic disorder. i feel so alone.You are so forunate that you have your mom. My parents live in another country, but so happy that i still have them on this earth. My husband has been laid off of work. he has been with me everyday since novemeber, 2006. he will be back to work in 2 weeks. i am starting to freak out. the thought of being alone scares me so bad. i dont know how i will do. i am trying to be strong, asking the lord to help me. what to do, i dont know. Any suggestions!!!!!would apprectiate. thanks. thanks for understanding, and your support
