Moving like a freight train the thoughts bouncing off one another
Constantly searching for that something that will give me peace
Short lived periods of calm that leave the moment I reach out my hand tp grasp them
The nerves taking over slowly, slithering and wrapping around my mind and body choaking off and squeezing out the calm. 
I Inhale deeply and hold it, slowly releasing - sending out my breathe and with it, my fear. 
Tensing and releasing one muscle at a time until I can find the free feeling of floating - complete relaxation...
Until the next contraction of nerves that I know will come and when it does I will send it away again.

Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh Liz,

Very good, you too have a way with expressing yoursself with the written words.  It is truly a talent and so helpful in identifying your feelings.

Keep it up.

Thanks Kitt,
I hope others will share their thoughts in response as well... not necessarily in response to what I wrote (however it's very nice to hear) but also because I so enjoy taking a trip into the subconscious thoughts of other's. Have a beautiful day!

Aahh...thats very nice! Just wondering, but do you write alot, or did you just start? But, I am glad you repsonded! Writing helps alot and I wanted everyone to know it so that mayeb it could help others. For me, its like being in my own world. When I write I go into it. Everything around me disappears and its just my pen, my paper, and me. I can close my eyes and just write. It is very nice. It gets alot of thoughts out. And it is nice to be in control of something. Alot of times I let my thoughts control me, and writing allows me to be in control. So, I hope writing can help others. But anyways, that was very nice. I hope others can share there thoughts as well! Take care!

Hiya TeNNiS,

I write often (usually going through spurts). I've started a couple novels and have books of poetry. My dream is to write a best seller one day - although with my hectic life I highly doubt that would happen anytime soon. Because I am a high stress HIGH anxiety person, I am rarely able to slow myself (or my thoughts) down long enough to relax. When I write I typically become totally immersed in the story or feelings swimming through my mind. It's quite soothing (unless I hit a rough spot where I can't think of what comes next) and anything that helps me to calm down is certainly welcomed. I thank you for bringing this up and appreciate the opportunity to share my thoughts with you. Keep writing and I will keep reading. Have a great evening!!

Very nice

Why not keep a thread of the 2 of your writings and if others want to join in so be it ......

I think by expressing your innermost thoughts you are getting so much of the "ugly angst" out of you and onto that page.........

Both are very good at wriiten word IMHO

Keep it up I know I do enjoy reading it does stike many a chord within me

Wow, nyliz, it was like you were describing me. I write sometimes. I havee to be in the mood for it. Otherwise I cant do it. I have alot of stuff I have written. Alot of people have told me I should write abook about my experiences and such but I couldnt do it. I couldn't concentrate enough to write a book. But, when I write its like I get sucked into. Everything disappears and I am inside the writing. Its a strange feeling when I am done, but I feel like its a huge load off. Maybe others will share there writings. I would love to see how others feel. Here's a little something I wrote the other day.

Thoughts race like roadrunner on a Saturday morning cartoon
Heart pounding through my chest like a wrecking ball through a concrete building
Air taken away as if I am a criminal
As faintness fills my mind and body
Reality diminishes before my eyes
Leaving me in an altered state
Worry, fear, anxiety are relentless
Overpowering in its march to take over
My strength is no match for its power
It quickly takes over leaving me behind
Standing paralyzed with fear

Not knowing how to precede
My body is no longer my own
Being controlled by an outsider
I will one day gain control and overtake my mind and body once more
I will build my strength and courage to be indestructable against any force
I will take myself over
I will conquer tha real me
I lose the battles now
But one day, one day I will become victorious
This will only exist in the past and within my own memories
Never again will it rule me.


Sorry its so long. I get carried away when I am in writing mode. Not sure what it all means, but I am sure I will figure it out. Its just how I felt at the time I guess. But, I want to ENCOURAGE others to post something they have written. I think it would be great if we could all join together and share our feelings through writing. It really does help alot, most of the time. So, I encourage others to give it a try! No one will be judgemental, the important thing is not how good you write or anything like that, the important thing is that you let your feelings out! Express Yourself! Have a great afternoon!! yeah
