Fighting the anxiety symptoms......
« on: January 25, 2014, 09:06:10 PM »
Hello everyone.....well I figured I'd share a positive story on how I dealt with my anxiety the other night.  I been feeling crappy for a few weeks with symptoms.  Hubby has been wanting to go on a date night for a while as it is hard to get alone time with two children one being 5 yrs old. LOL but anyway I was feeling so so one night and was like you know what we should go today! It was late at night and I just threw it out there so he said ok lets go to dinner and then the Casinos.  Well, that of course got me a little anxious because eating out recently had been giving me symptoms big time at the dinner table and then the though of a CASINO open sapce with tons of people ummmmm yeah I wasnt to fond of that idea.  Well, I then stopped with these thoughts and told myself I am not going to let this anxiety/panic disorder of mine hold me back today.  I am going to enjoy myself and have a good time.  If I start to feel symptoms increasing just start the breathing exercises and keep it moving.  So thats what I did and when all was said and done we had a fabulous dinner at an awesome restaraunt and hit the Casino afterwards and I had very very minimal symptoms but payed no mind to them and enjoyed every minute of it.  At the end of the night I was proud of having conquereed that night and talking myself into enjoying it and not be scared of the "what ifs?" thoughts.  We can all get through this and will have good and bad days, but its how we come back stronger that makes all the difference.

"CONGRATULATIONS", Bubbles!!! :party0002:

Thank-you so much for sharing such a positive story here on Anxiety Zone!  You kept your anxiety in its place, and pushed the outside of the envelope!  And had a great time to boot!  Great job!!! :sign0060:

I will be starting cognitive behavioral therapy on Monday, and I am hopeful that will break more of my chains.

The very best to you, Bubbles!...  Chuck

Thank you Eric. I understand where you are coming from because I too was where you are about two years ago.  I had every symptomn in the book, and went months before someone was able to telo me what was wrong with me. I couldn't eat as well, I lost like 15 pounds in one month, I could not go out anywhere, I could barelyt drive to work and thats probably 5 minutes or so from my home, I supervise a dept. and would have panic attacks a few times a day and in the middle of meetings and have to control myself, I didnt sleep and was afraid to, I could not go into stores or be in the car long, I was practically bedridden, spent many of hours a day in bed in the dark with my diliberating symptoms.  So trust me Eric I totally understand where you are coming from.  The meds, therapist, ruling out medical issues, yoga, breathing exercises, making myself go out and fight this day in and day out, forcing myself to eat to get strong, taking vitamins D3, Iron, B6, B12, C as prescribed by my Neuro, exercising, listening to meditation music and sounds when I feel anxious or when going to bed etc. all have aided in me being able to have gotten to where I can somewhat control it to a point that I am trying for it not to get to the level it was when it first happened to me.  I know its hard and I am thankful I been able to still somewhat function.  Hang in there and perhaps try some of the things I mentioned.  Perhaps medication if you arent taking any might be the what you need to start getting you too a better place mentally and physically.  You can get through this....you have to believe and have faith.

Thank you Chuck  :action-smiley-065: I appreciate the support.  Yes, it was defintelyt hard to do because its literally like a mental game played on a daily basis.  But, I felt so good about myself for having done that and been able to enjoy a nice night.  That positive feeling made many of my symptoms just disappear that day.  Its a challenge everyday because I never know how my day is going to go but I what i try to do when I first wake up because I am usually a little shakey and anxious I sit up and just relax my mind and do deep breathing for about 15 minutes and then start my day and have some decaf chamomile hot tea relaxes me.  This seems to help greatly. Have a good one  :winking0008:
