I will be heading out for my morning jaunt.  I just got my eldest out to her bus(she is disabled and goes to a day hab daily).  I am going to eat my oatmeal and blueberries, then out the dog and I go.  I don't know if I will meet up with my friend and her dogs today. We walk together during the school year.  But now that school is out and she doesn't have to supervise kids,  she is a more "sleep in" kinda gal.  lol.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

I have to say my day isn't going well, fearing rabies because of tingling in my arm... If I don't die of that then I'll die of boredom.  :sign0067:

there in lies the problem.  you are just allowing anxiety to dictate your life.  if you actually got out and about.  if you went out and took walks or went shopping---even just window shopping--- if you opted to keep yourself occupied with meaningful activities, over time you would start getting better.  But as long as you listen and accept all of your anxious thoughts as truth, you are going to live in fear.

Today I'm thankful for my job. :yes:  Despite years of countless ups and down with some severe HA, my job has forced me focus outside myself.  Even if I've shown up after crying for the whole ride there  :traurig001:, or having to go to the ladies room at times to compose myself, it has been truly a Godsend to have the 'forced' focus of having to work and get through the day.  Yes, the anxiety is there and it is never far from my thoughts, but it gets blunted, out of necessity, because of the tasks at hand.

Sixpack, long time no see!  Wonderful to see a post from you.  :yes:

Good for you! How was your morning jaunt? It's hot and humid today. I wonder why does fur doesn't frizz like people's.... :bigsmile:

You're in NY, too. Island or Upstate? :action-smiley-065:

How awesome, your job really helps blunt out the anxiety. Sounds like you've done real well! Happy for you. :action-smiley-065:

Last night I got my ipod up to date with my walking music.. I bought a Fit Bit, which should be delivered today.  My goal is to walk before work and after work.  God knows, i need to lose 20lbs.  I am doing this in conjuction with going on a carb free diet.

I am determined to make myself mentally strong as well as making my body as close to physically fit as possible

Sounds like a great idea. Walking is the best thing for anxiety....it makes us breathe correctly- and releases endorphins which are a nice bonus.

Goals are good :yes:

Well, despite feeling so fatigued for the past couple weeks (I'm wondering if I have CFS)  here's what I did today, woke up at 4:30 to send my hubby off to work, took my Pug out for his morning walk, came back home and did a chest, shoulder, tricep work-out, took a shower, had breakfast, went over my Dad's house to wash a load of clothes for him, went to Target to buy a shower curtain, and dish drainer (ended up buying some lipstick too  :happy0151: ) , went to Starbucks, when I got back home I had lunch---a huge salad---perfect for this weather.  Now I'm about to do some housework, and cook supper.  All in a days work!
