Thank you so much. I will strive for that.

And I'd also be ok with 4 miles. Used to run that much in the morning when I was in High school. (Wayyyy too out of shape to do it now but you know)

Enjoy the lunch with your kids and the rest of your day. :)

I had been off of it since I was logged on with my phone lol so I didn't even think to like literally log off I just closed out of it on my phone. Woops but when I got the email notification for this reply I looked and I was like 'oh oopsies' so I logged out.

update:

my day was ok -- the night was better than the morning.
but I watched two movies and went for two walks and
visited some relatives. Did some dancing around with
my mom.

this morning, woke up with anxiety yet again
still concerned about my head and right eye which
seems to be 'lazier' and hazier vision wise than
my other one. (keep feeling like my peripheral vision is blurrier)

kept getting that cold crawly feeling on the top
of my head, but I took a larger dose of ativan that
seemed to kinda make it better.

my mom got on to me whenever I would do anxiety
habits (i.e. poking and prodding)

but like I said the evening went smoother once
I took some ativan. I also wrote a little short story
(by hand) about HA and anxiety in general.

those are good things   ;D

remember doing good things will take a while to make headway   :yes:   It will take even longer if a person does some of the naughty things.  so no naughty stuff.  each day you engage in the good stuff brings you a bit closer to feeling better.   Know that, at first, your symptoms will likely be fierce.  Please persevere.  the goal is to get better. 

1.  everyday you should walk.  keep up 2x a day then add more when you are feeling confident.    :winking0008:

2.  movies are fun.  I took two of my kids 11 and 16 to the regal cinemas $1 movie summer express this moring.  it was cute.   So, if movies are your thing, keep doing them.

3.  I like that you enjoy writing.  That is a great hobby that could turn into something lucrative.  I have a friend whose husband is a pathologist.  He likes to write creepy/horror/twisty short stories.  He had enough stories to make a book.  He got it self-published on amazon   :happy0151:   I downloaded it to my ipad.  he had some good stories.  So even pathologists have some hobbies to unwind.

4.  still no prodding/poking/monitoring your body.  yes, i know it is difficult.  but the more you refrain, the easier it is for your mind to calm down.

5.  what other activities do you enjoy?  Perhaps you can add those to your list of 'meaningful distraction'?    There are many craft stores that have classes for jewelry making or knitting or  ____ that are a pretty nominal cost.

6.  a beautiful thing to do is giving back to your community.  When I lived in Louisiana, I volunteered a good bit of time to social concerns at my church.  Living here I volunteer my time with a dog rescue.   At this point perhaps write down some service oriented things you find interesting.  After you've gotten your feet wet in engaging in life a bit more, call around to organizations.  these places are always looking for volunteers.  there is something incredibly rewarding  when you give of yourself.

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 noticed that my symptoms were far more persistent yesterday when I was trying to ignore them and have a good day.
I cried a few times and felt depressed that I wasn't going to ever get better but my mom would just hug me and tell me that
everything is going to be ok and that we'll get through it.

I will definitely keep walking and watching movies.
I love to write! It's something I want to do with my life, be an author.

Not poking and prodding is rather difficult but I will strive today to not do it at all--I'll just...sit on my hands when I feel like poking and prodding.

I want to volunteer at our local animal shelter but I don't think they need any assistance. However I suppose it doesn't hurt to ask.
I'm actually crocheting a blanket, but sometimes that doesn't distract my mind enough. :(

I will definitely do some looking around since as I've said before I need a job  (I'm 21 btw)
