Anxiety is eating me away

   

       Lately I've felt very anxious. I hate this feeling. It's similar to the feeling when you're leaving the house and think you're forgetting something - but there's nothing you forgot. There's something in the back of my mind killing me, eating away at my brain. The littlest things can trigger anxiety. When I'm babysitting, if the kids have the TV up too loud and are each child is doing a different activity yelling over each other I usually have "CD" time. We blare music instead and it calms me down.

      This feeling is un-explainable, and  I'm sure many of you can relate. I just don't understand how the brain fucks with us so badly. Or why. I just want to be healthy, and happy. Is that too much to ask for?

  1. Anxiety is groce. I usually put on a show to focus on something else. I have noticed not eating soon enough triggers it so easily!

  2. I def can understand - I have been suffering of anxiety so much. Brains are an interesting thing, they do what ever they want no matter if we want it or not. Hope you will feel better soon!

  3. I'm sorry to hear that. I have that all of the time with assignments. Music is the best calming solution though!

  4. I understand the whole just wanting to be healthy and happy. I've been saying that for years. Every time I think I'm fine, and then bam! Anxiety all over again. I feel anxious over the simplest things, especially when I know that I'm momentarily happy; there's always a part of my brain screaming, "Hey you, why are you so happy? That's not how this works."

    Thanks for posting this! Makes me feel human <3

  6. Don't feel that you're alone. I had a bout with this too. It's usually others that cause mine (worrying me to death). I hope you get some relief soon.

  8. Sorry this is happening. I hate anxiety, and when I get small attacks (they've become more rare thank God) it becomes hard to breath. For some reason, I like when I can lay on the floor, and just relax and breath. Most places have popcorn ceilings, so I like to look for shapes in them...Or if I'm outside (and there's clouds) I do that cloud thing.

    IDK, maybe that will help you too :) (I admit my thing is weird).
