I’ve had a week’s worth of anxiety and now I am left feeling exhausted and raw.
The edges of my mind feel like frayed, thinning fabric, and I’ve had nausea in waves.
Depression on top of pre-menstrual symptoms on top of the recent sifting through emotions in therapy have created this bitter concoction, not unlike heartburn.
I feel like I lost this week. I tried, and now I admit defeat.
Tonight though, I’m sitting here with my sweet and precious family and I think I can put the loss aside and rest.
I can go easy on myself, calm my mind, and try again.
Positive affirmations have helped, even if it is slowly.
A simple thing like saying,”I am grateful for all the good in my life” has caused a shift in my normal, pessimistic thoughts. I am in a better mood, and I appreciate things more.
How do you help ease your anxiety? Does it ever go away completely? I’d love to hear examples from those that follow my blog. 🙂
