Oh Anxiety Again?!…

If you follow my post you know that the whole reason I started this blog was to have a space to write my thoughts down as at the time I was having trouble with a bit of depression and anxiety. Thankfully though I have managed to get back on track and no longer class my self as depressed, but the anxiety thing does like to rear his head every once in a while.

The past few weeks though I have found that the anxiety hits me at stupid times and it kinda scares me because I thought I was back on the tracks and that I was ok now. I just feel like ‘Great here it comes creeping again!! Welcome back’. But then someone did point out that a lot of things are changing at the moment though so maybe that’s why? I’ve got a job teaching dance which I’m so happy about and I want to do really good at it so I know I am trying hard at that. But then I am also changing bar jobs to work around the dancing so that probably adds to it as well. Like things are good I shouldn’t be feeling anxious.

I just keep getting worried. Sat down typing this I just feel a bit stupid because I’m basically just answering my own questions as I know that everyone gets worried about things. It’s just once my head starts thinking one thing it doesn’t stop and I have either blown the situation out of proportion or create a non existing issue. And then I get a bit crazy about the situation! its a vicious circle really. I know its just not me it happens to everyone but I have been doing it a lot recently. Maybe it’s just one of those things? Because I know its just not me!

Sorry just felt like I had to have a little blurt out of thoughts!

Thanks for reading.

  1. Anxiety does not vanish overnight, you are quite normal in your reactions. Fill those minutes with something positive. A walk somewhere lovely or music….
    Trouble with us humans is hat we think too much.:) brain cannot cope with emotions and all gets muddled.

    Have you tried yoga, Pilates or similar classes..

  2. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Anxiety is something you’re working on, and it’s going to be difficult at times. You’ve overcome depression and you should be really proud of yourself for that! It sounds like you’ve got a lot going on at the moment, so just go easy on yourself 🙂

  3. I know it’s not going to cure it, that’s even if anything can cure anxiety, but I’m so glad writing helps. At least you have an outlet, since keeping it all inside is much worse! Take care, and remember you have so much support here xx

  4. I get what you mean. I really only have anxiety while driving (other people on the road scare me and I’ve been rear-ended twice), but my boyfriend still struggles with his anxiety frequently. It used to be really bad when he was younger, but being on medication helped him to get over the worst of it. Now it kinda just comes back in spurts when he’s stressed out. We’ve been trying to cut him back on sugar and caffeine cause he says he feels the symptoms of a small attack more when he’s hyped up. Hopefully it’ll help (:

      1. Everyone’s different, so I think it’s great to share what works for you in order to potentially help someone else (: it’s up to you if you wanna try cutting back the caffeine, but lemme know if it works!

  5. I’m glad you find writing about it helps. Whilst everyone does get anxious about things, it very much depends on what type of anxiety you have. I’ve suffered really bad with generalised anxiety disorder that a lot of people just don’t understand. Imagine feeling like you’re waiting for a job interview (that nervous sicky feeling) 24 hours a day. Hope you find a place of calm soon. You’re doing fine, take it slow ❤

  6. It is so positive that you are able to be open about this, and find ways to help you to feel better. I think unfortunately the nature of anxiety means that we won’t necessarily get to a point where we are never anxious again, but instead we do learn ways to better manage when we do feel that way. We will all have good days and not-so-good days, and that is okay! Just enjoy and appreciate the good days, and turn them into great days, and forgive yourself and look after yourself if and when you do struggle 🙂

  7. I just started my blog to help with my anxiety issues and the hopes of sharing. I also suffer from debilitating, chronic migraines which makes my anxiety constant. I’m sorry you deal with this but I am glad to hear that writing helps. You give ME hope 😉

  8. don’t ever let anxiety feel that way. i started my blog for the same thing. i hope to get where you are…where i don’t feel it’s as suffocating. but you’ve come so far. don’t let these episodes get to you. i wish i could be where you are, but you motivate me that it can happen for me too!

  9. It’s a battle that comes and goes. It’s when the panic sets in that it starts to become unmanageable. Sometimes I’ll light a candle and remind myself that, at that moment, that’s all I have to focus on and remember that I am ok…
    Congrats and good luck on the dance and job changes
