My Mood: Anxiety Daily Check-In point #6

Default Re: Anxiety Daily Check-In point #6

It hasn't quite been a week since I quit my job. My life has done a turn around. I knew I was very sick at the time but now that the major source of angst is out of my life I realise the true extent of my anxiety and just how much it was consuming my life. Today I feel a sense of freedom. Oh I still have some stress in my life but it is tolerable and I am coping much better.

I really realised this yesterday when I had my meeting with my Veterans' Affairs (Canada) case manager. Instead of sitting there like a tub of goo I actually fully participated in a discussion with her what with a significant increase in confidence. She remarked on the difference. I had a long way to go still but she said she felt I was ready to be a full participant in the rehabilitation (PTSD, ANXIETY) process.

I've been feeling very anxious today. I haven't been able to do most of the things I was planning to do...

My anxiety has been kind of bad today. I took a Xanax, and itís still sort of there. Maybe a low calorie diet of ramen, ice cream, and Oreos isnít a good idea even if it does only add up to 1200 calories. I did have a semi healthy, but probably not all that healthy dinner. That was part of that 1200 calories. Probably still not good though.

Today is the first day. So far so good. I got a panic attack once but I calmed myself down. It wasn't as bad as I thought. Not sure about tomorrow....

Had a panic attack today in my therapist's office's bathroom before session. It was caused by being nervous to see her and me feeling the bathroom wasn't clean enough since I have OCD. But I managed to get to session and talk okay.

I went to the doctor's to request a referral to see a psychiatrist, and also got a couple of shots, so my anxiety was a bit higher than usual. Ended up getting pretty flustered while I was there, but I got over it pretty quickly once I'd left knowing I accomplished what I went in there to do. As an added bonus, I was reminded that needles don't hurt, so it's not worth overthinking it in the future.

I felt like a zombie today because I didn't get enough sleep. I was awoken by my neighbors who were intoxicated.
