I started taking a medication for something else that really knocked out my anxiety so I haven't posted here in awhile. The medication caused extreme sleeplessness so my pdoc has taken me off of it. Expecting the anxiety back any day now. It was a nice break while it lasted. I look wistfully at those not afflicted with crippling anxiety.

Sending hugs to those that are struggling today.

People said hello or smiled at me while I was walking. Means I don't look so tense I think, and I've been feeling a bit more grounded the past couple of days. I hope this is some kind of turning point. We'll see.

I did a meditation and it opened up a bunch of childhood memories. Not good ones, either. I wrote a lot of poems and it cleared my mind a bit.

Husband and I are going out to dinner. Fondue, yum! We couldn't get a reservation for tomorrow so we're doing it tonight. Kids are going to daughter's boyfriend's house since his mom's birthday is also tomorrow.

Anxiety is going up and down so I'm rolling with it.

pretty rough, hand a really bad anxiety attack last night due to other health issues. I haven't had one in a while and now I'm on edge about it. Extremely worried I'll get another one. Not to mention I haven't been to school in two days and don't know when or if I'll be able to go back.

Hang in there KYWoman, you'll get through your situation in one piece. Keep pluggin' away. Everything chops and changes.

Well, I'm still optimistic [why, I'm not sure] but had a rough day today. As soon as there are people present I'm triggered into an almost psychotic low, it's horrendous. Meds are helping to a degree but I'm still not functioning at the level I'd like to. I'll have another natter with my doctor the next time I see him. Feels like I'm just clutching at straws now though.

My dad called and say they are taking him to the hospital because he didn't feel well at work. I think it's his blood pressure. I feel anxious

Spent most of the morning with a sinus headache and an upset stomach. My hairdresser texted me to come in early, so I did that to take my mind off my head. I feel a little better now, but kind of sad I didn't get anything productive done.

Have I mentioned before I can't trust the good in my life? I am anxious today wondering when the axe will fall.
