Mental Health

Hello everyone, how are you all doing? I’m going to keep this short and simple, I haven’t been very good, I’ve been very bad actually. You see, I’ve always had some sort of anxiety but I felt like I was completely under control of it; having very few bad days. On June 30th  I got on an airplane and had a panic attack…the worst I’ve ever had in my life, my body went numb, my breathing was shallow and my heart was racing, ever since that day I just haven’t been myself, I haven’t been in control of my anxiety. I’ve gotten help, I went to a doctor last Saturday and I’m currently trying to recover and get back to my happy and positive self. 

With that being said, I’m sorry but I will not be continuing my July challenge. I do have my Monday Motivations already set up but I will not be doing any additional posts until I feel much better.
A message to everyone: don’t be like me and wait for things to disappear because it will only get worse and you’ll break down, go and seek help right away.

  2. I hope you feel better! I have struggled with anxiety and panic attacks as well and even wrote a post on how I travel with it! You’re right, left untreated it will get worse and worse. I’m glad that you went to the doctor and I really hope you feel better soon!

  3. Do not force yourself to be happy and supress the feelings and emtions as they tend to add up and come out like volcanic erruption. Feel them express them and watch them come and go till you are no more afraid of them. Also try meditation it will help. I hope you get well soon.

  4. Ahhh, good old anxiety.

    Struggled with it for years but am lucky it doesn’t come back much anymore.

    I’ve been taking prescription meds for a few years and they work well with me. They don’t work well for all.

    If I couldn’t take my meds I’d probably supplement with GABA and L-Taurine to combat my anxiety.

    I hope you can get back on track soon.

    PS – you have the best smile πŸ™‚

  5. Reading this really upset me. This time last year I went through the same thing. I still have days where I don’t want to get out of bed. And my self confidence so low. You’ll find your own way back to your normal self. It takes time but please remember you are never alone. Sending love xox

  7. I’m with you. I too am in the same position. Although it’s different for each person I have found that using the phrase “I notice that I am having a thought about….” begins to separate me from the anxious thought that is building in my mind. Apart from that meditating and exercise. It’s ok to love yourself. Sending love. πŸ’œ

    1. Thank you so much for your amazing kind words! I too find that recognizing what is happening and coming to terms with it helps me a lot. You live and learn strategies to get you through the hard moments. Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your wisdom! x

  8. I’m sorry to read you suffered anxiety, I too suffered from it a few years ago – I effectively lost my job as a teacher over it. I’m fully recovered now although it comes to visit me now and then but that’s ok. I learnt through mindfulness I am not my anxiety; I still have anxious thoughts (much less now and nowhere near as dark) but they don’t have me! There is light and in fact it can make you stronger. Blessings to you dear sister and may your heart grow strong through it all. πŸ˜ƒ

    1. I’m so sorry that anxiety cost you to lose your job as teaching. I can connect with that because I am currently in school studying to become a teacher. I’m so happy that although you’ve had to suffer you came to become a better and stronger you. I do feel better since I last wrote this and each day things get better. As you said, we are not our anxiety. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  9. I am so terribly sorry you had such a horrific panic attack. I know all too well what they are like. I suffered with them for most of my adult life. I know you must have read other blogs, but maybe you could find something different in mine. I am all about mental health disorders (Especially Anxiety, and panic attacks). I would love so much if I can help in any way possible to become the person I wish to get to know. I do hope you feel better real soon. Take care, Beckie
