Like I wanna see reality a different way!! and most of all i wanna be in a good mood and never worry. what should i do
I feel for you because I am the same way. Trying to find meds that will help calm me so I can maybe do yoga or something. You have to eat right and drink lots of water and make sure your sleeping and dont forget to breathe:) I just want to be back like my regular self again and enjoy life... My first ever visit to pysche and he says im a anxious person and worrier and I do worry about everything. Ive been on klonopin for 16 months but it got to where it made me nervous so weening off to try something else. Its just a trial and error type situation. Good luck and i will keep you in my prayers!
Unfortunately, it all boils down to the way we are "hard wired" (You've heard of our natural instinct toward fight or flight) - I think anxious people find themselves hopelessly "stuck" in that mode. We can get some relief from medications (I take klonopin and xanax), and even learn to trick our minds behaviorally to feel calmer. But what do you do when that standing on the edge of a cliff listening to fingernails digging into a chalk board is where most of your life is lived? I try to recall how awesomely beautiful the sky can be following a bad storm. When I'm anxious, I try to look around and about me for a glimpse of that beautiful sky where I can find a moment's calm.
I really can relate.. I wish I could jsut wake up and feel normal and go to work and come home and do my thing, but it jsut dosnt go that way. I always seem to have this incredible weight or this big giat bubble that follows my head around, or this constant feeling of being uncomfortable. I jsut wish I could relax and be happy. I have about 20 min total out of my day and then i am depressed again..grrrrrrrrr. going back to work tomorrow , i have no clue how hthis is going to go
Hi torrific; any body who knows me knows I also feel the same A's you and the other posts. At 43 being anxious all my life you would think I would just get used to it but I don't. I am always waiting for that "normal" feeling to appear. So far the closest I've come is this BuSpar. I've only taken 3 so maybe I'm jumping the gun, but I feel pretty good. It's good timing cause I'm looking to wean off of benzos. I wish you luck. Write me anytime about your anxiety, Cathleen
Hi sweetie! I totally understand. I feel the same way. I am constantly worried about sometjing. I look at some of my relatives and old high school friends and wish I could trade lives with them (but I would have to take my hubby... lol). But of course we r stuck in our own lives. Have u talked to a dr about putting u on an anti-depressant like celexa, paxil, zoloft, etc. They usually take about 4-6 wks to actually get in your system, but it is usually well worth the wait. Have u ever had a psychological evaluation? I suffer PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder) alot of trauma from my childhood and teens, and I also am Manic depressive. If u ever need to talk I will friend u and u also need to friend me and we can talk private or publicly. Good luck.
Hi there, When you feel anxiety coming on, try taking a brisk walk. Exercise can help alot. Find one that you like to do. Also try to think of something that makes you calm and happy and when you fell the anxiety come on think of that. Make it a habit. It's a good one. These are just a few things you can do while you are waiting for the right med to kick in. Once your med works continue with this also. It becomes a way of life and it's healthy for you. That's what I do. Hope this helps you. Take care. smiley happy.
