ANXIETY BACK TO ITS NORMAL STATE IS ACHIEVABLE.
.
Back to getting nervous before an interview which can help you perform a bit better, having that burst of adrenalin when an accident is about to happen to enable you to survive. That’s normal anxiety, you need that it’s part of human survival you’ll never want to switch that off.
.
It’s achievable, you have to think it and yes it’s not easy, I was in a very deep dark hole with no ladder, I didn’t beleive I could, I didn’t know I could, what happened?
.
6 ms of panic attacks every 30 mims, gad (constant worrying catastrophic thoughts 24/7. just sitting in my safe place became the dark hole) Agoraphobia: too scared to move out of the bedroom door. ‘What’s left? I can’t stay like this, is suicide an option? No I’m too scared that would go wrong too’
.
This was the lowest I could go, there was no lower, as I thought it I was panicking, I couldn’t see, like literally couldn’t see, my ear drums were being attacked, I felt i would have a heart attack.
.
I wanted to end This, end the secret, end the fear, end the avoidance of the doctor, I wanted to change, I would do anything at that point, I became incredibly open to anything that could Help, but what did I have? Cancer?, a dicky heart? id gone crazy? Ididn’t care what is was after that I just knew I couldn’t do this alone.
I decided I want help, i want to change.
.
The doctor told me it was anxiety & panic, he offered me meds, that was the only thing I would not do, no I don’t want to be switched off, I want to do it naturally, he says it’s caused by stress, I want to try anything.
I tried relaxation techniques, I researched, I saw cbt therapist, I talked, wrote, I was open to any idea that you could reduce anxiety. I got strong enough to see the stress and do something about it.
.
I wanted to push, I was so tired of being scared I ran through the fire, fuck it, it’s the same as being scared in my room all alone, so just do it. & everytime I pushed through something that scared me I came alive.
How did I get out the hole with no ladder?
.
Anxiety symptoms made me feel like it was huge, it wasn’t, I thought it was… I stepped out.
