New member here, just joined and am looking for some advice, or even if anyone has similar experiences to share. I can go months feeling relatively anxiety free, just normal levels. Then one day, something triggers it, in my recent case it was screwing up at a new job and feeling like I was losing control of the way people felt about me at work, or losing my job. This weekend I completely spiraled, Saturday wasn't bad, because I had my daughters concert to go to and spent some time with friends. But Sunday, I didn't get out of bed until noon, cried(which I never do), moped around, just was a general mess thinking about having to go back to work Monday and face things. I managed to drag myself in, and it turned out it wasn't quite as bad as I thought it would be, still stressful, but felt better coming home. But the state I am in right now, I was good for a few hours and then managed to find something else to worry about(paying for college/general finances). Now, I'm back at work in the same state I was yesterday, just worrying about something else instead.
TL;DR Can be relatively anxiety free for months, one trigger and I am off and running, worrying about one thing, finding out it'll be ok, then moving on to something else within hours. Never giving myself or my mind a break. It is affecting my life, work, relationships, pretty much everything in a negative way.
Anyone have any advice?

I am doing so much to feel better, like SO MUCH, and spending so much money on therapy and acupuncture and herbs and neurofeedback and it just feels like it is taking so long to feel better. I'm so tired and frustrated. I'll...
Hello, all. Would anyone mind sharing how the journaling part of this works?
