I'm not doing good today. I'm once again Anxious and Fearful. I live with family in a house thank goodness, but at the same time when the news is on their TVs all day, it forces me to stay in my room more. I just can't seem to find a way to manage all this new stuff, this new life we are trying to live. It is hard to see the end of this and the lasting changes it will bring to all our lives once it's all over. When will that be anyway? I don't do well with long unending situations. I hope I can get more sleep tonight which I know will help but it's been hard to achieve this last week too.
Anyone else having any success with the day to day distractions or projects? I keep telling myself that I can't get into any long term projects but the reason why is lost on me at this point. Could it be the Anxiety itself creating that feeling?? What do you all think?
One positive thing happened, my Dad and I worked together yesterday and successfully baked a loaf of white bread. It is really good too. I put half in the freezer to make sure it didn't spoil. Next, I'm going to bake some muffins possibly Orange Cranberry.
I'd love to hear what you all are doing to keep busy and distracted without talk of what is going on, just how you are coping.
Be Well All
Hi, I'm new to the group. My husband wants a divorce; I don't. He left our house 8 months ago. I still can't accept this new reality. My anxiety is off the charts and I'm depressed. Any advice? All I can do is stay in bed and ruminate. I am getting therapy; I'm in an outpatient DBT group ( no groups now due to coronavirus -- just telephone sessions with therapist). Thanks.
