So it turns out I have probably always had anxiety but had been managing it in my own way and I just looked at it as a personality quirk that I would sometimes let things play on my mind.
More recently though I have begun struggling and increasingly felt like everything is on top of me.
I think this started to get worse after loosing my mother last year and also recently we had our third child.
everywhere I look and read says to talk about things, but I’m very logic driven, so struggling to explain how I’m feeling makes me feel worse.
Now that I’m more aware about what’s going on, I thought I could start to manage it again, but when I’m aware I’m not being my best, again it gets worse.
Other advise says to “take time for yourself” and “find some activities you enjoy to help balance your mental state” but one trigger for my anxiety is feeling like I have too much to do between work, family and other commitments, so it seems impossible to help my anxiety by doing other activities, when time to do what I do now makes me anxious.
I hope this makes some sense, and wonder if anyone else has any advice on interrupting this sort of vicious circle?
Hello, my name is Sharon and I have narcolepsy. I am trying to figure out if forgetfullness and difficulty with communication affects other peolpe with narcolepsy. My husband tells me I am terrible with communication.
I woke up this morning and I was so scared of I know not what. Palpitations, stomach churning usual things, except that for the 1st time ever my lip was quivering. I managed to get moving and did some housework, now its the afternoon, although my lip isnt quivering I am nervy to say the least of it. The day is dragging on and on.
