I had to take a break from all things connected with anxiety for the last few days. I had a setback on my road to being a better me. During this setback I learned that it's o.k. if I need meds. It's o.k. if they have to be increased for a while. I had to stop myself many times and remind myself to live in the moment. What a wonderful thing that is, to just live in the moment. I also learned not to beat myself up if I don't feel up to doing something. Today is my granddaughters 4th b-day party. It's a hour away. I've suffered greatly these last few days from IBS and a much higher anxiety level then I've had in the last few weeks. Today I called my son and explained I wasn't feeling up to it and we would celebrate with them another time. Thanks Soul to Soul for your supportive and special note. I feel so much better now. A huge weight has been taken off my mind and inside my intestines. I am not seeing this as failure in my battle with anxiety. I see this as acceptance and making the most of the day and the power I've been given. This gives me hope for the time we do make it to celebrate my beautiful granddaughter's b-day. This setback has also fueled me to keep looking for more ways and tools to take back my mind from anxiety.
