The Perfect Day

So, I went to bed at 10 with double ambien and slept well.  Also, before I bed I read my verses I'm memorizing, some Scripture, wrote in my Journal and read Neil Anderson's "In Christ list"  This morning I got up a little late, weighed myself and am down a pound from last week, did my exercises, got some important phone calls made, went to a friends to drop something off.  Came home and took my 1pm-3pm nap, got up, taught piano, pulled out my paints and made 2 cards ... and then had a panic attack.  WHY???  I ate all my meals & snacks.  I took all my meds on time, and I had enough sleep.  WHY???  No matter what I do, it still hits me.  Every night.  It won't go away.
 
I see my new therapist tomorrow.  Perhaps she'll wave her magic wand and I'll be all better.

Prayer for Anxious People
Father, I pray for (name one or more) and others in my circle of family and friends who are carrying heavy loads...

Your Word says an anxious heart weighs a person down, and this is how I think they must feelas if they\'re carrying heavy loads, more than they can bear. When they feel upset and beside themselves, calm them down and comfort them with the assurance of Your love. Help them not be overwhelmed by anxious thoughts. (Proverbs 12:25a; Psalm 94:19)

Our hearts are not supposed to be troubled; but that\'s their strugglehelp them trust You and the Lord Jesus, as I know they must. Help them understand that You are the One who makes a way when things seem impossible; nothing is too hard for You! (John 14:27; Isaiah 43:19; Jeremiah 32:17; Luke 1:37)

Help them be faithful to You and to the way You want them to live, for You guard the lives of those who are faithful; You protect them and never turn away from them. Help them know You as their fortress, as the rock in whom they take refuge, as One who is good, whose love endures forever, whose faithfulness continues through all generations. (Psalm 97:10; Proverbs 2:8; Psalm 37:28; 94:22; 100:5)

I read some place to defy the anxiety to come. Plan for it and tell it you want it to come now, because you are ready for it. Apparently when \"you\" are in control it doesn\'t happen. My attacks used to come in the morning, I was always in a dither about what to do first. I found if I went for a walk first thing, spent time praising the Lord, thanking Him for the beautiful nature and enjoying it, then when I got home I just had to get into getting the things done for the day.
