... crushing anxiety?
Putting myself out there posting this, but I am almost crippled with anxiety at the moment. That’s why I have been absent from the site for the last few months. Real life problems have triggered me and I now wake up every day with a feeling of dread and spiraling anxious thoughts. I sit and go through them all logically to try and get perspective but it’s so exhausting.
Logically I know I will deal with the problems but it doesn’t stop the fear. I run on the spot for the endorphins, avoid alcohol, practice breathing exercises, try to focus on helping others blah blah blah but it’s not receding.
Antidepressants are not an option.
Any ideas? Anyone else facing this?
