It’s a struggle but I’m doing all I can to overcome this and deal with it well LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Anxiety is indeed a big issue… How do you feel since you started dealing with it? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply It’s a struggle. Some days are worse than others but it’s hard because sometimes no matter what you do it won’t go away. I started a medicine for it two Thursdays ago and it’s helping but it hasn’t fully kicked in yet. I’m also still writing which does help and exercising and getting outside as much as possible. They help too. It’s just rough because I was doing well like not having anxiety for a while and then it snuck up on me and got really bad out of nowhere and stayed bad like 2 week long panic mode bad. I started developing trouble with acid reflux from it too and that made me decide to try medicine since my usual coping skills aren’t enough. We’ll see what happens from here. I’m just continuing to do what I do and staying positive. Do you have anxiety ? LikeLiked by 1 person That’s tough… Yes, I do have anxiety especially when it comes to social interactions with strangers. I also feel anxious whenever I need to write a new post for this blog, or when I don’t do the things I planned doing. And of course, I get anxious when I need to talk to the phone… Regardless the anxiety, I keep pushing myself forward through it every day. LikeLiked by 1 person Yours sounds a lot like mine.

I tend to lock up and even the words are as clear as day in my head, what outputs it’s often extremely diluted to the point of incoherence. The excercises i find helpful? Pause a single moment in time and write in depth details and description. Eventually the thought process muscles will translate into real time conversations.
