My anxieties

I remember my father telling me that he thought my mother had claustrophobia. Looking back I now think she was dealing with anxiety. When it comes to my neurological issues, my intuition helps channel my thoughts, so that I can live my life with less anxiety in it.

Although beliefs also play an important part in our lives, certain belief systems cannot always help us deal with anxiety in that way. Since the assault two years ago, my life has become very stressful. My anxiety has come in on the back of that.

Anxiety is a feeling of fear when we’re faced with difficult situations, sometimes threatening. For me it tends to happen around an issue I can’t bring closure on. My anxiety (although different for everyone) now is attributed to not being able to move on from the assault.

Anxiety is like an adrenalin rush. It motivates us so that we have the ability to sort our problems out. Unfortunately, for me it works the other way. With the bigger problems like the assault, as hard as I tried I couldn’t see a way forward. It usually depends on what’s being thrown at me and how others cope for themselves that brings about my anxiety.

I usually have to walk around or go outside so that I can clear my head and collect my thoughts together. That tends to work.

  1. I think anxiety gets to all of us at some point in our lives. Others tend to suffer with it all their life.

    I have anxiety sometimes but as soon as I know things are going to be alright I’m okay. I’ve had it all my life really.

    I think a lot stems from my stay in the hospital when I was 8 and diagnosed with diabetes. I was in the hospital for 3 weeks.

    I don’t want to do that again!

    1. I think you’re right. Anxiety comes in on the back of an experience we struggle with.

      The important part is how we perceive and deal with those anxieties so that we can move forward and quickly. Depending on the anxiety it’s easier said than done!

  2. I agree. It’s hard to work your way through your anxiety but it can be done.

    I’m curious as to what is going to be your next step. Reading about you dealing with these problems is truly inspirational and is already helping me deal even with just small problems in my life.

    1. Thanks Anne. From one day to the next I never know what springs to mind, that’s my honest answer. I just work on my resolve one day at a time.

      I’m pleased that my blogs help you deal with some of your problems. Thank you for your continued support.
