Sitting With Anxiety

Can't help but think that's been the title before on this blog.

I'm currently sitting with something that is causing me a lot of stress. Not going to list it, because I know I'd be doing that as a form of reassurance. It's not a big thing, but I've already been ruminating over it for an hour now, so I'm moving on to trying to let the thought float into my brain and then right back out.

This is not easy.


  1. Every life road is not easy. We are here to fight for our self and to be strong and that is one of the main points.Take care, i follow your blog for some time and i find it interesting. Good way to express your feelings.

  2. Oh, I know how hard it is, Ann! I am so incredibly proud of you, especially because you even fought the very strong temptation to list it, knowing that it would be reassurance seeking. Wow, is that huge progress. Hang in there. I promise it absolutely will get better with time. (Easier said than done - I know.) Hugs.

  3. Ann, I'm sorry you're going through this. But it will help in the long run. Hang in there!

  4. Ann - I had a spike the other day for the first time in a LONG time and it hit me like a ton of bricks and I have been anxious ever since. Trying to sit with the anxiety too. You've got my support. :o) What did I do differently this time? I PURPOSELY exposed myself to a few things. Purposely ramping up the anxiety. Not trying to make it all go away. Hard.

    1. I hope it works for you! It IS hard.

  5. Thanks for the kind words everyone. The anxiety dropped by this morning, as I knew it would. Now my goal is to not let myself just get swept up into the next anxious moment.

  6. Go Ann go! That was so brave of you. I had a bad spike this last week, I've moved home and college, but I'm getting slowly back on top of myself, and so are you. Keep fighting, you'll get through! :D
