Today Has Been A Day Where My Anxiety Defeated Me



Recommended Posts

Isn't it wonderful to wake up some days and feel like you are ready to take anything? But on the other side of the bed, there's anxiety badgering you about the million and one things that will go wrong today. People would call me over-emotional, some would tell me to move past my problems and carry on. But they don't understand that I can't just put the things that worrying me or dragging me down and never look back. Today has been a day where my anxiety defeated me but posting here is my way of taking back control, It might be temporary, and I have accepted that, but I’ll bounce back because I always do.

You didn't say if your anxiety was specifically related to your upcoming surgery, but yeah, I think it's pretty normal to be all over the map while you prepare for this.

If you're talking about chronic anxiety, then perhaps it's time to talk to your doc or a therapist? All these body changes can mess with our meds/dosages, etc. And I know for me, personally, this process has brought up some issues I didn't expect. I plan to find a therapist who has experience dealing with bariatric patients, both to address issues that might keep me from being successful, but also the things that have surfaced.

Take things one minute, one hour, one day at a time!

I seriously suffered from anxiety for years. I understand not being able to move past something and it can get the better of us! Since taking Paxil XR and Abilify, I feel like a new person! It’s like one day a lightbulb went on. I could see things so differently and handle things so well! Ask your doctor about them. Best wishes!!!💕
