Suffering from anxiety is hard. Sometimes it makes me feel “stuck”. What I mean is I’ll be doing fine for a week or two…taking diligent care of myself and getting out and then there comes a day when I might have to change plans or something and stay in. It’s like, the longer I stay in the house, the harder it is for me to get out!
I begin to feel anxious when planning to go to the gym the next day. Where are those feelings coming from? Am I afraid to go out now? Do I not want to be around people? What is it? I’ve had doctors’ appointments this week, but it’s been a week since I’ve gone to the gym…I was doing fine before, but now it’s like I have to coax myself into going back. Once I get there though, I’m fine. And if I keep going, I’m fine, but if I have to skip for any reason, I feel lost and have to start all over again finding the confidence to get out.
People who don’t struggle daily with anxiety have no idea what a day in our lives is like. They can’t even imagine. I hate the way anxiety always has me second guessing myself. It makes me afraid of the normal things in life. But I won’t stop fighting. I can’t.

I struggle with anxiety as well, it is awful, it affects every area of your life. I try hard to practice mindfulness and work though my emotions and the situations of life
Yeah, therapy has really helped with working thru my emotions. I’m so glad you stopped by!
Thank you and likewise! I am happy that you did too 😊
I have anxiety too and I know exactly how you feel. Even normal outings give me anxiety sometimes for no reason. I try to socialise as much as I can so I don’t become too reclusive. All we can do is keep going and trying.
