    Hi there,

    I’ve suffered anxiety all of my life, but the past month it has gotten out of control. I have seen my dr and my meds increased and am seeing a psychologist.

    Sometimes I just need to hear it from people that know what it feels like, that I will get through this, and I will feel myself again. It’s not always easy to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Will I get through this?

    Will I be ok again?

    I really need hope that life will be sunny once again.

    Thank you

    Hi Petal22,

    yes my dr suggested I do at least 10mins of meditation everyday, just finished my second night of it.
    thank you for your suggestions and kindness ☺️

    Hi TB83,

    As a person with lifelong anxiety I hear ya. I am happy to hear you are mediating. How did it go?

    Sometimes focusing on breathing is all i get to through guided meditation, ah well.

    Happy you're on your journey. You got this!

    That’s great that you are meditating.... I feel meditation really helped my anxiety...when I could feel myself getting anxious I could revert back to what my meditation taught me...... and I would be at ease 😊

    I listened to a guided meditation for watching thoughts.... it taught me to be a bystander of my thoughts and not get caught up in them.... it’s amazing I still watch my thoughts now..... we can all learn so much and keep growing 😊

    have you practiced mindfulness? That’s great too 😊

    I’m happy to help you I know how anxiety feels..... it will get better for you 😊 keep going 😊

    if you have any questions or want to chat I’m here 😊

    Hi TB83,

    As a person with lifelong anxiety, I completely understand. Meditating is a great way to sort the thoughts. One of my biggest thing that I took away from one of my psychologist was to find 'Your happy place' similar to meditating. Something to I use day to day no matter I am if its getting a bit much, just close your eyes and focus on a place, something or a memory that makes you happy and let you mind focus on that. I know that helped me when I couldn't meditate.

    Your never alone in this. To quote one of my favourite songs when I'm feeling like I'm having a "bad" day.

    'You'll be okay
    The sun will rise
    To better days'

    M
