How to make the best of an otherwise boring summer
4FourTwo reviews I’ve had this problem for months.
I’m trying to be a little more approachable and talk about what’s going on, but the problem is that I’m not really looking for feedback.
I’m a busy, busy person.
I have too much to do and I want to make a few more friends, so I have to go off and do something else.
So, as much as I like to think I know what I want out of life, I’m really not that smart.
Instead of getting to know what it’s like to have an anxiety disorder, I have a different kind of problem, a problem that comes with all the things that make life so enjoyable.
This is a problem I’ve been suffering from for the past three years.
The first time I saw a therapist was in the spring of 2016.
I was a 21-year-old student in college.
I had an anxiety issue that was really just in my head.
It’s really easy to talk about anxiety and say, ‘I’m just going to go get some Xanax,’ but if you don’t know what’s causing the anxiety, it’s not going to help.
A year and a half later, I am still feeling like this.
I’ve got a lot of stuff going on.
I can’t be bothered to go to work.
I don’t get to do any of my classes.
I feel like I’m living in a parallel universe, and I don, too.
So I was really concerned that if I was to go back to school, my anxiety would be in my life for the rest of my life.
I started to have a panic attack at work.
The second time I went to a therapist, she was like, ‘You need to take it easy.’
I said, ‘Well, I’ll take it.
I will go home and sit down with my family and have some food.
But I will not go to school.
I’ll do my work.’
She was like ‘Yeah, but that’s the only thing that matters.
What’s going to keep me sane?’
Then I met a friend who was an occupational therapist.
‘You know what?
I’m going to work at my job.
And then I’m like, I know I need help, but how can I get it?’
And then I started getting more anxiety.
She had this beautiful book that said to take some time to get things out of your system and just really look at your thoughts.
She had a really good way to teach me this.
You’re not going home until you’re comfortable enough to go home, she said.
When I came to therapy, I thought I was just going back to the same things that I was doing when I was 21.
I thought that I’d have to be careful.
But she said, “You have to learn to let go of the anxiety.
That’s when you can have a conversation with yourself.”
She taught me how to do that.
If I’d never had the anxiety that I have now, it would have been a completely different conversation.
In the meantime, I’ve learned to let the anxiety go and let it go to the side, so now I know it’s in my brain.
I know when I’m in a situation, I think of all the good things that could happen if I just let it.
At the end of the day, it was just a matter of letting it go, but I think it helped me to have the time to do it.
I feel like it’s been a year and half, and now I’m back to where I was before, and there’s nothing else to do.
This is something I’ve struggled with for a long time.
For three years, I was afraid to go out.
I went out with my friends and went to the movies and went out to bars.
But the anxiety was really bad.
My friends would be like, “I’m scared, I can hardly sleep, and then I feel this terrible, intense feeling in my stomach.”
They would say things like, “I don’t like you, you’re crazy.”
It’s really difficult.
And it’s hard to let it all go.
Then, I started going to the doctor.
I got checked into a mental health clinic for about two months.
They took my medical history, and it said my anxiety had gone.
My anxiety wasn’t really an issue.
Everything was okay.
Eventually, though, I ended up with anxiety again, and the anxiety is still there.
I just don’t want to let that happen again.
If you have an issue, just keep going.
Keep going, and if you can’t do it, just try to let yourself relax and be comfortable.
You can do it the old-fashioned way, like, when you have a party and you’re feeling really
