anxiety - my coping tool

Hello fellow anxiety-sufferers.

Do you recall the many times that you've been all worried about nothing? But you only know this after having wasted a lot of time and energy feeling so so so worried. And then at the end, you're fine!

Next time when you find yourself excessively worrying about something, try to remember one of these positive incidents from the past. It's become a powerful tool for me to manage my anxiety issues.

Hi Grandy,

Thank you for your encouragement.

I had a few very good days but today is definitely not good. A million what-ifs circling inside my head. Feels like I'm just sitting here feeling spaced out until bedtime. Bedtime is another beast of its own .... that's when my ocd-rituals kick in and I can never get to sleep as early as I had planned.

There is something that I'm really worried about at the moment but I know the pre-emptive worry is always worse than the actual thing.

Just keep telling myself that I'll feel ok again once this has passed.
