    Feeling bloody awful

    I'm just having a really hard time at the moment managing my anxiety. It is quite literally out of control. It is not a panic like anxiety, my heart doesn't beat too fast and I don't get breathless or faint or anything, I just feel so, so overwhelmed. I have these thoughts going round, and...

    Evil thoughts

    They're worse again and flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, self doubt, it's all going round and round in my head, what I'd like to do to those horrible people and wish would happen to them. Apart from that I've been taking the meds, trying to do a bit more to regain some sort of balance in life...

    Meds reduce some symptoms

    Meds reduce some symptoms but they don't make me any more socially functional/less socially inept. I'm still a square peg struggling to get in a round hole.

    It doesn't get better!

    Why do people keep saying that time heals everything? It bloody well doesn't. I have spent the day in a black cloud of despair. I went to the cheap shop to get some shoe racks with my daughter and her boyfriend. Something, what I don't know, triggered me and I crashed. I could only just...

    If I could think of a title that would be a good start

    My head is fuzzed up with cotton wool clouds of generalised anxiety. Concentrating is hard.... I search round and round for the words to explain myself (in this post, and in general) and even when I locate some words making a clear, concise, understandable sentence is struggle. A whole paragraph...
