Hi everyone!
What are people's opinions on anxiety blankets? It would make sense for them to work but really how well does it carry out its function?
I'm tempted to buy one to help me sleep at night but everywhere I've looked they're incredibly pricey and didn't want to get ripped off.
Any suggestions or experiences?

Buy a teddy bare.. They're soft and furry and none judgmental when you hug them :hug5:

How about knitting a blanket to help for anxiety, knitting is very theraputic and will keep you calmer whilst at it, by day, and sleep well via the knitted blanket, by night, you would only have to pay for needles, and wool.

I find knitting difficult because I suffer from tremors in my hands, although it isn't as severe as in my legs it still makes it difficult to make accurate movements.
On saying that though I'm able to cook and have been doing so to keep me busy recently, I've been making traditional recipes from my mum in the past week which has taken my mind off my illness. The only issue I have is that it's ruddy well hard to cut things :LOL:

Hi Hoggie Poggie,

Interesting about or in my case slight tremors, because I would always have slight to moderate shaking in my right hand and arm, thinking, a few things could be, then I discovered, I had a boil brew up yep, on the arm, and that was whole cause of the problem, I can now hold the hook part of phone at home, much much better without a shaking hand and arm!

I remember your case, slightly about tremors, would you be able to consider, to get maybe either proper medical help, or research about side affects medication, which means, your taking med, to help control your tremors, just a tip, there.

I don't currently take medication as I have only been referred in the past month to a specialist, I'm going to bring my tremors up the next time I see someone
