Sorry. My anxiety is building up so much. I have to carry on with my routine. Helping in a charity shop. Going to a craft group.

Can my anxiety grind this to a halt? I need to keep going

yeah it can render you totally ineffective and also give panic attacks.

I'd try cut down on something that creates anxiety to limit the amount whenever possible.

Until then just grind and make room for relaxing and getting energy back best you can. We can grind a long time but eventually if we don't listen to our bodies signals it will take a toll on us or worst case completely stop us from doing much for a long time.

Thanks. Well I've actually pulled out of going to an appt with my husband tomorrow and feel quite relieved about that.

I spent 3 days last weekend going to a wedding. I really enjoyed it but it was non stop. Although it didn't stress me, I wonder if it took a lot out of me.

Any stressful experience can definately be delt with. It may take hours or days but humans tend to adapt to their anxiety and have it go away with support from others and self encouragment. In regards to your question if anxiety has an end, that all depends. For everyone with any disorder be it anxiety related or not, there are couping mechanisms. Luckily for us, anxiety is highly easy to deal with using either medication, meditation and/or proper management. If your anxiety is panic attack related then you probably will expierence an increase in stress symptoms afterwards which can be anything from shaking to racing heart to muscle pain and abdominal discomfort. These do come and go and eventually subisde completely as far as I am aware. It is best to avoid when possible stress causing experiences.

Hi DerekV08

Thanks for your reply which I read but didn't reply. I feel bad about that.

Do you suffer from bad anxiety.

Mine is definitely getting worse. There is nothing that would normally stress me but I am finding many activities stressful now.

Usually keeping busy is good for me. Now I think I will have to find a balance. I like crochet so maybe that in between stressful stuff.

My gp increased a tablet and I'm hoping but worrying about it working.
