Why is it that when you’re not feeling great anxiety creeps in and manages to make you feel worse.

I have the flu at the moment, I’m just back from holiday. I feel self conscious and unattractive in my own body. I’m over thinking an insane amount to the point where I’m questioning things in my relationship and choices I’ve made in the last while. I’m worried about starting college and have a sick feeling in my stomach over the littlest things.

I feel like anxiety is beating me down. My self esteem has definitely taken a hit since I’ve gotten sick, I feel gross. My hearts racing right now, no amount of meditation and breathing will calm it. I’d love to ask my anxiety for a day of peace, even just tomorrow.

Hope everyone is doing well:)

Hi,
Hope you feel better very soon.
I think many of us have nerves when starting college or a new job, try to keep busy when you feel better it will distract you.
I hope everything goes okay.
Good luck

Thank you, I think it’s worse because right now all I can do is rest. I’ve no energy to do anything but my mind is still rampant with thoughts. Can’t wait to be busy again

You are in a difficult situation, hope you can concentrate on getting better.
You will meet lots of others who might be anxious to at college.
Take care

Hi kindkiwi. Things are always worse when you feel tired and poorly. I'm jetlagged and have felt low in myself too. Be extra gentle and kind to yourself. You will build yourself back up again. Lots of love, veggie soup and warm hugs.

Hello Kind kiwi,

It sounds like the general exposure of the whole holiday has triggered off some of your anxiety (Hope you had a fantastic time by the way!)

There are times like these where it is best to get snuggled up in something warm, with a warming drink and some company!
And not to think too hard about what is to come.
Enjoy the moment! xx

I was so sick last week and had a horrible panic attack during. It's just something else to stress about. Hope you feel better quick.

Hi there,

I hope you start to feel better soon. Sometimes when we're feeling under the weather physically, we start to feel low emotionally. Whenever I get a cold or the flu I feel more anxious than normal, and not to mention during my time of the month. During times like these we need to practice self care and be kind to ourselves. I'm sure if you give it some time things will definitely get better and you'll be back to your usual self. Best of luck xx
