Hi all,


I'm very well, no anxeities up this evening, during the evening this is, no wristbands on, and I have reduced my dose slightly by 5ml from 25 down to 20ml. I am a mild mental health problematic case, me. I only always have mild tendancies of anxiety, or paranoia, nothing too severe at all times, if that makes sense.


Not sure about the weather - bitterly cold wet sort of weather for tomorrow, am looking very much forward to getting to casino, with Father. Well, i felt like having a go, with slot machines, before I'm away on holiday, and even though there will be slots, on the ship.


I go off in a couple of weeks, on holiday.

Oh that's a point, I'm not even feelign anxious in terms of travel, holiday.

Natalie.

Hi all,


I am going to wear my bands today. I can easily feel anxious about long distance bus travel, ie, North West of London, to get to, so by wearing them today, I should feel very much easier, and, to keep them on for tomorrow.

Hi all,

I'm very well non anxieties wise today. I am not even anxious regarding and though really looking forward for my parents and mine holiday coming up. So I feel, these travel sickness bands, in which I discovered a trick for anxiety and to a degree paranoia-are doing a marvellous job, at keeping these two ailments down and at bay. At the moment, I don't feel even pressurised unlike I normally do, in terms of hassle and bussle of airports. And, in a matter of weeks, I shall be going on holiday with my parents, and really really looking forward to being on ship for a week, and, seeing cousinship family who reside in a part of the US. Oops, shoudl I have hinted, I'll apologise for that. Anyway, no anxieties, nor paranoia at the moment this week.

Hi all,

Not well with a different set of my conditions, and this is physical general health, not mental health, I had completely forgotten to put my bands on, to keep anxeities and to a degree paranoia levels at bay - you know what, I have been absolutely fine, without the bands on for today. So I'll leave them off, for the remainder of the week, and I'll see how I'll get on without the bands on. I am with the potentially bad weather trying to rearrange volunteering for next week on Tuesday, and it is hoped Tuesday will be a marginall milder and better weather day.



No acute problems of anxieites or paranoaia to think of.

Hi all,


Should it so happen, I haven't hadmy travel wrist bands on all day, and not also for during the evening, and my anxieties and paranoia levels are very much well behaved.

Hi all,

I'm fine, very well. Anxieties wise, no problems to report at all. Admittedly, I haven't got the bands on today, I have been a bit forgetful in wearing them for this afternoon, I had them on this morning though. Just keeping with medication, and at a certain required level of dose, and I'm ok, no anxieties up at all, plus what's more important also, I'm sleeping very well overnighters. Which means, I can then mentally and generally function ok in the daytime.

Hi all,


I was beginning to feel anxious for no apparent reason, I felt to put my travel sickness motion bands on, and I have been fine since, and only on 20ml for the time being. I might increase the dose up to 25ml in time for travelling to be away in the early days on holiday, I'll have a think abouit that in the next week.

Hi all,

I was starting to feel, that the travel bands were gripping me, so I have now removed them, from an hour back. I am fine, no anxieties, and to a degree, no paranoia feelings.

hI ALL,


My anxieties are very well manageable today, in fact very well behaved and that is without wearing the travel sickness bands. I have resumed taking my high but not too high dose of medication, which controls my anxiety levels much better. And to a degree also, paranoia levels.


I'm not even feeling very anxious at the moment, in terms of holiday coming up next week.

Hi all,


Even thoiugh I have reduced my dose for today, and that was during the course of the late morning, since then, I have been, fine, hardly anxious, about my trip coming up, holiday this is, and I am not even wearing my wristbands which significantly do help to calm down certain ailments of mental health. I'm very well at the moment.

Hi all,


I'm very anxious and paranoia today. Even though, I am on my high not too high dose. I have decided to put my bands on, and they have calmed me right down. Mind you, I had another 2nd disturbed night, of waking up at 4.30am. A lot lately I could sleep very very well, now, it has changed, and I am very sensitive to mental health problems also.

Just an update, I'm fine, am still wearing my bands, I am not risking to remove those off, certainly not before Sunday, which will be the proper start of our holiday, after long haul flying, recovering for a couple of days, then, board the cruise on Sunday 6th.


I'm now not anxious hardly at all, nor paranoia. I was feeling very tired this morning, what with, ah, having to have been up and about from 4.30am! That's the 2nd night, that's happened.

Hi all,

My anxiety is returning, now to help me out, and apart from listening to music, and needleworking, I am concentrating on my breathing, getting deep breathing done. I have done the first set, and I feel marginally better. I'll do this a few times on a day. My hearing voices are fine, and my paranoia has now returned to its normal statuses, it's the anxiety causing me to feel unsettled at the moment, and I didn't have a decent good night sleep groan, not again, also, I think, tomorrow, I'll drop the doseage back, and in the hope I can then sleep much better waking up at 7 or 8, rather than at 4.30am. To wake up at 4.30am, hasn't happened, ina very long long long time.



i am still wearing my travel bands, to enable me to feel calmer and then relaxed overall. I am just wondering as we doing a independant combined holiday of cruise and land based in the other country, so I am feeling now, rather apprensive, slightly. Hopefully not, I won't explode. And I might take the as and when med, for this purpose and cause.
