I love Robin Williams and this picture and quote sums up ‘my why’ ‘the reason I do what I do’ ‘why little legs exists’
This week has been challenging for me and a few things triggered my anxiety quite badly.
For 3 days this week I felt like I’d been totally sucked into a very very dark hole. I felt like something was pressing on my chest, sweaty palms, shortness of breath and a knot in my stomach that made me feel sick..... anxiety... she was back.
It’s been building up for a little while but she took hold and all I could do was lie in bed, hide in the dark and avoid the world. I totally shut down.
Some of my nearest and dearest knew and showed their support.
The kind words went over my head but I could feel the love.
After 2 days, I knew I had to put my big girl pants on and kick this b1tch in the ass.
I re read the kind words, I took my time to breath, practiced mindfulness, make a plan to run, to shower, read the kind words again, be grateful, know it’s ok not to be ok. Phoned the doctor for help, hugged my kids tight, thanked my hubby and planned to get back to classes.
Simples?? Not quite but I did it... and I feel the light flooding back in.
This dark spell fortunately didn’t last as I had to dig deep to practice what I preach.
I’m here for you.. I understand... reach out if you are struggling and believe you can kick anxiety’s ass!
