@TankGirl:  September 22?  It’s getting close so you’re bound to have anxieties, it’s normal.  They say things always seem worse in the darkness of night.  Deep breaths, fresh air, and just say to yourself ‘this too will pass’ – someone said that to me years ago, and in my times of stress I just say it to myself.  Whatever panics you have, they WILL pass – time keeps moving on.  I don’t know if you’re UK or not, but Bach’s rescue remedy is good for anxieties – it’s a herbal thing that is made from natural remedies/flower extracts and really takes the edge off a panic – they also do a night version (very tasty)!  Often the ‘unknown’ anxiety is worse because you can’t place it and so can’t put it right.  It’ll be fine.  I’ve been awake from 3.30am because the dogs woke me, but from then I’ve flitted in and out of sleep fretting about all sorts.  I have a wedding dress that doesn’t fit and my next fitting is two weeks before the wedding and I’m sure it still won’t fit………..

 

Embrace it.  Your day is nearly here – harness the energy and remain focused on walking to your wonderful H2B and walking away his wife Laughing

I’m a stress bag πŸ™‚  I also have a history of anxiety and it just gets really bad when I have things going on that I’m passionate about…right now that’s grad school and wedding planning for me.  Both make me completely insane.

But as I go through these things in my life I realize (after the fact) that I spent a lot of time worrying and putting so much pressure on myself and of course things turned out great b/c I’m thorough.  But it was just so much wasted energy worrying.

I learn this lesson sometimes daily, I’ll freak, calm down get it done, and then look back and go wth did I freak? 

I guess my advice is to stay in the moment and appreciate the small stuff.

@TankGirl:   Hi there wedding date twin!  ((HUGS!))

Any ideas about what you’re so stressed about?  Do you feel it’s strictly wedding-related or is anything else going on?

@TankGirl:  That’s a lot to have going on all at the same time, I feel for you.  Have you talked to your Fiance and told him you need his help and support?

@TankGirl:  I have a history of anxiety and periods of inability to sleep as well. My biggest word of advice is to seek professional help. You don’t necessarily have to see a psychiatrist (your family doctor will do) but you should talk with someone so that you don’t continue to suffer. Its a vicious cycle where anxiety can cause you to lose sleep thenyour lack of sleep is contributing to your anxiety. A doctor can provide you with temporary measures to ease your anxiety and help you feel better.

@TankGirl:  Haha, it’s good that he has so much confidence in you!  πŸ™‚  However, I’m sure that only adds to your stress.  Hopefully since the day will soon be here you’ll be able to get settled down and get a stress-break.

Hi date twin!! πŸ˜€ I feel for you… I too tend to be more on the anxious side and I’ve been having WICKED stress dreams for the past week or so about the wedding. Imagining everything that could possibly go wrong and waking up with my heart RACING and unable to get back to sleep. I think I woke up at 3am this morning and stared at my clock for 3 hours.

On top of the wedding, Fiance is leaving today for a business trip (only two days, thank GOD) and I get super anxious whenever he has to fly… also I just started a new job, and have a giant test coming up in a month which I’ve been trying to study for on top of wedding planning. Stress central over here!! For me, it helps to get out and do something… go the gym, a run, whatever, I imagine I’m sweating out the stres for lack of a better description… it helps…

Take care of yourself the next few days… try to relax as much as you can… it will ALL be better come Saturday! At that point, no matter what happens, you’ll be married! πŸ˜‰
