Hm. If you can’t miss work, do you have a local Med Express? Or maybe a PA at a local pharmacy that you can see when you’re off work?

have you been eating well, sleeping as much as you should be, exercising, and taking vitamins?

Oh punkin, sounds like a nice case of mid-winer malaise.  Think about it, we’re in the middle of winter, there’s not big holidays or things to look forward to and we’re at the mercy of a ground hog as far as when this crap is going to end…ugh.

I get really stressed out too…and I find that the best way to combat those anxious, ugly feelings is with pre-emptive positivity!

I always have at least ONE really fun, girly thing set up just for me a month, a massage, a facial, going to afternoon tea with a girlfriend, something to look forward to, it helps break up the monotony of the days going in and out.

I give myself little presents, when the opportunity and budget allows.  If I have to run to the store for some cat food or something, I always detour by the nail polish…it’s like $3 and totally makes my day!

Sundays are at home spa days, I give myself permission to skip out on one totally inane adult activity a week and finally, but most crucial for me.

At the end of the day, after dinner, and dishes, and snuggles and movies, I go up to our bathroom, turn out all of the lights, draw a hot bath, listen to Tibetan Singing Bowls and soak…it’s my way of letting the day go, reminding myself that I did everything I was supposed to today and taking the time to myself to be ready for tomorrow.

I don’t know if my wacky antics will help anyone else, but it works for me!

Feel Better Soon!

I’ve been in a place like that where I just need to cry.  What works for me, is quiet meditation everyday, sometimes more if needed, and it can be anywhere from 2 minutes to 30 minutes, just to calm my mind down.  I close my eyes, and just breathe, think about nothing.  For me it helps a lot.  i notice a huge difference when i don’t meditate.

If I need to cry, I do, I let it out.  Then, I refocus that energy somewhere else.  For example, this week I’ve been really sad thinking that having kids may not happen for us, so I worked out.  I took all of that negative energy and used it to fuel an ass-kicking workout.  The workout was a necessary distraction to give my brain a break, and it worked. 

Do you know what is triggering your need to cry?

@hiroshymatetrastar:  Hopefully the stress will back down, especially after the wedding. Can you take 20 minutes out of the day to make sure that you really really relax? The physical effects of stress can be very bad for you and your body

Have you tried taking magnesium citrate? It can make a world of difference for anxiety.

it’s probably all the stress and excitement (good and bad excitement).  Try and schedule some time every week to just do something enjoyable fo ryou – a bubble bath, shut yourself off from the world for an hour and read and drink a glass of wine.  WHatever is relaxing for you and will help you de-stress and forget about everything going on in your life. 

Also research some relaxing techniques and deep breathing exercises – they really do help!  Maybe you could get into meditation or yoga?  

Make sure you’re eating right, getting all the nutrients you need and getting enough sleep.  

Hope you feel better soon hun.

Exercise (you’ll burn off some of that nasty fight-or-flight adrenaline) and guided relaxation videos on YouTube.
