I am having a battle with anxiety at the moment, I thought it was coming from nowhere as I was not thinking thoughts of "I'm useless" or "I'm fat", but when I think about it as you do with CBT(cognitive behavioural therapy ) it seems to be coming with my issues with self worth.
How do you get any self worth when
- You don't work.
- You can't keep your house spotless due to physical limitations
- Your not the perfect Mother or Wife.
- Self image.
In the past a lot of my self esteem would come from work, I loved going to work and doing a
I know if I don't do certain things it affects my husband or son, so why does it feel different? Why is it that I don't feel important? Don't get me wrong, they try to make me feel important and loved but it's not enough, I need to feel it for myself.
I feel my brain is dying, I need something stimulating. The trouble is I don't have the self discipline to sit in front of the computer and teach myself something that I feel is interesting.
I guess I need to work on the anxiety issues I have, but it's hard to get passed feeling anxious to work on feeling anxious, if that makes sense.
I want to scream! Maybe I should, it might make me feel better. No it didn't just made my throat sore.
I find it hard to sit with anxiety, I don't know why. It can't kill me so why do I try and avoid it.
How do you deal with anxiety?
