Does anyone else get this thing when you're lying in bed at night - you're about to drop off into a nice sleep, when suddenly your brain decides to wake you up with a jolt of anxiety? I'm having this most nights lately, happened about four times last night. What's that about? 😫

^ I get that occasionally. And the racing heart thing. I put it down to anxiety with mysef because it doesn't happen when i'm feeling okay.

Like butter that's been spread very thin.

Like a loser.
At work we were sitting about waiting for some work to come in, people were chatting to each other etc... except me. I was just stood there like a lemon not saying anything.
I was just watching and listening to people thinking why can't I be like that? Why can't I speak in a group?
I think most people take it for granted to be able to do it.
It feels so debilitating.

Anxious
I think about giving my resignation, about social anxiety, whether or not things will improve.

Take it slowly. Are you able to go back not for a full day at first or are you supposed to be straight back to normal?

I'm planning to only go for a couple of days this week which will probably be unpopular.
I have been struggling for months with anxiety at work, the only good thing about catching covid was not being able to go to work.
Unfortunately I've now had nearly 2 weeks to work myself into a state about going back.

^ That sounds like a good idea. It's not that unusual for people to still be feeling extra tired etc after they've had covid so you can use that reason if you need to. Sorry you've been feeling so much anxiety.

Like utter utter crap. I'm not going to say why because I don't want everyone going on about it.

Feeling a bit under the weather today, my bloody knees are aching and stopped me from going out for a cycle along the coast road, other than that can't complain.

@ anxiouslondoner - I hope whatever is making you feel utterly crap can be resolved and you feel much better soon



I had a very productive day so I'm feeling pleasantly tired and achey tonight. I took some stuff to the tip and managed to tidy up my mum's garden so the house still looks a bit lived in. I think keeping myself busy could possibly be the key to feeling just a little less miserable and fatigued.

Been feeling awful lately, but I found out yesterday that a cousin from Japan is coming over to visit in a few weeks. I haven't seen her for nearly three years so I'm excited about having something to look forward to, but at the same time panicking a bit about what to do while she's here. I obviously want to show her as much as possible since she's never been before (she'll thankfully be seeing various London sights on her own before coming up here), but I hate doing stuff all day every day like that. I can only think of a morning of things so far and I've got four days to fill.

I don't know how I feel.
I'm not anxious but I'm not calm, I don't feel right but I don't know what's wrong.

Yes, how did you guess, lol

Although I can occasionally visit my son because his Uni is only an hour or so away (two hours or so if you include the return journey) several weeks of not seeing him feels like three years when he's always lived under the same roof and I've seen him every day. I'm feeling so lost and purposeless in my life and would have turned to my mum for a bit of support accept she passed away in March. I'm sure a 'normal' person in my position would pursue some interests, join a group or two and make some friends but that's easier said than done when you suffer with SA. I want to make the most of how ever many years I have left before I'm nothing but cosmic dust but the wretched anxiety is making it impossible.

So sorry for the vent
