Anxiety and Depression

My silence means I’m tired of fighting, and now there is nothing left to fight for, my silence means I’m tired of explain myself to you, my silence means I have adapted the changes to my life and I don’t want to complain or make a fuss . Having anxiety and depression is like being terrified and exhausted at the same time it’s the fear of failure but no urge to be productive it’s an unbeaten urge to have friends but hate socialising it’s wanting to be alone all the time yet not feel lonely, it’s a bunch of feeling that strike you all at once yet feeling numb next and feeling nothing at all . Being extremely irritable and restless with an unbeatable amount of exhaustion yet  suffer with insomnia and unable to get enough sleep day in day out. But remember this the caterpillar thought she was dyeing yet she became a beautiful butterfly.never give up hope to become a butterfly.

For as long as I can remember I’ve always suffered with Anxiety and Depression  since my mid teens.

At the age of 16 I realised something wasn’t right about these weird feelings and thoughts I had

But that’s a story for another time, what I would like to share with you all is some of my coping strategies I have learned over the past couple of years or so that I’ll share with anyone who is saying they are suffering

For as long as I can remember I’ve always suffered with Anxiety and Depression  since my mid teens.

At the age of 16 I realised something wasn’t right about these weird feelings and thoughts I had

But that’s a story for another time, what I would like to share with you all is some of my coping strategies I have learned over the past couple of years or so that I’ll share with anyone who is saying they are suffering and dont Know where to start.

and dont Know where to start.

My first one is to Take some time out to be yourself , now that’s easy said than it’s done,

Some ideas I have tried and tested are Yoga, it’s a relaxing atmosphere, gentle breathing and really Healthy for my mind and body, best of all you don’t need to interact with anyone.my favourite part was at the end of the class, where the instructor asked you to lay on your mat cover your self with the blanket and close your eyes while she talks to you about something …. I never remembered what as I was snoring at this point, there is gentle music on after 10 minutes then she starts to talk and wake you up, this was the best part of my yoga I use to attend after I was given the all clear from the GP after the birth or my child, I swear I only went to get that ten whole minutes of sleep undisturbed.

Practice meditation there’s so many apps and you tube videos at your finger tips that’s help with this,

I learned that stepping back from a problem that is causing these feelings will help clear your mind, reset and balance your self then I always brain storm the problem visually and break it down in to manageable tasks.

For those who are grounded to being at home, Take a hot bath with your favourite bubble bath, hair mask, and favourite body wash, read a book or try connect with a friend while your relaxing, light a candle and if permitted a glass of wine, tea or herbal tea.
