Just when I got through a super stressful week and came out okay, I break down and start crying for no reason. Every time I think I'm okay, this happens. I don't know what to do.

Got through Monday but missed all my classes on Tuesday. Bad bout of depression when I woke up but I feel better and I'm going to give myself a break and try to do better tomorrow.

I can't breathe properly and I'm on the verge of a panic attack. The only person who helps is my boyfriend and he's not here he's resting because he's ill. Ldrs suck. I have no idea what to do.

What is the worst thing that can happen if you don't pass your exams? Can you retake them? What about the assignments, can you hand the in later? Can you talk to someone at your school/uni? You can only do your best, that is all anyone can ask for! ❤️

The only person who can truly help you is you, not another. You have strong interoceptive awareness. You were able to identify the irregular, shallow breathing, the heart palpitations, the visceral discomfort. Good body awareness.

24 Feb 2018 ·

You can undo w/5-10m of deep diaphragmatic breathing. This will activate parasympathetic response, slow heartrate & breathing, calm the mind, relieve you of symptoms. You can reorient your attention. But only YOU can do the work.

Love 1
24 Feb 2018 ·

Your mind is causing mischief. Trust your body to bring you back to rest. Stay w/sensations, let go of story lines and keep letting go. Trust your own Inner Wisdom, no one elses- not even this. It'll guide you to true safety, peace & rest.

Lieteke, I guess I'm mostly just stressing out because I'm already behind on my courses. I messed up a lot in my first year and had to withdraw from a bunch or courses so I need to pass all my classes and go to summer school to graduate on time(cont)

(cont) I guess I also don't want to disappoint my parents they work hard to pay for my education and I feel like I've troubled them enough with my OCD and depression. Can't get extensions unless you have a medical report and they don't give those out

Love, I've been trying breathing excersises and while they help, they don't eliminate the anxiety. I got a hold of myself though, I forced myself to get up and cook and be busy and it left me eventually (lol 2 hours). But thank you so much!

Correct. Doesnt eliminate anxiety, but mitigates symptoms & can help avert panic attacks. For anxiety, there R other strategies. Forcing yourself to reorient your attention is one. Even tho it took time, knowing you have a strategy is empowering

Hey Kiara, my psych when i am at the height of my anxiety, tells me to focus on something else that will disract the mind. Such as reading a good book, going for a walk/ run, spending time with a pet (if you have that option)

Wendy J

Continued.. She even suggested putting your face in a bowl of cold water as it shocks your brain out of the repeatitive thinking. Then when you are feeling stronger go back and writing down exactly what is creating your anxiety.
