  1. Morning Brandy. Hope this is one of those weekends you feel super duper, relaxed and at ease with enjoyment. I too used too suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder actually some called it Agoraphobia and Panic disorder. Oh well its just a name. I am much better these days with just the odd day very odd where I am full of Anxiety. Just wanted to say you definitely are not alone. So So many are afraid to say anything or speak up.

    Have a Great Day and thanks for even a mention of this yucky disorder it helps others understand.

    Take care
    Kevin

  2. A lot of people say once you accept yourself you become stronger. I believe that, and have had trouble being around people for so long. On occasion, I just don’t want to be seen in the state I’m in. I always imagine that’s the day I see someone I know and have no success story to share or something. But I realize, I do. I just had to see all the positive things I have done and not get stuck on the negative, as well as realize it’s ok to let them know it isn’t a picnic and it will take more than a quick catch up at the super market to explain my life. If they don’t want to invest time in me at that point, they are the ones who should be embarrassed of themselves.

  3. I agree that writing is therapeutic. I think it’s pretty amazing that you can redirect your thoughts to bring you to a better place.

    1. It has taken me many years to be able to redirect my mind like this, many many years & some times I still struggle with redirection of my thoughts. Thanks for your comment.

  4. Good for you – you have found something that works for you (writing) and that is a giant leap in the right direction (or should I say Write direction) 😉

    You have so much to be grateful for and writing things down is sure to bring those thoughts to mind. Children are a great blessing. And, getting a break from those children is also a great blessing from time to time. Am I right?

    Keep up your great work on your blogs!

  5. This is acctually great advice, thank you for sharing that. I have suffered from depression, and anxiety since I was young. I’ve found way’s of dealing…but nothing that really takes away that feeling. I write…alot in journals, but its always about how im feeling, and negativity. Not so much about how I want to feel. I will have to try this!

  6. I’ve had anxiety and depression since I was only 9 years old. You’re right–it’s a rollercoaster with up days and down days, but I am learning to deal with them all. For a while I was doing really well, but now that I’m a mom and have a lot more time to sit around and think, I’m realizing that my own childhood was not all that pleasant, and it’s tough not to dwell sometimes. I’m thinking of starting a personal blog just for therapeutic reasons. It helps knowing there are a lot of other people who struggle with the same things.

  7. You are wise to reach out to others when you’re feeling down. Many people don’t realize how much the giver actually gets back through “volunteering.” Have a great week! 🙂
