I have had severe anxiety and a panic disorder ever since I was five years old. I have also had bouts of depression throughout my life. In the last year, depression has made my short term memory really bad. I can't remember people I've met, names I've learned, things I've seen or heard, and sometimes things I've written down. I started this blog to record things that have helped me with my anxiety, that I can keep coming back to, because I forget them when the time comes. (If you are anxious, maybe they can help you too.)
ON YOUR TABLE
On your table is a series about tangible things that have helped me deal with my (ongoing) anxiety.
Number 1 on the list of things I am good at: spiralling. This series is dedicated to exercises I've learned that have helped when I feel anxious.
Exercises for relaxation.
How to do things even when things are the last thing you want to do.
My self care is generally the first thing to fall apart when I'm anxious, but self care is not self indulgence.
ANGER AND ANXIETY
I've learned through therapy that a lot of my anxiety is caused to repressed anger, hurt and betrayal. This section is dedicated to exercises that deal with that. Coming soon.
