I feel like I just read a post about myself. I've had the same pain feelings in my neck/legs/back and chest for the last 6 months and I've been
thinking too much of whats going on in the world today. But I've always had bad anxiety ever since I can remember.
I've been through allot in my years as well, but I have left leave the past in the past an made peace with how things have gone and also that some
day I will undoubtedly meet my fate.
I refuse to get any medication though, I want to deal with this on my own even though its been a good 10 years since I've set foot in my doctors. On
with the rest of my post:
Let me tell you that, you, like myself, are one of the few that carry the weight of the world on your shoulders.
Every day when you get out of bed, tell yourself that you can handle whatever is thrown at you, you've made it this far in life, after all. Don't
worry about tomorrow, tomorrow will bring its own worries.
The anxiety will wear your mind and body down from trying to contemplate every thing, to the point that your mind/existence seems to hollow out your
body and go to a numb oblivion.
One step at a time. pick up a hobby or two, workout regularly and keep to it; have self discipline, but don't forget to treat yourself when you need
it. If you feel you're starting to build back to the anxiety, do some research, learn something new, find new interests, and most importantly: try to
be a good person and help others when you can.
Believe me, helping others is the best way to help yourself. Focusing to much on your own problems will cause you allot of anxiety.
Remember though, one step at a time. There are alot of good things in the world and alot of bad, try to look for the good in add in your own and maybe
others will learn a little in the process.
