I can imagine this is hurting you and I hope it gets better. Take it one day at a time because you will manage one way or another.
Glad to see you back, Mandy. Was wondering where you'd got to. You must be feeling in the pits right now, is there anyone you can talk to, and/or any meds to take the edge off? Big hugs x
I'm so sorry, Twinny. I know how hard those crashes can be. It's rough. But you'll make it through. I pinkie promise. xx
Try to take one task at a time. Worrying about it all or trying to do too many things at the same time won't get you anywhere, so no point in that. All you can do is relax, breathe and put your focus on the FIRST thing, leave the rest for later.
Aww that's so sweet x
Sounds crappy, really sorry about that Mandy O. I've just taken a bunch of adderall to study for a test so no sleep here either!
Hmm I have the same problem. Have you been to the dentist?
Anxiety causes me to grind or clench my jaw too...I can always notice it when my neck and shoulders hurt... :(
It does the same for me which is why I was originally prescribed Klonopin.
My X had this. Her dentist suggested a mouth guard, which she wore nightly.
Thanks guys; for the advice and sharing your experiences.. I know I should but I rarely visit my dentist - I'm not afraid I just don't do things I should :/ the last visit I got asked if I was under any stress.. I said no (lie) and wondered why
She was asking - now I realise it must because there were signs of teeth grinding. I've only noticed I do this recently especially after I got took off cetalopram meds because my jaw went that stiff lol since then I'm aware when Im clenching my jaw
I will ask about a mouth guard Love1 :) as one of my back teeth has been breaking away slowly but surely! X
I have a mouthgard as well. It helps me from grinding but not always for clenching my teeth..
Also just realised I've blew 800 pounds last week that I had in the bank and owe money out when I get paid tomorrow - wow it's like I was out of control :/
sounds tough, big hugs!! I hope everything will be in order soon :)
Thank you Elizabeth M :)
I know all these feelings. It can feel like a big mess. You'll get it straightened out though, Twinny. I know you will. xx
Thanks everyone and tomorrow I'm going to start straightening everything up manda - the more I put it off n try to ignore it the more It's bothering me - so much to do which is overwhelming but I'm going to do it a bit at a time! X
Proud of you, Twinny! xx
just watch the weather and know that your mind is just like that. it is a product of nature-ever changing, clouds come and go like emotions, weather fronts move in and stay for a few days like moods, but ever changing.
sounds like a good day.
Thank you everyone and yes Love1 much calmer and feel in control of my thoughts and feelings - accepting how I feel and really telling myself over and over every feeling is a part of me, a part of who I am - feelings pass peacefully when I accept :)
yes. it feels different saying I am sad, anxious, angry, etc. versus saying a part of me is sad, anxious, or angry. because there is also awareness,there maybe a part that is concerned, etc.
accepting, acknowledging, respecting all parts, especially the exiled and rejected parts helps us integrate all of who we are.
