disease, if only I didn't need as much rest or had more energy, what could I have achieved?
Try a martial art, it'll give you confidence without too much exercise, usually it's more gentle and efficient than you'd imagine.
John T, this sounds like a fantastic idea! I should definitely think about it
Try deep breathing. I found yog classes really good to help me learn breathing techniques. It's amazing the difference it makes. At one point hearing my heart racing made me feel even more anxious. A thought I used to calm me down a bit was that your
heartbeat is just a reminder that you are alive and well. . . That only applies if hearing it freaks you out even more! But maybe that will help a bit! x
I get that quite a lot too. Sometimes it's good to just distract yourself if something is making you anxious. I've also found online guided meditation to be relaxing
^^^^ I agree with Janine! Online guided meditation can be very helpful! I used to do the guided meditations by The Honest Guys on Youtube a lot. They have lots. I used to like Summer Meadow and this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S92hR3YgblU
Most of the ones I use are by Jason Stephenson. I mainly use them for sleeping but I think he does others
Thank you, guys! I'm doing guided meditations with the Headspace app. Yeah, I did have that feeling of fear when I felt my heart beating like this. Although I think it was more of a side effect of the antibiotics, it felt like a constant panic attack
Just played a bit of one of his videos there now Janine! Think I may have listened to one before! His voice sounds relaxing anyways :)
Ivanova, I am glad it sounds like the worst has passed. That sounds horrible! xx
He does have a relaxing voice. 😄 I think he does different types of relaxing music too.
attack. My body was shaking all over, I couldn't sleep, my hand skin lost sensitivity, and my heart was nearly jumping out of my chest. Aftr two days of this hell I got the doctors to change my antibiotic, but now I'm curious whether these side
effects could have something to do with BPD (probably I have a highly excitable central nervous system). So, I have a question for those of you who have BPD: have you ever dealt with side effects like these when taking antibiotics?
Sorry, I can't help you because I don't have BPD. Last time I took anitibiotics, I felt exhausted, though, like I was carrying around a huge boulder. I'm Bipolar. What I mean to say is anitbiotics can have some weird side effects.
Thank you, Alicia! You've made me feel like I'm not the only one reacting unusually and I'm not just making this up
R u taking anything to help? Sending big hugs 🤗
Ade W, yeah, I'm taking antibiotics, this should help
Wow! That's great! I don't think any of my doctors ever tested for that even though I had heard of that! That's great they are looking into different avenues and tablets seem to be working :D
Enjoy your day! So happy you feel good today!
That's good! Glad you had the day off to recover!
Hope you feel better soon!
hope you get your laptop fixed?
Keeping Track A, yeah, I managed to make it work
that's great! How is your sister? x
I haven't called my family in a few days, but her profile page looks pretty depressive. Now she reposted a picture of a guy saying he wants to die but people don't let him do it
oh that's tough. I hope she improves xx
Why do you think that your chances of pursuing what you want are that low?
Ezra, because I have already failed a few times(
But you still alive. As long as you have life you can keep trying.
Thannk you Ezra! I appreciate your support
If u know ur triggers whether that be material items or even pictures get rid of them, I've done this and so far it's helps not to have the constant reminders around me
Ade, thank you for the piece of advice! Although for now my trigger is studying, because I'm very afraid of failing the upcoming exams, and as much as I want it, I can't avoid studying(
All u can do is ur best x
The pills she's been taking don't help her as much, and yesterday she published a ***e note online on her profile page in a social network. When I asked her about it, she told me she was feeling very low and needed to vent, but that was an actual
***e note... I feel terrible, I can't watch what pain she's going through, and I am constantly worried about her possibly deciding to take her life o_0 She's seeing a psychiatrist and a psychitherapistz, but they mot
most * likely don't know about it
oh gosh. That's so hard to deal with. Let her know how much you love her and care for her. The more supported she feels the better. Her note on social media was a call for help, so she doesn't really want to go through with it deep down.
Keep showing your love and support. I hope therapy and psychiatry work for her.
Your love and support will go a long way. May she find peace.
Thank you guys for your supporting words! I place my hopes on the new meds she's been prescribed lately.
I will definitely try to show her even more support... I see that she needs it now. Although sometimes I find it so difficult to choose the correct words for a person in such a situation and not to make it worse, even though I've been there, too
