Glad you're feeling better
I know what you mean. Sometimes it feels like guilt is the foundation of my being. We should try and be nicer to ourselves, though. Btw, are you Russian, too?
Alicia, yeah, I am Russian. Are you Russian as well? I see there are many of us here )
I understand the guilt, but, it's not your fault at all
Yes, I am :)
Kym, thank you!
Alicia, do you live in Russia? where exactly?
I'm from Moscow, but I live in Germany now. How about you?
I'm from Kineshma, it's a small town in Ivanovo region, but I live in Moscow currently. How did you figure out I was Russian?
have fever. I'm on antibiotics, but I feel like they are not helping much. I feel so tired of being sick! I've been sick for over a month already!
I hope you get well soon!
Glad you got somewhere to have it taken care of. I hope you feel better soon!
Hope you finally feel better soon.
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
