Re: Learning to swim when the surf's up

@j95 It sounds like things are really terrifying right now. I reckon extreme anxiety can actually feel so scary like you might just lose your mind. Ask yourself (see if you can find an answer) "what do I need the most this second?" Let us know how you're going and think about what you might need??

Re: Learning to swim when the surf's up

@j95 it's the worst when that feeling creeps up out of nowhere. If nothing else - I want to remind you that you are actually safe - (unless there's something bad happening that I'm not aware of!). That's kind of what anxiety does though. it's a trickster that makes us believe that there's life threatening danger or something dreadfully wrong happening and it's a load of ....dung because its' not true. This is just the perfect thread for you right now....I was honestly thinking that even just watching your breath is actually enough but I'm glad you came up with that yourself! This WILL pass I would put money on it ...(and then be very rich)

Re: Learning to swim when the surf's up

Terrifying thoughts @j95 so I can fully appreciate that those worries would trigger fear. All I'll say for now is - do your best not to follow those thoughts now(yes can be easier said than done). Try and watch your breath as you suggested...See how you go for tonight - minute by minute is need be!
