Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

Hey @mspaceK 

 

Hope you're doing okay at work Heart It's so hard to do life when you don't feel like you're coping. Takes a lot of strength to get out of bed and push through Heart 

 

I totally get what you mean when you say you don't need to vent. At times anxiety is a very physical experience (rather than a emotional/cognitive one). It was really good that you went to do some breathing exercises. It took me awhile to find one that works for me - which exercise do you do?  

 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

Breathe in 4 breathe out 4 @Bre-RO . An hour and a half still to go at work :/ 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

It's great that you use that one @mspaceK. Do you hold the breath before exhaling? 

What I found really helps is doing it like this.. 

 

1. Breathe in for 4 seconds

2. Hold your breath for 3 seconds. Feel the pressure of your diaphragm in the pit of your stomach. 

3. Breathe out for 4 seconds. 

 

Here are also some gifs that can help if you're finding it hard concentrating on the counting of breaths.

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

Thanks for the gifs @Bre-RO . I'm finally finished. 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

No worries @mspaceK 

 

I'm really proud of you for getting through the day Heart I hope you can do something nice for yourself tonight. 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

I don't want to get better any more. I just want to disappear Smiley Sad @Bre-RO 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

Aw @mspaceK I can sense how tired you are of dealing with anxiety. It is an exhausting experience and can make you feel like you want to disappear. I just want to make sure you're safe though? 

Re: Sadness over relationship with my parents

I'm safe @Bre-RO . Smiley Sad meeting some people at the shops for a work thing soon. Just sitting in my car. :/ I'm so tired.
