Stress-You Ugly Beast

Stress… you’ve shown your ugly face again and again; to be honest I am quite sick of you. I am trying to find a way to beat it, to not feel like every breath is a struggle.  To not feel like my heart is going to explode. My blood pressure is higher with every doctors appointment. I cannot stand the look I get, I do not have a blood pressue issue, I have anxiety that is trying to destroy me and everytime I have to explain. I would love to not feel like my stomach is going to eventually just eat itself and everything I do eat just makes me feel sick.  To not feel this way would be my greatest blessing right now. I have to find a way to win here.  The only calming source I have found is spa music. Even that is not always doing the trick.  I am trying and I am fighting, I just feel so lost.
I have so many positives in my life.  It is so frustrating to feel this way when there are so many things to look forward to!
It’s going to be okay, today is just not my day. We all have them, I just need to find my footing here. Feel free to share what works for you!

  1. I can definitely relate to this– at times I feel as though I am being completely consumed by my stress and anxiety and it is terrifying. This process is so wearing, and the fact that it is always on your mind really doesn’t make it any easier. The other week I found that it helped when I asked myself, “what makes you happy?” and started doing those things, some of which I had stopped because of our current situation. It was like I had to remind myself how to do something just for fun. Even if it doesn’t feel possible to do what makes you happy, try to find a way. It’s so important to take care of yourself during this time. I know that can be hard to do and I am still learning how, but taking baby steps toward change has helped overtime. Plus, now I can make shopping trips a “necessity” ;). And my husband is okay with it because he decided he is going to play more golf, which is something that makes him happy. Anyway, I didn’t mean for this to get so long, but I really hope that you are able to find a way to ease the stress you’re experiencing. ❤

    • Thank you for sharing and for the support! I will have to find more of what makes me happy to get through this! I think it is a good idea to ask yourself, especially in the moment, it may really help to get myself centered! I love the idea about shopping, haha! Wishing you the very best!
