Still tension at home so I'm anxious, but hopefully it will resolve soon.

Spent most of the day with my parents so was mostly distracted. Trying to keep busy with chores but even some of those make me anxious.

Even though they are wonderful people, I'm super anxious about my guests coming. Social anxiety and general anxiety and anxious about being a good hostess. Hopefully that will be eased soon enough. Hopefully I can get some reassurance rather than get depressed again. I think I'm anxious about breaking down in front of them. *sigh*

Went for psychological testing today. Had a breakdown in the doctor office during the test and started crying. Still a little anxious about stomach pains.

Needing to know the difference between PTSD & Trauma? Are they not related? I started EMDR today using my 5-senses. I'm not sure how learning coping skills will give me relief from anxiety/panic attacks but basically my brain interprets stress as a threat...fight/flight mode. Whenever I get those signals of being threatened, I am to go to that happy place and allow whatever thoughts come to my mind go through and then focus back to my place of happiness. Does this really work? It is so easy for my husband to tell me just up my anxiety meds!

Trauma is an event or events. PTSD is a reaction to that event, or memories of that event or events.

-----------

Been a quiet day, but I got a lot done. Got an appointment tomorrow with pnurse for the side effects. Got my CPAP supplies ordered. Bought some stuff to make iced espresso and black tea lemonade at home. Moved canned goods out of the garage (where it's blazing hot) to the kitchen. Helped husband set up the old portable AC unit to test run it before we put it upstairs in daughter's bedroom. Hopefully it will cool upstairs a bit.

Nervous about specialist appointment on Thursday. Nervous about pnurse appointment too. Just a big bundle of nerves at this point.

Smile Re: Anxiety Daily Check-In point #5

Have been coping with a virus for over a week now. The symptoms were mild at first, but disorienting. I was able to walk almost two miles to the store and back yesterday, but really needed to rest afterward.

Also had a grest conversation with my dad yesterday. I told him about my goal of becoming a counselor and working with environmental restortion. Baby steps for now, but he sounded enthusiastic and supportive.

Today I am having doubts about my ability to attain said goals, and questioning my motives for wanting to.

Was able to get some tasks done and enjoy outside time with my kids. I didn't gag and throw up when taking the rotten broccoli out of the fridge (yay!).

Thank you all for sharing. And thank you if you read this post.

Today is the day our first guests arrive. Still have some things to prepare. At the moment though anxiety is down. Got ahead of most things, so thats good. But we will see as the day progresses. I'll either wear down or energize up. Hopefully the latter, but not too much because I need to sleep tonight.

Anxiety is better today. Went to class in the afternoon. Still ruminating a lot and getting ill (some silly virus or something else infectious, nothing serious).

Was switched from Lautda to Trileptal. No anti-psychotic. This will be interesting because the APs helped keep my anxiety down. I will see if the non-med changes and coping skills will help.

Still nervous about ENT Thursday, but pnurse said even if I had surgery I wouldn't notice the pain that much. She doesn't know about my low pain threshold and requirement of high doses of NSAIDs to get through said pain.

Hoo boy. I'm just glad my list of duties for today is done.
