Third Times The Charm

Hi guys,
im going to tell me story in here and keep a journal to get me thoughts and frustations, success and failures down in writing so i can help myself and if anyone reads it and get some ideas / help from it then all the better. Will update as often as i can, feeling a wee bit weak mentally and physcially at the mo. So will update in small bites.

best k

Re: Third Times The Charm

Hi guys,
Starting to calm down now, what a day, panic all day, the tablets felt mega strong etc. so very chemically. Can only put it down to me being anxious which is upsetting my digestion which is giving me the strong chemical taste. Off for a hot bath soon. And to listen to some relaxing cds etc and do my DMR.

This is the weird thing, and its happend to me so many times. I know its not possible but it does keep happening. I seem to suffer from 1 week later delayed panic/anxiety i should have had last week.

For example, last saturday i was at the family party and i felt great. This saturday i seem to have gotten all the panic/anxiety that i didnt get at the family party. Social events do normally make me tense and anxious.

Dont know how many times ive said to myself, lucky i wasnt like that last week etc. Its like week delayed anxiety, or the anxiety/panic catching up with me, almost like what happens when you taper too fast.

I know its a weird one but does anyone out there get delayed event anxiety.

It has happend so many times and it always seem to be a week later.

will put my story down here soon.
best k

Re: Third Times The Charm

Hi Kevin, good idea to keep a journal....

Interesting point about the delayed anxiety...at first when I read this I thought 'no- anxiety doesn't work like that' and thought any later anxiety came because you expected it...to the thoughts were were there...and we know how powerful our thoughts can be...then I thought twice about some of my experiences, particularly one in May this year.

We held a fundraising event at our store and leading up to it while I was at normal levels of nervousness about it going well I was mostly ok and if anything high functioning..the day came and I was anxious but did it (with valium) and yes it was hard. Literally the next day I fell apart- really, really badly and my cns went in overdrive- to levels I have never experienced in my life. To the point the option felt like kill myself or check into a psych ward. We'd also just taken on a guide-dog puppy which was causing me enourmous stress- the responsibility I think.

Anyway - so perhaps that's not the best example- but yes it happens to me a lot- it's like our body gets us through what we need to survive the event/outing etc and then when we are safe and out of 'danger' again it reacts. I remember when I used to work full-time in my own business, or even just have very full days with social things or errands/appointments...if I was going at too fast a pace then my body would protest in the form of panic attacks or (for me) worse, anxiety states that would last up to 12-24 hours - and always after the stressful trigger. I'm also the kind of person that is great in an emergency-but then falls apart afterwards.

Nowdays I'm accept the fact I am simply a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) who gets over-stimulated very easily (have always been like this but ignored it) and pace my days out to minimise too much stress on my cns.

Then we reach the point of finding the balance of looking after ourselves and avoidance of life. Sigh.

We'll get there!

Re: Third Times The Charm

Hey honeysuckle,
yeah i know what u are saying, i also believe that if there ever was a crisis. i would react great then fall apart after the crisis was averted. So maybe my body and mind just do that.. and then fall apart later.

Yeah think im just a HSP too, and yeah getting the balance right is hard. I want to avoid most of tuesday cause its my birthday but my sisters will want to see me and i got to a mediation class on a tuesday as well. They are keen for me to go too and see them. Heres hoping for a delayed reaction tuesday lol. Guess im just paying my stresses forward to myself.

Re: Third Times The Charm

I also thought that anxiety doesnt work like that, but then remebered some past events in my life. When i have dealt with some scary stuff ( via adrenhalin i think) then a few days later crashed and felt quite ill.
Like my daughter taking some pills on a night out. I did all the hospital stuff and visited her till she was allowed out 2 days later...then it hit me. So you may have a point. Who know how all this mess works.
Im too tired and past the point of trying analyse this horror show!!
Just keep putting one foot in front of another..thats all we can do!!

Obviously back then my CNS didnt fire off like a firework show, but i suppose that was anxiety.

Re: Third Times The Charm

nearly 3pm.
and still not out of bed yet. Just so dam tired, thats one thing about being in a panic/anxiety state all day it does tire you out.
not really looking forward to getting the day started, but i am aware that i could have a good day. im sure like many of u guys out there, uve got up feeling great and had an awful day and got up feeling awful and had good day.

need to eat and need to talk to my sisters about my upcoming birthday. Thankfully its not a major birthday and can probably get away with doing nothing. had to go out in 2009 to a family meal cause it was my 40th and i was much better then that i am now. Just cant face company at the moment.

Also need to try and get my younger sister to understand more about all this. She has suffered Minor anxiety problems herself and seems to think thats what im going through and that if i "pull myself together" etc ill be fine. Like Most docotrs she cant seem to understand its the w/d and reinstatement thats causing 90% of the problems..

if anyone has got a good link or two i could give her to read be very helpful.

off to eat as much as i can and take the tablets.

best k

Re: Third Times The Charm

Hey guys,
having it tuff again, dose still feels strong, not as strong as last few days but still strong. Not much of an appetite and not a lot of energy to do anything. Was feeling super tired there and now spaced Like im mildy tripping. Very Unpleasant.
Anxiety state and panic pretty bad, weird headache and head tingling and an internal trembly feeling.
On a positive not, feeling like this makes me want to take less of the stuff, instead of more.
Which is a huge change over the past 3 weeks, where all i wanted to do was take more.

best k

Re: Third Times The Charm

Thinking of changing my journal name to "no mans land" kinda where i feel stuck.
here we are on monday. Had a decent sleep, glad the insomnia has settled down, still waking up early full of anxiety, my hands burning. Managing to relax abit and drift off, although it doesnt feel like sleep. But still better. The tablets still feel strong after taking them, about 2hrs after taking them i notice mood changes, then about an hr after that extreme fatigue and indigestion. which takes a few hrs to pass, its almost like the feeling you get after u have took a valium. My spine feels sore at the base etc.

Still troubled by internal trembling and lack of appetite.
had a nice afternoon visit to my younger sister. Nice to catch up with her and the kids. Even though she hasnt a clue the pain w/d causes she is very supportive but still believes its all down to me etc. Got some nice birthday presents too. Just off out to my big sisters to see them for a wee while and pick up some presents.. Praying for a good monday evening, good sleep and a cracking birthday tuesday.

best kevin

Re: Third Times The Charm

Just back in from my big sisters,
with more presents :-)
felt sick whole time i was there, lot of acid indigestion and nausea.
Was gonna leave earlier than i would have but stuck it out.
Just off for a nice walk. Hopefully calm my indigestion and make me relaxed and hungry.
i so wish mental health healing was linear, why oh why is it cyclic :<

Re: Third Times The Charm

hey jo,
its normally an hr or so after i begin to wind down. My emotions were all over the place on the walk. I was wanting to updose again, find it actually funny how all over the place my thoughts are. Its just anxiety and its coming out in all manner of negative thought patterns.. Give me and hour and ill be saying the tablets feel too strong again. Think i might have a problem with milk, had a bowl of cereal before i went out and was anxious, i have noticed this correlation in the past. It does seem to effect my mood tbh and i normally do avoid it. but im trying to eat more and fancied a bowl of coco pops to cheer myself up..

Heres to mellowing out in a bit. Still got my hot bath and DMR cd to do also.

Think im also getting a bit anxious about having a crap tuesday when its my birthday. No clue but its definetly in the mix.

thoughts were running like "im not going to sleep and have a crap birthday" that type of thing. Just need to ignore the little devils and challenge them.
I know im just fragile at the mo.

best k

Re: Third Times The Charm

Yep. its like i said on another post. anxiety is always there and if you take away something that makes you anxious the little sod will find another host..another thing to attach itself to.!
So your trying to relax and its using your birthday against you. Tell yourself it really doesnt matter to you if your birthday isnt all that good. Then it will look for yet another host!!
Milk makes me anxious and bloats me like a balloon. Im ok to have it in tea, but i cant have cereals any more.
Glad your walk helps.x

Re: Third Times The Charm

Oh GOD . youre so like me!!.
I used to live on cereals. I just hate cooking for one. Im constantly being told that wd will be better if i would just eat better.!!! But i just dont like cooking and especially now... i just want to spoil myself all the time and cooking isnt my idea of fun.
Its ok when theres someone to eat with.... eating alone is SAD!

Re: Third Times The Charm

Two words: Almond milk! No stomach upset and in cereal you honestly can't tell the difference. I don't particularly like it by itself, however CHOCOLATE almond milk is delicious on it's own.

Re: Third Times The Charm

It's worth noting that GI issues in w/d are common also. It may not all be anxiety. They say that 90% of serotonin receptors are in the gut.
