Re: Feeling Good

That's really nice to hear. I've seen your posts before Stormsky and I find it very inspiring that you manage without medication.

Re: Feeling Good

Great news Stormsky.....you are an inspiration to many of us here so much of what you say makes sense, it's just so difficult at times to change your thought patterns. Am trying to be more like you and I agree about the vit B, been taking it for a while now. Just got to put all the other stuff into practice lol. I hope you stay and continue to help and inspire others, and wish you continued success in your recovery.

Hi,
I take Jarrows B Right, i take one every other day, as they are quite high strengh... i only have about 3 cups of tea a day, then just water, at least 5 glasses... ( i think they say 8 but i cant drink that much!) i add flaxseed to my food,as i read its really good for you... eat fruit, fish, chicken...not processed meat or processed foods, as they have too many preservatives... fresh cook food when i can... Ive been sitting in the sun alot lately, which has given me a boost too i think! (vit D is the feel good vit we get from the sun). which is why everyone generally is happier in summer months!
The biggest think mentally for me, is ive been letting things go, obsessive thoughts id usually keep going over and over etc, its been getting easier to let go, do the more i do it... i dont spend alot of time 'checking in' (as in keep asking yourself how you are feeling)... i read you have to try to stop that and eventually you naturally wont do it as much.... i try to live as if i dont have the condition... and ive been keeping busy and living in the real world more!! less time in my head!! all the little steps like this add up to improving...

thanks kitti.xxx
it is difficult to change thought patterns, but you can do it....
i used to be bad at overthinking everything, everything people said to me, thoughts that popped in my head, questioning, trying to remember things that had no importance... so i decided to let them go... to start with i did it by saying, 'there'll be something else to obsess about later so im going to let this one go, then later when something else came up, id do the same... now i find it easy to just let thoughts go... the more i do it infact, the less they come anyway....

Re: Feeling Good

Forgot to mention exercise too is key to feeling good ! just walking is good... I use my Wii Fit , and walk my dogs, and got a treadmill too.

Re: Feeling Good

Really good to read Stormsky, particularly when you've done it all by yourself without medication - well done!! I'd also second your comments about exercise being key to good mental health.

Re: Feeling Good

That's great to hear Stormsky!
Recently I read something that asked "What have you done to aid your recovery?" And I realized that I really haven't been doing as much as I thought I'd been. I haven't made good changes in my diet, my exercise regime lately sucks & I have not been positive enough. I've literally just sat around distracting myself in TV and food and not dealing with my issues. Gah, anyways, it's time to change that.
This is really motivating and inspiring!
Glad to hear you are doing good.
Monika

Re: Feeling Good

Hi Stormsky, just want to add my congratulations that you are doing well, you were the first to reply to both of my threads and your kind words helped immensely. You may not realise how inspirational it is to hear fellow sufferers are doing well, I love the attitude you have towards anxiety and hope I can instill this to.
Keep strong.
