View Full Version : BEST & WORST OF ANXIETY??!!

01-07-05, 23:45
Hi all :D,

I thought I would post a topic about some of the worst things and some of the best things about anxiety for me.

Now i can see your all suddenly thinking you mean there is a best thing!!!!!!![Duh!][?]

Well by doing this list GOOD [Yes!] VS BAD[No] I think it has come to help me with accepting it a little better. Which as you are all probably aware can be the hardest thing to do! [Sigh...]

So here goes. THE WORST THINGS about suffering anxiety and panic etc... are.

1) Claustrophobia - Never suffered before the anxiety. Now i get petrified about feeling trapped or not being able to get out of a situation.

2) Thoughts and symptoms - oh [Yes!] those horrible [}:)] irrational thoughts that make us feel like we are loosing the plot. [:P]Plus turning the mildest symptom into something so deadly[xx(] you wouldn't believe!

3) Fear of Fear - Beating yourself up mentally and being so scared out of your pants[:O] for no apparant reason really [Duh!]

4)Low self esteem hypersensitivity and worry has increased dramatically
so lots of reassurance is needed.

THE BEST THINGS![Wow!][Yeah!][Yes!]:D

No I haven't left this bit blank honest! LOL

1) Have made new friends who are compassionate understanding and share the same empathetic view.

2) I gave up smoking 3 years ago due to depression ( Now I'm depressed cause I don't smoke[Oops!]) No Joking aside giving up was the best thing for me honest![^]

3) I push myself to do more now where as before it all started. I just might not bother with something. [Sigh...]Now i try and make myself do it. I sometimes find i enjoy things I didn't think i would! [:O]

4)I think it makes you stop think and prioritise. You end up helping people more and not taking so much for granted at times.

5) Being a sufferer means you must pamper yourself lots;)[Yeah!] Very Important that one!!!!!!

6) You can spend your time congratualting yourself without feeling totally bonkers [:P] LOL

7) Realising that having enhanced emotions is a gift and it's how we use them that counts.

8) I found more best things then worst YIPEEEEEE! :D :D :D :D

Seriously though by reading this post I hope people can may be see that although it may seem impossible at times. You might be totally blinkered but sometimes something GOOD can come out of something BAD!

Please feel free to write down your thoughts of your Best & Worst.

I hope this helps.

Sorry for the long post and thanks for reading.[:I]

Take Good care all ;),

Loadsa Love & Wishes

I am pleased to see there were more positives and I think it is great that you can see something positive in all this cos sometimes we only ever look for the negative don't we?

Thanks for the post.

Thanks Nic for your reply hun,[8D]

Yes i can be a terrible pessimist at times. I sometimes have to give myself a good talking to esp when those irrational thoughts creep in!!!! That's when i find it useful to stop and practice the POSITIVE thinking.

Hope you are well mate,

Take care,
