    Re: Relapse! Coping, Symptoms and Tips.

    Sue, I think you did manage it well and correctly and I will explain why.
    You stayed there. (you might have made an excuse to leave. Not feeling well, getting over a virus etc)
    You could have spent long periods in the bathroom, playing for time.
    You stuck it out. Ok you might have been going over what happened and why, but that's better than running away,because you are actually running away from yourself.

    Wouldn't it be lovely if you could actually run away from yourself? Or leave yourself at home when you have to go to these social events!

    Does anyone really look forward to and enjoy family gatherings anyway? Maybe your sister was talking endlessly to cover up her own anxiety, Sue?

    I don't think you should overanalyse what happened. The fact is that you dealt with your "wobble" and carried on regardless. It doesn't matter how you achieved this..you did it. It will happen again and you will cope with it again-that's success. You don't have to do it by the book -just by what works for you. And I agree with Carnation, even people without an anxiety disorder would have found your recent trip challenging so give yourself huge credit for what you have achieved xx

    'wobble', I like that description Pulisa, it sounds less scary.
    And let's face it, we are all allowed to have the occasional wobble.
    Nice to see you back posting Pulisa.

    My life is a series of wobbles but so long as I am still standing at the end of each day that's ok! I'm sure the published "experts" would disagree with this but we all do our best whatever the circumstances and I'm sure even the experts have their off days and have days when they aren't able to follow their own advice because they are only human after all.

    Maybe try not to see it as a battle and more as a series of challenges, Sue? It's all about managing day to day life and I reckon you are doing pretty well on that score!

    Well, it looks as though I have picked up that pesky virus. :( treatment for that? Plenty of fluids and lots of rest. Huh, that's a good one. Women never get any rest. It's not what you need when you are preparing for moving, but it is probably the reason I got attacked by the virus in the first place. :(
    My lovely next door neighbour brought me a box of chocolates, which unfortunately I can't eat at the moment because of a bad episode of acid reflux, but they will get eaten when my stomach settles.
    I had a smidgen more energy today which is a good sign, but my throat feels like it's housing several razors. :(
    Mr C is also not himself, so we went out to stock on supplies just in case.
    Two properties to view tomorrow and I'm not sure if I am excited or just going through the motions, but I'm hoping for that wow moment.
    Surprisingly my anxiety is very calm at the moment, I hope it's not building up to a massive crescendo.

    Tell yourself you are excited then if any symptoms show up you can chalk them up to excitement. I hope you get the wow factor, something you know instantly could be your home. I think the moment you walk in somewhere, you know.

    Trouble with me, if I found somewhere I knew was 'home' I would spend weeks thinking it was all going to fall through. Bloody negative thinking but looking from a fatalist point of view, if it doesn't happen, it was never meant to happen. Whatever is going to be yours is already moving towards you, right now, this very second. I read that somewhere and I quite liked it.
