Today was the peak of my anxious December. Each day I have been getting more and more anxious, little things add up to become huge issues in my head.
A week ago I was nearly in tears because I was overwhelmed by anxiety. I often feel like I need to have a perfectly spotless house. When I’m tired or just want to relax, I sometimes ignore that and keep on cleaning. It becomes too much for me to handle so I crack.
Today I was experiencing a lot of anxiety that I don’t know where it was coming from. I was angry at everyone and everything for no reason. I could feel my muscles tense from the anxiety so I thought I would go to the gym to release it. Sadly it only helped a little bit. I walked back into my house and the stress fell back on to my shoulders.
Anxiety is the freaking worst. For me it is worrying about everything. Anxiety is stress piled up so high on my mind that I cannot see the top. It is being unable to act because I am frozen with anxiety.
On Monday I am calling my therapist to make an appointment. I need to hash out the worries and blockades in my brain that are holding me back.
How has your mental health been? If you struggle with anxiety, are you managing it ok?
