    Anxiety is making me feel so LOST, so now I'm ranting about it!

    I'm fairly new to this website, but I figured if anyone could help or relate to me, it would be this page! I'm a mom of three, who has probably suffered with mental illness my whole life (just unaware of it, but I've learned so much, and continue to learn as well) and my children are my life, and even though I've made mistakes in the past I've learned that I'm not the same person I once was, because I lacked the knowledge that I now have. My problem now is, that I just feel lost! I'm sure it's the anxiety that keeps me feeling unsure, and having no clue what to do with my life! The more I try to figure it all out, the more I just feel confused and stuck! More than anything in the world, I just want to have a career (that gives me purpose) that not only financially supports us, but makes my kids proud of me! I let them down so many times by not being able to stick with a job, and I just want to feel normal, confident, ambitious, and clear minded. Lord please just tell me the steps I need to take to be able to do all of this, I've pleaded so many times, and maybe one day I'll get my answer lol! The ironic part is that I'm always so good at helping others, but can't seem to ever be able to mentally do it for myself! #Healing #anxietysucks

    It Begins With Your First Breath.

    So, anxiety caused by fear of death is a thing. AWESOME! Because who wouldn't want to be told they're a scaredy cat that's also probably depressed, with panic disorder, AT LEAST? 🙋‍♀️Also probably working on agoraphobia, avoidance of social situations, and just earned yourself a helluva lot of homework ... let's learn all the therapies: acceptance therapy, CBT, mindfulness anyone?
    Here's a link for people dealing with yet another something complicated. It gives some direction on how to approach this type of anxiety and references a few books as well. #moreproblemsthanamath55prof #anxietysucks
