Anyone struggle with social anxiety?

Was a good day today I helped out with something for a community event, putting posters around about a mental health support to raise awareness for people that need it in my town/city. But a bit of social anxiety having to interact and ask reception etc about being able to put it up. Etc I’m lucky I’m half extroverted half introverted but some situations still make my social anxiety :/ a little high. #SocialAnxiety #Anxiety #panic #worry #Silly #DoingMyBest

I find myself obsessively observing my racing thoughts 💭 going to try to empty my mind a bit more and notice less for peacefulness

It’s hard been having a lot of anxious racing thoughts to more of an extreme lately I will try doing the worry timer exercise I’ve never tried before and noticing or talking in my mind a little less

It’s good to be self aware of your thoughts but I find lately I’m doing it to an extreme where I can’t stop them

And I’m not very active either
And very bad bedtime routine/ sleep schedules / diet etc

So I hope that adjusting some things will help my anxiousness and mental health right now.

Wish me luck! Thank you 🙏
Have a great day everyone sending positive vibes prayers of hope and love to everyone going through a tough time or needing that extra reminder :)

Doing My Best… And I need Help but I’m not sure How

Has anyone tried inpatient mental health treatment? Was it a good experience? Bad? Would you recommend? (I’m in the United States)
I’m struggling with depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. I’m currently safe, but I don’t feel like I have as good a handle on it as I usually do. And I’ve tried many medications and don’t respond to any of them.
I have mast cell activation syndrome and am basically allergic to everything right now. I can’t touch my kitty or my dog or even my husband. It’s been about a year of hell. I can’t remember the last time I hugged my husband or had significant touch and I think that’s the major reason I’m in this state. I only got the mast cell diagnosis about a month or so ago. I’m doing my best, and my husband is too, but it’s been hell. #MastCellActivationDisorder #Autism #Depression #Anxiety #PanicAttacks #LymeDisease #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #SuicidalThoughts #DoingMyBest

Does anyone else struggle with anxiety and lying ?

White lies or major lies? To avoid confrontation, or so on I don’t typically but sometimes I do and want to work on it, just wanted to know if anyone else struggles with this and anxiety.

Help with work anxiety

:) I am at a new job and usually struggle to find or keep employment, so far everyone is nice and the training is better than at other places, but guess don’t want to feel alone in my struggles hiding my mental health at the workplace, maybe eventually I can reach out for help if they are accommodating, they offer some mental health supports partnerships so I’m incredibly lucky. Thanks for any tips and sharing your own story or struggles with work anxiety.

😊🙂🙂💕🙏 💼

Overwhelmed, Exhausted, and Stressed Out of my Mind!

I'm in NYC and things are scary here.

My recent grocery delivery might have brought COVID19 onto surfaces in my kitchen and I am at higher risk. I may already have exposed myself before I found out and I keep cross-contaminating surfaces and items in my home.

I was already out of disinfectant and I keep putting off the HUGE project of trying to get some more because I've had an insanely stressful week working (most of it unpaid because that part is necessary for the paid work, and I'm desperate to do well and hang onto any paid opportunities I have because I need the income so badly and quickly).

But I keep cross-contaminating items and by tomorrow I will not even be able to safely prepare food in my kitchen, and I don't have very much prepared to eat and I'm not supposed to eat prepared delivery food right now.

I tell myself to not be so cautious but the stories coming from my people in the medical community are absolutely beyond heartbreaking and I can't imagine dying that way, never seeing or speaking to my loved ones again, and I know I'm at higher risk, so I feel I HAVE to be cautious because it's just not worth it taking ANY risk.

But now I've cross-contaminated the last of my kitchen things and I dont understand how I could prepare any food. I am exhausted and scared and still working at 10:30pm after 14 straight hours of mostly unpaid work and I'm so stressed out and upset and overwhelmed I could just cry. My anxiety and stress are through the roof.

Oh and in the meantime I'm trying to be a good partner to the love of my life who lives in a different city, and he is so compassionate and loving and caring and is struggling himself at times, but I have been overwhelmed for weeks and sometimes I just want to set that aside and be present with him but I feel so stressed out that it's difficult.

And I'm doing my best to offer genuine care to the communities and people who turn to me for that, and to stay positive and awesomely good at my job for the people I work with because I desperately need the work.

There is no time to rest, not even this weekend, and there wasn't last weekend either. Everything is an emergency and a project and exhausting. The week I have coming up is going to be even harder, especially if my brain isn't getting food.

And always in the back of my mind knowing I may have already been exposed and have to wait extra long to see if symptoms develop not only from the initial possible exposure but from secondary exposure in my home.

Please reach out and/or say a prayer for me; I'm having a really rough time right now and could really use encouagement and support.

Thank you, beautiful Mighties! I pray you are all safe .
