How do you combat #SocialAnxiety without feeling #EmotionallyExhausted

I’ve had social obligations related to family, friends and my sons school for nearly 2 months solid and I’m drained. What helps rejuvenate your emotional balance? #GeneralisedAnxietyDisorder #Emotionalexhaustion #SafeSpace

i feel like there’s so much going on right now that it’s overwhelming. I’m trying so hard to keep it together and keep going like everyone else. but right now, nothing sounds better than burying myself in soft and warm blankets and sweaters, drinking hot tea and snuggling with my pets. i can’t do that right now. there’s so much to do this week, but so little time, that is unless i decide to skip sleep and squeeze in more work hours. all i can do is my best, but i feel like even that won’t be enough or recognized. #Depression #Emotionalexhaustion #CheerMeOn #Cheermeup


Hard time

Well, I was in a really low mood yesterday and I was just really lost and tired. I ended up having a mental breakdown because my Mom was scolding my sister and I over a trival matter and she didn’t stop even when I told her to. I was hyperventilating so bad that my chest hurt and I couldn’t feel my limbs and face. I ended up being sent to the emergency room and had be to kept in observation for the entire night. They’ve sent me home in the morning but I’ve been feeling weak, numb and very on edge the entire day. I just don’t feel well and I don’t want to see my mom. I keep having suicidal thoughts but have people around me to keep me safe. Everyone’s been trying to make me feel better with flowers and gifts but I’m just so empty. I’m not sure when things will start picking up again..

Emotionally exhausted

I’ve come to realize in that past that no one will come and help me. I always do things on my own. I live in my apartment alone. Work related stress have increased and on the weekend I have tasks to do in order to prepare for the upcoming week such as meal prepping, cleaning my apartment and grocery shopping. Somehow I managed to squeeze in gym time to take care of myself because I have #DiabetesType2 But sometimes I get exhausted-physically and mentally. I feel like I just wanna say “Fuck it!” Why bother? With having #BPD and #ADHD I can’t sit still and relax. My brain goes 1,000 mph while my body slows down like a turtle because of exhaustion. Where do I draw the line? I couldn’t relax but when I do I can’t because there’s stuff to be done. #AnxietyDisorders #NeedSupport #Emotionalexhaustion
