Hi, my name is catsmindset and I've been diagnosed with anxiety and panic attacks disorder. At the beginning all I wanted was to hide and disappear from the face of the earth without having to deal with 2 toddlers. No one ever talked to me or told me that anxiety is something that many people go through...that I'm not alone, that I'm not going crazy. I had to take medication to get back in my feet but over the years I have learned to keep it together. I need to keep occupied and fill my hours with stuff to do so that I don't fall back into the hole. I do yoga daily and exercise a lot as I feel this has saved me. I now have to support my college student daughter who seems to be going through the same and being able to talk to her and tell her that she's not alone in this world going through this is the best thing.
I saw this little exercise and thought it could be perfect for those of you dealing with anger. When it comes to things in our outer environment, there is often little we can do to change it. Fortunately, there is much we can do to change our inner environment, which is by far the most important. Even better is that I’m quite confident this exercise is universal and will work for anxiety, stress, sadness, and even physical pain management. Will you give it a try and let us all know how it goes?
Finally, I'm so grateful for all of you and would love to get to know you all better outside of The Mighty, so if you're on Instagram, feel free to reach out at:
~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~
Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

Hi, my name is coralbadger95470. I'm here because
Ihave dealt with dystonia since 1996. My Doctor has restricted my meds to a low dose. Others meds have quit working. I lost my brother this year so anxiety and depression has been bad. Here recently I have felt my heart not acting right and my blood pressure is high for me. Is there a factor between dystonia and blood pressure? I feel like I walk around in one big spasm every day. The Doctors are so afraid of addition to medication, yet have not experienced what we deal with. When does the quality of life play into this? I use to exercise but find it hard to continue when my muscles are screaming in pain and spasm. I felt better exercising. And desperately want to feel that way again. But I’m at a loss as to how to get there from here. I had done it once but I also had medication to help me through the rough spots. My Neurologist has frequently stated that she is able to distract me and my condition gets better. This makes me feel like she is calling me a liar. Sorry. Just need to unload. Feel lousy this morning. And all I can say is keep moving forward when all I want to do is go to bed#MightyTogether #Anxiety #Depression #Grief #Dystonia
