Tips for shortness of breath/ noticing bodily symptoms less, fixated on breath.

I feel so dumb and stupid :( silly but I get this weird thing where I am constantly observing my breath and taking somewhat short breaths I breathe in deeply to try to regulate my breathing but it’s like I forget how to breath and it’s really ruining my days, I just want to go back to normal or be normal, I hate anxiety :( please help. 🙏 Anxiety is constantly being there and I want it to go away, I feel so alone and silly I can’t control this as well as I would like to or as I normally would, I also get this weird thing if I fixate on blinking it’s like I forget how to blink and instead of my body doing it automatically you become awkwardly aware of it and overdo it or under do it. I want to become less aware of these things and just let my body function normally, not ruminate or overthink and then feel too much. #Anxiety #hatethis #Silly #dumb #feelingdumb #pleasehelp #Annoying #shmptoms #body #Breathing #automatic #tooaware #Depression

Any tips for when it’s hard to sleep? Anxiety at bedtime?

I’m usually lucky 🍀 and sleep 😴 quite well but after a cold an hyper focus on my breathing 😮‍💨from a stuffy nose thankfully I’m over my cold now. But I still have that body protective thing I was doing where I was so focused on my breathing it’s a silly dumb anxiety thing but it’s like you forget to breathe and instead of doing it automatically you are doing it short ish sometimes focusing on the breath is said to calm you down in meditations spiritually but for me it’s the opposite. Any tips for getting to sleep, I’m trying to listen to calming music and affirmations but it’s not working as well as it usually would. I’m like half resting but conscious and if I sleep deeply like REM sleep it’s very little. Please help :( I feel so dumb and annoyed at myself. Sometimes even during the day I have that thing too like checking with myself with my breathing 😮‍💨 and it’s becoming an annoying new habit I just want to function normally and stop the silliness which I didn’t have this annoying thing until recently. It’s like yes my body is trying to protect me in its own way with anxiety but I don’t need this. #Anxiety #Breathing #dumb #Silly #Anxiety #shame #barriers #struggles #advice #themighty #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression #Support #help #Listener #Selfcompassion #feelingdumb #feelingsilly #Selfacceptance #confused #bodysymptoms #sensations #Hyperfocus #Meditation #tired #Insomnia

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

Does anyone else laugh at odd things?

I dont have a joke or anything but something cracked me up the other day and Im curious if Im the only person who gets tickled at things other people would just not find funny?

Mine was when a woman called the other day and it was on my landline so I could hear her from the other room leaving a message. I didn’t recognize her voice so I ignored it until my cell started ringing, then the landline again. Well I wasn’t in a great mood and when I looked at the list of calls on my cell I saw a name I didn’t recognize, Marion Fischer. I called the number so I could find our who the woman was, and ehen someone picked up I said “I dont know a Marion Fischer. Can you tell me what you are calling about? Well the woman said she had no idea why that name was coming up but she didn’t know a Marion Fischer, and got a little tickled. For some reason that set me off and I laughed. Then the two of us were laughing like crazy and I dont know why, but it killed me. Now anytime I think of that name I bust out laughing. So weird! 😊😆

The Parking Ticket #Fun #Silly #couple #Laughs

My wife and I went into town and visited a
When we came out, there was a cop writing
out a parking ticket.
We went up to him and I said, "Come on
man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?"
He just ignored us and continued writing the
I called him an "a**hole."
He glared at me and started writing another
ticket for having worn-out tires.
So my wife called him a "s*ithead."
He finished the second ticket and put it on
the windshield with the first. Then he started
writing more tickets.
This went on for about 20 minutes. The more
we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
He finally finished, sneered at us and walked
Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it
and went home
We always look for cars with Biden-Harris
We try to have a little fun each day now that
we're retired.

Happy Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day.. it can either be seen as a day of grumbling and grief... Or a day to be loving and kind to one another. Even if it means smiling to a stranger in the grocery store. Snuggle your loved one or snuggle your pet. Be kind to yourself and love yourself for who you are.

Have an Awesome and Happy Valentine's Day.

My friend Herald


This is my friend Herald. A cute little succulent plant I adopted for 2 dallors from the local superstore. She was in desperate need of sunlight, love, and friendship. Just like me! The solitude provided by Covid has allowed us to have friends outside my species. 😉🤪😂 Finding fun in the small stuff.
