    No problem. Always happy to dish out squishy TLG cyber hugs
    Argh anxiety though...I can't even begin to deal with it sometimes! It takes me over. My eyes blur, my coordination is wrecked, everything and anything has my nerves standing on end...if it's too noisy I hate it, if it's silent I hate that too! Life shouldn't be this bad.

    Life definitely shouldn't be this bad. That's why we'd all recommend in here that you see a doctor and talk over meds/therapies that could potentially be used to alleviate your suffering. You mustn't keep suffering in silence!

    Thanks once again - I will try. It's a cliche but just talking about it does help. Especially you agreeing that anxiety can be horrible. I'm not just saying it I do think mine is quite a minor case, but I don't think I could deal with much more! I'm just not built strongly enough (yet - still time when I kick this all into touch).

    Anxiety is definitely very debilitating and is very horrible. I only have very mild anxiety, so I really do feel for those who suffer with it full-blown, as you seem to do :sadnod:

    Well another reason I feel it's very minor and feel a bit bad for even posting here is because there have been times when I've almost completely nipped it in the bud by simply getting more exercise and better diet which has also led to better sleep, the key instigator of the anxiety. But for reasons unknown, as more normal I felt, I succumbed to bad food again and the cycle began all over again. That was very much my own mistake as I was getting better, but I've not been able to get out of the rut again since. Actually just writing that has given me more motiviation to just go for this once and for all and fight it..but still, easier said than done sometimes Now you may understand my reluctance for meds; my issues while the symptoms may be horrid, I feel there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    Apologies for the mess of my posts and thinking, head hasn't been all over the place this much for a good while.

    Stop apologising! Also you're welcome to post in here as much or as little as you like! :yes:

    It certainly is very hard to get out of a rut. But just because you might think you're self-inflicting it, doesn't mean that you don't deserve help. Everyone deserves second chances if they want it, and everyone deserves to be helped

    If I could just get a clear run of everything going right, I'd be fine in no time I bet. It's just not being able to think straight. What I need to do is keep off junk food and do some exercise with this...I was on the cusp of feeling amazing at one point due to this. It helped me generally and my sleep hugely also. It sounds really quite easy considering the situation - why keep putting myself through largely unneccessary hell for junk food etc? But the anxiety is just so present and deep that, especially when at home, I can't get through a single night without comfort of some sort! Easiest one is junk. It's not like I can even enjoy it much at all due to everything, it just feels like it fills a gap, something of a comfort blanket fgs Maybe that's in the head and I just need to keep on going..24 hrs..48 hrs..and before I know it I'll be in at least a position to march forward somewhat. I've been through it all long enough what's a bit more going to do.

    I can empathise - I eat junk food like there's no tomorrow. It's not easy to be self-disciplined. It's worth giving it another shot though

    Is it really self discipline when it's about comfort as much as that? I mean I've long liked junk food, but more when I was younger for the actual yuminess. This is just..almost like I need it. Bad stuff.

    Do you think it's a type of eating disorder, like binge eating? Binge eating doesn't necessarily involve purging...

    No. Comfort pure and simple. When I was getting slightly better, I was able to give it up completely no bother. I just took a bite again and didn't get back out of the rut. When this is all over, and it will be, I'm never touching anything bad for me again..no bad food, no alcohol (easy as I never really drank anyway)..nothing. I always valued life but this has really expanded that

    Thank you. Writing here and getting your replies has focused and motivated me somewhat. Tempted to use it as a goal to come back to when everything is hopefully ok and try and help others. But maybe my ego is just too big to see things for how they are hmm..
