Today I am thankful for this website: Anxiety No More.
Now most people will know that I experience some anxiety from time to time.
It appears after a lengthy time of stress that I don't do anything about.
It is my body's way of saying 'hey-you need to slow down for a bit'.
It is unpleasant, annoying and sometimes just makes you feel like you are never going to feel ok again.
I have been burnt out basically.
This website and the book that I bought, have been fantastic.
It has helped me understand myself and my body and why sometimes our bodies respond to stress by increasing the adrenalin (thus giving us those unpleasant feelings-which then make us worry-which then take us into the anxiety cycle).
I also sought help from a professional, who pretty much told me everything that this book talks about.
I have also talked about Compassion Fatigue before too, and this is certainly relevant to me.
I am thankful that my anxiety levels are pretty much back to normal again.
I am thankful that I have learnt that I need to spend more time doing the things that I love, with the people that I love, and the people that love me.
The website has some great information. It may not be relevant to anyone reading this who experiences anxiety. But I found it useful. So if someone else finds it useful too, then that is great!
