A light beyond the tunnel...

I see it, I do. Things are still a little hard but I think they are getting better. I am learning to calm myself without taking anxiety meds. I am taking the pressure off and using the help that comes my way.

My acupuncturist commented that I was holding myself differently than in the past. That made me think I need to make a change and find my self confidence and assurance again. Maybe the kids have seen my sweat and that is why they are taking advantage. Now I am using my breath, authority and reason to reign us all back in.

I like to help others and lend them strength. That makes me feel good. I am going to try to do more of that. My new mantra is: "This is a marathon, not a sprint so stop, slow down and breath." Some days may be harder than others but I remember now that it is good to be alive!

I'm glad you took the time to chat with the Delaware group tonight. It was FUN, and I hope it helped you.

It took me awhile, but I am getting better at breathing to calm anxiety. I had to stop the medication because it was becoming a crutch to fight anxiety.

I have not talked about it yet because I just week I am hoping yoga help with the attacks.
