How do you guys deal with psychical anxiety? It's the feeling like where we know how we are having low blood sugar, but yesterday my sugar was 137. Then, I started to feel shaky, weak, and my speech was kinda stuttering when I talked. This was at my work when it happened. When I got home, I could feel my arm and hand tense up. So, I took my anxiety medicine, ate my supper, and took a bath. I did feel better after that. But I was wondering what you guys do to help yourself with the problem. Last night, I left my TV on when I went to bed, because it can shut itself off.

I have also been through emotional anxiety and I could not stop crying. I felt like I was gonna drown in my own tears, and not be able to sleep, because it was 1:00 something AM. The story of this is, I ordered a CD from Amazon, and it use to listen to the cassette when I was a baby. There were some songs that I remembered from it. The thing is that, after I listened to the whole CD, I just cried, and then I stopped for a good long while. Then the tears came down again. It is a great CD though, and it is an amazing one too. The thing is though, when I was a baby I was very sick.

Ever since I was born very prematurely (at only 24 weeks and weighing only 1 pound, 3.5 ounces), I've had to deal with serious health problems. I stayed in the hospital for almost two years battling bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and after I was released, I still had to be on a ventilator for a while at home, with nursing care around the clock.

I ended up blind in my right eye, and I also struggle with glaucoma and diabetes. But despite all of the health challenges I've faced, God has been powerfully at work in my life.

I have never felt that kind of anxiety. It must me suffocating to go through some of that. I can get emotionally messed up sometimes and usually it's caused by frustration. The thing that helps me recoup is to take a step back, re-evaluate the situation and make a plan. The anxiety goes away when I have a a direction to go. Or if I finally get an answer I have been seeking, that helps me too. Even if it's not the answer I want, it's still gives me a cue to go a certain direction.

If all else fails, being busy always makes me feel better. I tell you, when I am really, really upset. I have the cleanest house! LOL

You answered your own question with your last sentence…smile…YOU BELIEVE and to me that is very important…next is the hard part…FAITH and turning everything over to God…I have had a pretty bad life up until a few years ago…but I never gave in..even when I was at my lowest points..I always believed God would get me through and deliver in my life and he always did…I don't mean to sound like a preacher..and if you find it offensive please tell me…But do you belong to a supportive religious institution???..They can make all the difference in the world…I miss my old church in Brooklyn and haven't found a good fit for me down here yet..but when I get upset I play praise and worship music and it ALWAYS lifts me up…
