Distractions anyone??

Well, I spent my first full day in groups today. I should have known it'd be too much. Between that and the ungodly hot weather I think it messed me up a bit. I came home and had a massive anxiety attack. I seriously thought I was about to have a heart attack. So I tried laying down since I thought I'd pass out if I didn't. Talked to my sister for a while on fb and tried txting anyone I could get. My bf called. He always seems to know when I need him :) Finally got feeling a little better. He told me I might need to get hydrated...duh I should have thought of that :/

I like meditation as my distraction.

My daughter just asked if we could get a jigsaw puzzle to do together :)

I meditate too. Especially when I'm having trouble sleeping. I daydream alot too :P

I do have a problem with sitting still though. I have a huge issue with feeling lazy if I'm not doing something stimulating. Depression has really shot me with this because I am not productive in the least when I'm depressed and people have called me lazy because of that. So now i have this issue with being lazy. If I'm not up doing something I must be lazy :/ Suddenly I've convinced myself i have to be busy.

I do have a very busy mind though even if I'm not physically able. I can easily daydream about various things but I still have trouble totally calming myself down.

I feel like there's a 500lb. weight tied to my feet and its called fat :/ I'm really miserable and automatically I blame eating and gaining weight.

I've had that too - the heat/humidity itself can make it hard to breathe, and anxiety is like that as well

I am finding writing a journal is helping me get stuff out of my head.
