How do you deal with patience? It's a challenge with my anxiety. I'm in the waiting room of the doctors. I keep thinking, I just want to get it over with it.

      It's really hard in the moment! I tried the 5 feelings grounding, but it doorknob work for me. Before I found a daily med combo that works, I relief on xanax. I only took it when I knew I was going into an anxiety inducing situation. I once got to a point where I thought the only way I could get relief from it was to die, I went inpatient and that helped a lot.

      One thing I love about even now in “pretty much post Covid” (still madly have wear masks), is waiting in car until doctor is ready. They have a triage station at my doctors’ office to take vitals and explain to nurse reason for visit, then go back outside and they text you

      I'm also waiting to see my doctor right now. I'm distracting myself with this app and listening to music. I was supposed to be seen 30 minutes ago. Still waiting. Patience is difficult for me too. So I try to distract myself with things I enjoy. Did you bring headphones with you? Maybe you can watch cat videos or something.
