i seem to cry a lot. every little thing can upset me. if someone’s tone seems a little mean, i cry. even if they weren’t trying to be harsh. i have anxiety pretty bad. some days are worse than others. i am married and don’t live near my family. so i have his family and like one friend in this town. i love my husband and don’t regret moving out here but it’s hard not having many people near me that i get along with. this may be why i’m always anxious as well. although i’ve had anxiety since before i moved out here, this situation may be triggering sometimes. i got a dog to help with the night anxiety and she has mostly helped with it.

      Life can feel extremely overwhelming at times, and I'm so sorry you are feeling that way now. I have been there many times. What has helped me most is knowing that I can do things to make myself feel better. Instead of feeling like everything is out of my control, I know that there are something's that will make me feel better in the long or short run if I embrace them. Take some deep breaths, and try to focus on what you can do to solve the problem instead of solely focusing on it. I have had trouble sleeping my entire life because of my anxiety, so I had to change a lot of things to make it better. I now have a set bedtime routine that starts after I take my melatonin. I dim the lights, play rain sounds, and get ready for bed. When I am feeling down, I try to do things that I know will make me feel better in the long run. Like getting 10-30 minutes of sunshine, doing a 15-30 minute workout, playing video games with my friends, or calling up a loved one.
