I always get crazy anxious the night before work and the morning of, even though I have a good time at my job. The only thing that helps is smoking (w33d) before I sleep and when I wake up, but I don’t always have the money for that. What can i even do? Obviously anxiety meds could help but I have work in the morning and I’m starting to freak myself out over nothing.

      @carter._.16 idk why i didn’t think of drawing because that’s something I love doing. I’m also a huge fan of physical contact which helps a lot but I feel like no matter what I do I’m just so anxious

      I'm the same way tbh. The beat thing I can do for myself is put on one of my favorite shows/movies and sometimes I'll draw/doodle to help get my anxious energy out. Another thing that helps me is physical contact. It's very grounding. So just giving someone a hug or petting one of my animals helps. I know not everyone has that, but it is helpful to me

          @Slater yeah I get that. Anxiety is a b*tch to be honest And sometimes it just doesn't feel like it will ever go away. But it will eventually. And you just have to do the things that help lessen it so you're not miserable all of the time

      same, I think I love my job, but I always get anxious and start wanting to quit because I feel like I'm terrible at it.

        @AriEden literally same. I’ll get random feelings of panic throughout the day and I’m scared that I won’t be able to pull it together. I also had a panic attack my first day

          @Slater oh dear, were you around ppl the first day? how did they respond?

      I feel this. Anticipation anxiety is no fun. I usually try to distract my brain and set a time in my head for when I have to start to get ready and literally do stuff that takes my mind off of it until then ie: watch videos do a little craft, clean something etc etc. That's also easier said than done for me I guess because of ADHD but that's what helps me

      Anxiety is the devil. The moment I wake up I think and worry a out what can and will go wrong. I feel doomed before my day even starts. I don’t like feeling this way, I tell myself to stop worrying but it’s not that simple.😩

      I know the feeling. I used p*rn, m*sturbation and org*sm as a coping mechanism. It wasn't long before I was addicted. One thing God's shown me, though, is that addictions do NOT help. They make you feel good and even calm you down for a time, but it doesn't get to the root of the issue. I know that counselors are a great help when it's the right fit. I encourage you to look for one; the stigmatism around counselors is false. Sometimes having an outside perspective, especially a professionals, is a real help and a huge blessing. God is also known as the Mighty Counselor; He's been teaching me stuff even when I didn't know what the heck was going on 😂 My anxiety is high, and it's hard to do my job. But learning to understand why that is is a huge first step towards uprooting it. Those results last.

      Hard to give advice on this as it's something that is gonna differ from person to person and situation to situation but I find your tactics mixed with years of self management practices manage me through my experiences like that though I fail if it's not something like work and I don't have someone accompanying me usually

      I think for me? Weed has definitely worsened my anxiety. I’ve certainly dialed in down in terms of my intake, and I think I’m going to completely cut it out of my life

        @Coffeepot27 unfortunately it can react that way for some people

      We’ll see though
