other than meds, are there other treatments that might help me?
Disturbance of skin sensation
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Deep breathing exercises. Ground yourself
Meds are a 2 edge sword, yes they help. But for me personally meds make me so tired and cause a lot of digestive problems. Especially constipation. For me smelling peppermint helps and going somewhere that is outside and I can be alone. I take deep breaths and really focus on slowing my breathing down
this sounds odd but showers are super relaxing for me. self care in general is helpful but showers specifically are so comforting and warm.. perfect for when i’m stressing out
The 321 method 3 things you can see around you 2 things you can touch around you 1 things you can smell around you
What helps me are showers too but cold ones. They seem to stimulate my mind and go on through the a lil better then usual.
I’ve benefitted a lot from taking Ashwaganda (herbal supplement, it can be found in any drug store and most grocery stores), reading the Bible consistently, and being more mindful of what I’m taking on. I also have sensory issues and so being aware of when I’m approaching a “boiling point” so to speak is really helpful in self regulating.
I like taking baths for like an hour and maybe use some Epson salt or the bubble bath stuff and it makes me feel very relaxed especially in stressful situations.
Magnesium glycinate & therapy. I’ve found that a lot of people with anxiety have trauma that needs to be worked through. Many have PTSD.
Yes, you can spend time in nature, spending time in nature is a natural curing method.
