Feeling low. Anybody about?

I didn't really know where to post this.

I stupidly watched an episode of 24 hours in police custody earlier this evening and it's triggered me off.

Horrible memories swirling round my head.
I feel rubbish. Heart racing. Can't take my mind off it.

Hey there flowers need to chat?

I do. I don't really have much to talk about. Just needed to reach out. Nobody here in RL.

I'm just so daft for watching something that I knew would get me down. Gah. Trying to take my mind off it but I just have this heavy feeling in my body. What a donut.

Thank you both.

I feel a bit better already just to see some replies. Sometimes the night brings out the demons! And it can feel like I'm the only one in the whole world awake.

Floaty That's quite a common feeling from what I understand, and night time TV can often be darker and more triggering but it doesn't invalidate your feelings.

We're here with you.

I just feel angry about past things. I'm feeling really tightly wound. I wish I could say more but I worry is too identifiable but I don't want to be vague either.

I'm distracting myself by reading some of the lighter threads on here. Avoiding the serious ones.

Anxiety is exhausting. Now that I'm less upset my body feels so tired, but mind is still racing.

Anxiety is exhausting! It can keep you up till the early hours and wake you in the slightly less early hours, render you asleep throughout the afternoon!

Do you need to talk about the past things do you think?

floaty if you want to say more ove PM feel free, the chance of me identifying you is minimal.
