Anxiety spiral

(5 Posts)

Morning all. Since returning from holiday yesterday my anxiety has absolutely spiralled. I was constantly waking through the night and though I tried not to i got so upset. I beat a lot of it on holiday by challenging myself and in the end had a good time. On the journey home though my husband had to brake heavily due to an idiot on the motorway and grabbed me as I was not looking to steady me. That really scared me especially after the accident and I wonder if that may be a trigger. I was also worrying about going back to work in the night - I'm only two weeks from leaving to start a new job which will be better in terms of travel but is a big change. I'm so fed up of this constant up and down

Hi joto,

That does sound like a likely trigger. Be kind to yourself, if you need a self care day then make that your priority. Do you have any strategies that help e.g. mindfulness, meditation, exercise etc?
