How to deal with what ifs

Today has not been a great morning:(. I don't know if its cause I'm sad the weekend went so quickly and now I'm back to work or what. Just feeling super sad and super anxious. My breathing is all over the place. Does this happen to you sometimes?

Having trouble with exposure plan

I was wondering what strategies you have used to stop focusing on the breathing? I am so frustrated I just want this to be done. On Friday I actually was so distracted that I didn't think about it for a few hours but then it came back and I just miss that relief of not worrying about it. I just don't know how to get my mind to stop and Its like the more you tell yourself stop doing it your body just wants to do it more.

How to deal with what ifs

Thank you so much. I really needed that. I am feeling extra emotional today for some reason and trying not to break down crying at work! Its not a great feeling. I get random days like this especially when I am feeling overwhelmed. I know I feed into it with my damn fears. I wish this was easier to let go. Slowly I am guessing!

How to deal with what ifs

Hahha. Well that made me smile. I am glad I can come here and talk about these things. It is super frustrating and it gets me down missing how I used to feel when this breathing thing wasn't an issue and I was happier. Like now I stress and get sad about the silliest things. My fiancé is going to Montreal for the weekend and I am so sad thinking omg I won't see him for the whole weekend. He's one person who really helps me through this so its hard to not be around him lol.

Thank you so much! How did you break the habit of breathing too deeply. I catch myself sometimes trying to get as much air as I can :(. I hate the feeling of "not getting enough air".

How to deal with what ifs

No it has been a busy day but I am going to yoga tonight so I'm hoping that helps relax me. I also noticed (now that I read about taking big gulps in from the mouth that I even do that through my nose!) I was noticing for a while that sometimes I would breathe so much through my nose that as silly as it sounds I felt my nostrils grow larger and my throat felt funny now I realize its because I'm trying to take in these big breaths through my nose. Ughh anxiety.

How to deal with what ifs

I'm seeing her Tuesday. Today was a busy week and we couldn't find a time that worked for both of us unfortunately.
I'm going to talk to my doctor today because I started ciprolax in June and I swear my emotions have been so up and down and I wonder if this is a side effect of the pill. If it is I don't want to be on it anymore. I hate pills to begin with but felt like I needed the help because I was such a mess in June.
