My history with anxiety spans over close to 15 years so it’s not unusual for me to get stuck in a rut, hit an anxious slump and go through the ‘down’ side of the many ups and downs that living with an anxiety disorder brings, I get through it and pick myself back up again, but at the moment this slump feels never ending.
Lately my anxiety seems to have resurfaced and quite honestly has got me feeling a bit down in the dumps! So I’ve decided to set myself some goals for July, things that I have avoided due to this little slump I’m in, things that ultimately will help get me back on track, things that help ease the stress and worry that comes with the anxiety and that I know I’ll feel very positive about achieving!
I feel I’ve taken a step back with my Anxiety lately, or 1 step forward 10 steps back! If you’ve read my Mental health awareness post (I’ll link it at the bottom) you’ll know I do have a bit of a history with anxiety and panic attacks and was diagnosed with G.A.D (Generalised Anxiety Disordor) in my late teens. It does fluctuate, highs, lows, ups and downs, good days and bad days, sometimes I can go months without it affecting me and then bam!! It hits me right in the face and once again becomes a daily struggle!
Friday 23rd June 2017. Our holiday certainly did fly by and that morning, whilst the fishermen, Pat and Ryan, went off to their third fishing match we started to pack and get things ready for the journey home later on that evening.
22nd June 2017, Day 6 of our family holiday. Pat and Ryan was off to their 2nd fishing match and the rest of us didn’t have an awful lot planned, the weather had cooled which I have to admit, although I had enjoyed those glorious sunny days was a relief for me.
21st June 2017, Day 5 in Cornwall and the first fishing match for Pat and Ryan so they were both up and out early to prepare for a day of fishing. It was set to be another hot day and with a trip to Newquay planned for the afternoon we decided to have a leisurely morning relaxing at the caravan, fan on max, while the girls played happily.
20th June 2017, Day 4 of our Cornish getaway. I woke in the wee hours and noticed that little monkey’s blow up Peppa pig bed was looking a bit flat! Sure enough on a closer inspection our poor baby girl was basically sleeping on the floor! So Luke was moved to the sofa and Freya in with me until it was time to rise and shine.
