When my anxiety won’t be quiet.

I have anxiety. Transitions and socialising can be hard for me. I find that it’s important for me to try to get in some down time, and that I need to talk to people in my life about my anxiety.

Most of the time before going to vaulting practice I get a stomach ache. I vault on a barrel in a vaulting club. “Nausea” is one of the symptoms of social anxiety. Usually, the stomach ache fades and I’m fine, but I have a hard time with it while waiting for my ride to vaulting practice.

I am trying multiple things to manage my anxiety including down time (listening to music, drawing, etc.), using my weighted lap pad, etc.

I don’t know if I will ever be anxiety free, but I’m going to keep trying. 😊

  1. remember that the goal in life isnt to be “cool” all the time. i mean, i can definitely understand if being cool as often as humanly possible is something you strive for, but in the event it isnt exactly like that, it doesnt mean you havent met all the goals people should have as people.

    what i mean is, people are so ridiculous “positive” these days. it was never a goal for humanity to be happy all the time, or to like everything, or to be cool all the time, any more than it was to be perfect. sometimes when you “fail,” youre doing exactly what you should be doing (probably.) it just wont feel that way, because society has gone nuts and has to smile constantly. its kind of creepy… im happy though! i swear! 😀 🙂
