Anyone feel they are always tense/difficult to relax?
Although I seem to be losing some of the horrible menopause symptoms (hopefully my body and mind are "settling down" to the hormone imbalance), I'm still battling with anxiety. I've got some tranx to take when needed, but even if I do, my body still feels like it's in a state of "super tension". Sometimes I'm really knackered and just want to sit and relax and watch TV or something, but find it so hard, almost like I need constantly to be "up and doing" or "out and about".
I don't know if this is because when I sit and try to relax and am not distracted, I begin to think about all the anxiety symptoms, which can kick them off again, or perhaps being alone, but I'm pretty good at riding through anxiety most of the time, but just seems so much more difficult if I try to relax.
I've done all the usual relaxation techniques and breathing, and I know this takes time and effort, but sometimes seems like nothing but nothing I do will relieve this tension (exercise helps for a short time).
Maybe others have the same prob?
