Panic season coming up!!

Well winter is coming up and it is the worst season for me. The past and memories of bad things happening were in the winter so I can already feel the memories starting to tremble in my mind. Any thoughts or suggestions to get through the season?

Re: Panic season coming up!!

Wow thats good advice i too suffer from the same thing and it sucks!! nothing helps for me i try to take my meds and not think about it. avoiding going outside when its dark i find helps me anyways. im in canada so we have had snow for a couple of weeks no with NO sun just white shy and ground. we just have to count down the days for summer! i associate it with death, sickness, hospitals, medical tests and bad news im not really sure why but im convinced if something bad is going to happen now is the time.

My "advice" fell under the thoughts part of that, it wasn't "advice". Maybe you don't think it's got any merit, but that thought helps me out a lot, and I was sharing hoping that maybe it could help someone else out.

Yeah that's a good way to look at it, I will give it a shot. Everytime I start getting anxious or bad memories come up I will say that to myself and see if it helps.
Thanks, I will post on any success.

Re: Panic season coming up!!

I have this problem too, immortal. I am deathly afraid of vomitting and I associate all of my bad feelings about vomitting to the winter time. I'm already having these bad anxiety attacks and feeling sick every day. No doctors can tell me if it is there is something physically wrong with me or if it is my anxiety making me feel ill all the time. I honestly don't know how I'm going to get thru this winter. BUT I'm going to try my best to be strong and not let my mind take control over my body. I hope that you have success with fighting off those memories. Good luck to you!

This is my bad time of the year. I just try to get through it as best I can. I tell myself this happens every year, and every year I make my way through it. Xanax doesn't hurt having around, either.

Re: Panic season coming up!!

Maybe we are all suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. I know when the days get shorter and grayer, I slow down and anxiety increases as well as muscle aches and pains.

If that is the case, my dentist ( always have TMJ at this time of the year) told me about some special lights that he uses in his office and sits under for a couple of extra hours a day. He said that it really helps him.

Re: Panic season coming up!!

I always experience more anxiety in the winter. I have no idea why. It usually starts to kick up around October (when it starts getting chilly outside where I live) and sticks around until March or April. It has to have something to do with the weather.

Hang in there though, you know you can make it through it and winter will be over with before you know it.

As for bad memories, my mom's bday is in December, so that is tough, but I use a lot of self talk to turn those memories in to something positive instead of negative, thus helping with my anxiety.

My thoughts are with you,

Kaytee
