I m new to this group this is the first time I have tried

[200]

I m new to this group this is the first time I have tried to chat online. Right now I'm experiencing a great deal of anxiety. For four years I have tried my best to be invisible. I had a bad childhood. I grew up in foster care. But I was able to put that behind me so I thought. Then 4 years ago I had a series of events involving a supervisor I had to stop working Now In can barely leave the house.
I try to pretend I'm ok and everything is normal. My family means we'll I know But I can't tell them really how I feel. They don't understand. I'm tired hearing being told to calm down, just relax and my favorite when you decide to get better you will. I'm tired I have no one to talk to Most days I say very little. What's the point The insurance company cut my sessions for therapy to twice a month. It was the one thing I depended on some where safe to talk. I feel so alone

I am so sorry you are feeling so alone and anxious. I have found that taking magnesium (magnesium malate is best) and ginseng helped me a lot w both, they calm the mind body and spirit and get rid of sticky negative thoughts the loop around in the mind. Also, getting outside, laying on the grass to get grounded and breathe in fresh air, looking at stars, these things help a lot too. Our environment help or hurt our mental health and physical health. Also, if you can't afford counseling, many churches offer it free. Speak aloud positive truths to counteract the negative thoughts and things said to us. Also, Volunteering helps us get our of our own misery to help others, which helps us. Call those negatives a lie and correct them to yourself. Protect yourself from those who put that added stress on you

Thks for the suggestions. I like going to the park. Theres a state park close to where I live. I walk the trails in the area very few people if any goes. Being alone and just focusing on what I see is like meditation for me. I go to therapy. My sessions were reduced to twice a month. That set me back. Im hoping my appeal will go through and I can continue once a week. I dont have anyone who I can tell what Im really thinking or feeling. And I dont deal with change well either. I have to work on how negativity affects me. The one thing I have done is distanced myself from anyone who is there for me. Unfortunately, I have lost most of my friends. I keep telling myself they were never my friends. When they had any problems they would call me and I was there but when I needed a friend they told me I ve changed. I dont need them. Im not much of a people person any more anyway.

@Round3 Its one of the things I love about having pets. My dogs calm me down. If I didnt have them I dont know what I would do.
