I Tried

I tried to go to church this morning, but I had a panic attack and had to leave. I had been anxious all morning, but thought I could do it. It's not even a big church, just a couple hundred people. I only talked to about 10 people before I started to panic. I feel so numb. People need other people, so why do I find a need to avoid them. I just freak out in crowds.

(((WW)))) Dear one, I am so sorry it was a struggle for you today! Dear do not look at it as a failure today. You talked to about ten people!! That is quite an accomplishment. Next week may just be a bit easier!

Blessings!

I feel very uncomfortable in crowds. I generally don't panic but there have been times that I do because I'm too overwhelmed with other stuff. You've been very overwhelmed lately. Don't be too hard on yourself.

Wanda, I know it's really hard, but maybe we can put a positive spin on this. YOU TRIED TO GO TO CHURCH! You actually got yourself there! I assume you already knew how many people attend, so you did a great job trying to challenge the anxiety. I'm incredibly impressed. Although I'm guilty of doing the same, beating yourself up over things doesn't do much to help us feel better.

Wishing you well,
NOS
