That's so awesome to hear. I'm glad it worked for you that has given me a great smile
It doesn't work absolutely every time, but I find it always helps a little, if nothing else you've tried and distracted yourself for a second or two.
I'm a morning person and if I am not ill they are my best times. But for anxiety they are definitely the worst. Since being ill I have come to dread them. Probably part of the reason it is hard to go to sleep. I have found the only solution is to get up, get moving around or doing something. If I can't get out of my place, then doing something indoors, if I can't get out of bed then going online with my laptop and learning something or, like this morning, I am here so that I don't feel alone. After a while of activity the worst of it usually passes now. But I did have a long time where nothing helped.. but you have to try because otherwise the illness wins.
Thanks for being here Deb.. reading your post has helped my morning to feel better and I hope yours will also get better
