    Anxiety and Racing Thoughts

    It is that tension, pressure in the chest, racing thoughts and checking in to see if everything is ok.

    It feels like something is going to happen at any moment. Something bad. You don’t know what it is but you scan for it. You are on the lookout for it. It’s like you are stuck in a suspenseful movie, always looking for danger.

    No matter what you do, ignore, distract, tell yourself it will be ok. Nothing seems to help.

    What can I do, as I get older the anxiety and racing thoughts get worse.

    Worry about kids, job, economy, relationship, housing, community, global warming, social events…. This list is overwhelming just looking at it.

    So what do you do? Clean, organize, Isolate, binge watch tv, pray, meditate

     

    Stress and Burnout

    I Have Lost All Motivation

    Overwhelm. Pressure, Tension. Constant Fear of Failure. Loss of Motivation and Energy.

    The constant feeling of being under the pressure of a deadline, project, paper, expectation.

    It feels like you are going to POP!!!!

    There is constant tension in your body, mind, spirit…you don’t why but you are forgetting things, don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. You HATE GOING TO WORK. You feel detached from the world and nothing seems to satisfy you.

    This feeling of dread won’t leave you alone, you feel it constantly.

    No matter what you do it is there. You try to ignore it and hope it goes away. You try to talk to your friends, it doesn’t help. You just feel hopeless that something will change, you just can’t shake the feeling, low energy, sleepiness, negativity.

    It feels like it just looms over you from morning and night and now it feels like it’s come to a breaking point.

    You might be thinking

    “I feel tired all the time.”

    “I can’t hang in there to keep up with my old pace.”

    “I feel lazy.”

    “I don’t have the energy to do that.”

    “I HATE MY JOB but I can’t quit I need the money.”

    Mens Counseling

    Angry, Sad, Depressed, Confused

    Something just feels off. People tell you “JUST BE A MAN!” But you have no idea what that means.

    You may be walking through life asking yourself “Is this it?” Where is my purpose, the excitement, the adventure?

    I am bombarded with so many confusing messages of who I should be. If I am too loud I am aggressive, dangerous, selfish; quite too passive, weak, not manly.

    These messages paralyze you. So you procrastinate, feel trapped, like you are locked in a cage and don’t know how to get out.

    Womens Therapy

    You look at your life and you wonder how you got here.

    On the surface things might look fine, but underneath you are exhausted, overwhelmed and unhappy.

    You sometimes wake up with a panicky feeling, dreading the day. Somehow you will yourself to go through the motions, but there has to be more to life than this.

    Everything feels hard and you are so lonely.

    What happened to the joy and the excitement? Or maybe you have been waiting on joy to arrive and it just never has.

    Your life is feeling stuck and you are worrying about making even small decisions.

    When you do finally make a decision you worry about other people judging you for the decisions you make.

    You have become anxious and overwhelmed thinking about the future, and this makes you feel more pressured to figure it out.

    These feelings make you feel like a failure so you hide them and you try to figure them out on your own.

    But you don’t have to.

    PTSD

    Have you experienced a traumatic event? Are you suffering from lingering fear and anxiety? Do you feel like you no longer have any control over how you think, feel and behave?

    Posttraumatic stress disorder – also known as PTSD – is a mental health challenge that may occur in individuals who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a terrorist act, an act of war, a serious accident, rape, or any other violent personal assault.

    It is believed that PTSD affects nearly four percent of the U.S. adult population. While it is usually linked with veterans who’ve experienced combat, PTSD occurs in all people regardless of age, race, nationality or culture. In fact, women are twice as likely to experience PTSD than men.
