Take a break from watching TV.   No news or QVC/HSN.


Have one of your favorite "adult beverage" 🍸🍺🥂🍷before you start the day, and one before you go to bed at night.  That usually helps overcome feelings of anxiety, loneliness, and despair.


For me,  alcohol has a calming effect,  and may help you too.  👍

I have  felt like this this past week..... having to stay inside because the air quality is toxic and really bad.  I can not just go for a walk or rake some leaves.... this  staying inside and the pandemic worries are starting to make me feel anxious. I hope here this weekend when the air is suppose to clear up I can start going outside and moving again... feel better.

@IMFat , alcohol is a depressant.

I get weepy when I think of my best golden friend who I lost several years ago.  I will miss her forever.

 

@goldensrbest it will get better.  I was inconsolable but time does change the intensity of it.

Re: My nerves are so on edge

This may not be for everyone who has lost a dear pet. But I use to write little notes to my golden girl and then put them in a box. That was very therapeutic. They were just little things I would  want to say to her if she were still by my side. That box filled up so fast and I had to move them to a bag...LOL! These days I don't do much writing but I do talk to her from time to time and I tell her how much I miss her and that I can't wait until I see her again.Heart

Re: My nerves are so on edge

I have always gotten involved in political discussions, even back when Bush W. was elected.  I understood what the "opposition" was doing and I was in the thick of it.  Never bothered me.  Skip to now.... same thing, I'm in there on twitter (my first mistake) and I understand what's happening but the big difference now is that I'm Diabetic and my numbers keep jumping up even though I'm eating the same things I've always eaten (and when) for the last 15 years that I've been under control!!  I know that stress is a huge component to keeping your numbers under control but I've had to stop the news (almost) and get off Twitter.... numbers made a remarkable comeback and I'm stable again!  Sheesh, huh??
