    It has been about a week of feeling really good and then it all went down hill. I am in this funny state right now where I can't decide if i am suicidal, anxious, or just down. Maybe it is a combination of all of these or maybe it is nothing. I don't know what to do with these feelings and I really don't want them to turn into anything serious!

    electricalanomaly too sad to say hi.

    Hey so we all have bad days right? Sleep on it and hopefully in the morning it'll be a better day when you wake up.

    Maybe try working through the feelings? I know for myself I don't pay any attention to them most of the time.... but if you're not sure what to do with them maybe you just need to examine and accept them (just accept you have them, not advocating acting on anything). Does that make any sense? Sorry if it doesn't!

    Did this feeling happen in one day? Maybe don't jump to conclusions about it just yet. You could just simply be tired. Or just take a moment to reflect about it. I can understand your worry about negative thoughts coming into your mind, but constantly worrying about that can have the same effect.

    Just to clarify what I meant before, I meant I have the feelings but try to ignore what they are about, this doesn't help because I still feel terrible. Maybe accepting them and letting yourself feel them is better. Sorry to ramble.

    Thanks everyone. The feelings were still there today and basically just got worse. I feel like crying tonight and really just want to go to bed its only 7 here but I think I am just going to sleep. Thanks everyone

    I hope you were able to sleep okay. I hate those funny feelings that you just can't put a description to. I usually just say it's an "off day" and I try to just keep busy and distract myself. Sometimes the urge to cry just hits me and I never fight it. When my bf asks me what's wrong, I can't always describe it so I say "I'm just letting out stress." We both realize that means I have no clue and it's a way to release the anxiety.

    Today was another weird day. Felt a lot of tension today in addition to the other things.

    Tension as in stress or muscular? You know, my doctors told me that because I had such high levels of stress, I produced too much cortisol which made my body weak and I was always achy, sore and brittle. It also raises your blood pressure so lots of times you get even more anxiety.

    Can you do anything to relax, like stretching or taking a hot bath or something like that?

    Both, Frances, I have had so much stress that it is making me tense muscularly. I took a hot bath and then cold shower to try and snap out of it but it didn't help.

    I'm sorry you're going through that...I hope it's something temporary. When I was on all sorts of meds, I was basically a zombie, I didn't feel much. Maybe it could be your meds doing it?
