Relaxing

Post by Booklover » Thu Feb 28, 2019 8:43 am

I was just wondering does anyone else find it hard to truly relax. I have tried lots of times but can never let myself completely relax as am always scared what will happen. It’s like if I relax then the gates holding all the memories back will burst and I will be flooded with them. Also I always need to be ready to run away from danger.

i also find it hard to relax completely. as hard as i try, there always seems to be some sort of tension.

SH also helps calm me. that is probably the closest I've come. OD'ing made me more anxious, so i don't do that anymore. maybe i took the wrong stuff lol.

something healthier i like to do is listen to relaxing music. works best with headphones.

same. not sure how to relax a distracted mind. either there is a lot of tension from holding the flood gates shut, or a lot of panic, pain, and drowning from the rush of the flood.

sorry, wish i had something more positive and encouraging to say.
