Anxiety everyday hypoxic brain injury recovery stories exiles

I have had my share of experience with anxiety. A quick overview of my time with it is a severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories 5-year long journey that hasn’t gone by all that quick. I had my first real, full blown anxiety attack when I was 18. I had been struggling with the beginning stages of insomnia severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories when it hit. I have never felt anything like it. I have been stressed out before and felt anxious, I even remember times when I was little describing feelings severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories to my mom that could only be characterized as anxiety. But I had never felt the chest crushing, lungs gasping, whole body shaking attack experience until the summer after my severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories senior year of high school.


And lady, I thought I was dying. I mean despite the feelings of impending doom, I thought I was truly losing my mind, that I had some serious medical cause for these increasingly severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories unbearable symptoms.

Then I went to a psychologist. He wasn’t so hasty with prescribing medication. He did a lot of neurological tests and suggested I severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories try natural remedies. I am not saying that that is the right solution severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories for everyone, some people are in need of medication, but for me, it was a spiritual and mental issue that could only severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories be masked by medication, never cured. I wasn’t unbalanced hormonally or in need of really any consumable severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories substance.

Possibly, one of the most helpful things my psychologist did for severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories me was tell me that I was not crazy. So, love, if you are reading this today, you are not crazy. You are not alone, you are not forsaken, unloved or unworthy. You may have some things to work through, but we all do. And I know that you know you have things to severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories work through but you are looking at it all right severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories now and there is too much. There is nowhere to begin. It makes you more anxious just looking at it all. You want to run away, hide, curl up in a ball and cry. But darling, you don’t have to fight it. God will fight it for you.

I have spoken with more and more women lately about severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories their battles with anxiety. I have spoken with friends who have friends who are severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories dealing with anxiety. Most of us, have dealt or know someone dealing with anxiety, to varying degrees. The more I speak with people about this, the clearer one thing becomes; anxiety is the grasping for control of things that are severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories uncontrollable.

In my own personal story this has played out. I am anxious about my health and wellness, about aspects of those things which I can’t control such as how and when I die. So, I find the things I can control such as a severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories clean house. I over correct by disinfecting surfaces 3 to 4 times. Washing my hands numerous amounts of times etc. This over correction and grasping for control turns into paranoia. For instance, now I cannot touch food without washing my hands multiple severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories times or lay things on surfaces that have not been severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories disinfected and so on and so forth, spiraling downward until I snap.

Okay, so maybe that is not you. Maybe you are anxious about your family. Maybe you cannot control a lot of aspects about your severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories home life but you can control what things your family severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories does on the weekends. You grasp for control in that area and hold on severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories tightly. Then whenever your family is unable to comply with what severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories you would like to do on the weekends, you spin out of control.

Okay, what about with kids. You have children and you’re anxious because there is so much you cannot control severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories in their lives, their health, maybe their education, their outside influences. So, you grasp for the things that you can control such severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories as their transportation, their diet, their wardrobe and you hold tightly to these things. When someone else transports them or feeds them or they severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories chose what to wear, you lose it because that is all that you had severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories in the world to control and now it’s gone.

We have to open our tightly clenched fists that are severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories holding whatever it is we are trying to suck our severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories security out of and give it to god. Whatever it is that is making you seek control in severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories unhealthy ways… babe, give it up. For me personally, that is looking to god and saying, father, my life is yours. It ends on this earth however and whenever you see severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories fit. Your thoughts and your ways are higher than mine (the book of isaiah chapter 55, verses 8 and 9). You are perfect and so, your will is perfect. You love me more than I love me. My life is yours, I surrender it to you.

The other thing I tell myself is, we will cross that bridge when we get to it. That brings me peace because it reminds my frantic mind severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories that I have never come to anything that god did severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories not bring me through. He has always been my help, he has always been my strength. But I cannot know the future, that’s his job. I love the verse from the song “trust in you” by lauren daigle that says, “truth is you know what tomorrow brings, there’s not a day ahead you have not seen, so in all things be my life and breath, I want what you want lord and nothing less.”

It is true, god knows what is in tomorrow, the struggles, the victories, so he knows how best to prepare us and he severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories will. He always knows how he is going to get us severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories through those tough times. He is not bound by time, he sees the days before we set foot in them severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories and is working in us to prepare us for what severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories is waiting for us. He is our sustenance. He wants to give us the best.

I believe that anxiety in our world today is at severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories an all time high because we can faux-control everything. I mean, think about it. We can change the temp of our house from inside severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories our car. We can control the color of our hair, our diet, we can control how much we know by googling everything. We can control our presence on social media and control severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories what the world sees and what it doesn’t. We can control how we dress. We have the awesome ability to make so many decisions severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories and control so many aspects that when it comes to severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories things that we cannot control like the weather and if severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories people like us, and how they treat us, our health, these things cause anxiety because we are so used to severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories being able to control everything.

My guess is that way back before the tech age severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories when you had to check the weather by going outside severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories and the only people who knew you were the ones severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories you saw face to face; anxiety rates were probably a lot lower. You knew you did not have control over the earth severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories but you probably did stop and admire it a lot severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories more instead of posting a picture of it on social severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories media and hoping people liked what you saw because if severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories they didn’t it probably wasn’t that great in the first place and maybe you severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories should have controlled what they saw a little bit more severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories with just one more filter.… yeah, we live in an anxious time. A time where most of us want to be in severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories control of as much as possible.

Are we trying to be god? Desiring to be? …yep. And that shouldn’t surprise us. We are just taking after the mother and father of severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories humanity. When adam and eve disobeyed god what they were saying severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories is, we would like to be like god instead of listen severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories to him. Remember? The serpent said, you’re not gonna die, you’re going to be like god, knowing good and evil. And they were like, yes please, we would like to get on the most holy’s level. (the book of genesis chapter 3).

If while reading this you realized that you have not severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories given up control to the creator god, the one who formed you, who loves you, I encourage you to work on it. I know how difficult it is but the peace it severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories brings is so very much worth it. We are working on this together babe, it is a tough one but the beauty is that severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories in relinquishing control we gain freedom and we deepen our severe hypoxic brain injury recovery stories relationships with the lord god, the one who is in control.
