Default Fustration....

Hi everybody. It's been a frustrating 6 weeks. However, I finally recovered from covid -19. I am feeling pretty good about that and I didn't go to the hospital while I was recovering.

However, i was cleaning my counter and i was wearing a ball cap. I bumped the beak of the cap on the counter. After this happened ,my anxiety went thru the roof. So i stopped what i was doing and i used my cbt coping stratégies and tools. I am happy my anxiety finally went down.. I will be ok. I sweat buckets when i get anxious.

My startle response is bad thou. I didnt give myself a concussion but this was not helpful.
I got a headache. Its probably my mind playing anxiety tricks on me.

What else can i do to cope?

-Alex

Will you tell a bit about CBT coping strategies for members that might not know anything about it?
That might be a good topic for a new thread..

Is part of it logic self talk?
Something like - I only bumped my cap, nothing more than that....I am OK.

Maybe some deep calm breathing to reduce the anxiety & tension?

So, i acknowledge what I am feeling so ( I feel sweaty, mind is racing, dread, helplessness, anxiety etc..) . I don't suppress it or ignore it. I remind myself : just a bump on my break of my cap, nothing bad happened. I then do deep breathing,. I pay attention to my breathing and relax myself. That's about it. Nothing special and it works pretty well. Journaling helps too, to make sense of what I am feeling. Using logic self talk like you said in your previous post.

I realize my anxiety will always be around but at least I can manage it and live a normal life..

I am just curious what other members of this forum do when they deal with these stressful situations......
