Experience 22 - ANXIETY

Last weekend I had anxiety like I've never had it before... you know that funny feeling you get in your stomach when you feel like something is wrong?

I had it ALL WEEKEND. I think I'm afraid of losing my job. I'm doing well at the job, and I have not had any seriously negative experiences/comment/indication from the doctors that I'm not. I LOVE the job. I think I'm afraid of losing something that I love so much. It's really perfect and everyone I work with is amazing.

This week I started back at work and the anxiety was gone.  It was really strange how it lasted an entire weekend and suddenly vanished.  Has this ever happened to you? Any tips on how to get rid of it? (I've heard exercise is good but I'm so lazy :) )


  1. I find prayer helps. Sometimes God can reveal what you are truly having anxiety about and touch your heart. I also find that meditating on the Word helps.

    I really like Jeremiah 29:11 that says " For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future."

    I also like Psalm 4:8 that says "In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe."

    That's how I deal with anxiety, just cast it on the Lord. Hope this helps!

  2. I have never experienced anxiety that bad, but I'm glad that it disappeared just in time for you to go to work! I'm sure you are awesome at your job, so just enjoy it and dont stress!

  3. Once in awhile, I get anxious also.... for no reason. Don't know what that is all about because it usually turns out fine.
