    Venturing out of the dark *TRIGGERS*

    I'm going to try and stop hiding in the darkest corners of the forum as it's not fair that my support comes from so few people. So this is me taking the first step.

    I feel strange today. Last night I felt like I was bouncing off the walls, and that showed I think, in a group convo I was having last night. I was the life and soul and I am never the life and soul of anything. I've had about 6 hours sleep, and although it's taken me a little while to get going, I feel like I have loads of energy, I can't sit still. I'm extremely irritable and I'm getting irritated because my fingers aren't working fast enough to type this. My thoughts are racing and feel all disjointed.

    It's such a strange feeling

    Woohoo, welcome to the outside world. You sound like me on a caffeine rush lol. Don't really have an answer but try to put the energy to good use.

    I just feel really jittery. I don't like it. It feels like I'm wound so tight and the smallest thing could make me snap.

    I know what you mean. It's times like that I am glad I live alone so no one to annoy me and no one for me to snap at.

    It's so good to see you out here .

    Where are you with your meds at the mo?
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    It's almost like a manic episode you're experiencing Jaq.

    I've not had a problem with racing thoughts though I've experienced disjointed thoughts in the past and found that most disconcerting.

    It's is good you're posting your thoughts Jaq, I've probably missed it but it looks like you're doing some med changes (I got that idea from a couple of previous posts). If that is the case it could be causing what you're experiencing at the moment and maybe you just have to ride out the storm.

    Take care Jaq

    What medication are you on?

    As for the jittering, I read somewhere it's due to excess adrenaline coursing through your body. They suggest going outside for a brisk walk or a run, which can be too much for me since I have low mood as well. I'm a beginner at yoga (I only started 3-4 weeks ago at the insistence of my husband so that I don't continually keep myself in the house) but googled some beginner positions that may relieve anxiety and even 5-10 minutes of trying to hold 3 basic poses relieved me of the jittery/shaking feeling and the heart pounding. Might work for you too? I was actually quite surprised it worked to be honest, but I was desperate at that point!
