For me I call my doctor I do things that relax me dance exercise listen to music. If it gets worse please visit a doctor.
I get the doomsday feeling a lot. For me, it's either a sign of depression or it happens when there are big changes in my life. I don't know how to prevent depression really. But what I do try to do is cling to happy for dear life. I do as many relaxing, enjoyable things as I can do. (for me, it's drink tea, paint my nails, cook my favorite meal) It doesn't necessarily prevent the depression, but it does tend to dampen it.
Thanks, I will give these things a try. Tea is a calmer for me too :-)
I force myself to Do something that requires no thought. I find searching for relief or trying to understand WHY, makes it worse. My family knows not to ask what's wrong more than once. If I don't have a specific answer, they know to leave me alone. Swimming helps me a lot, I think mindless physical exercise helps my brain chemistry mellow out, to at least tolerable.
Thanks to all of you for the many good suggestions. I am still having trouble getting motivated. I am gonna try to go outside (with my tea and music) and do some gardening. Exercise will be good I think.
Well, it just started to rain, a lot. Guess the gardening will have to wait.
Here is where I posted the marathon of a comment. If it's lost, at least
it relieved some of the severe mania I had. It think the fast tapering I'm
doing is effecting the BP. Not sure. Maybe the painkillers were masking
it and I'm now more aware of its severity.
