Having a bad night. Help me out. Japan 388 posts
17th Apr '13

I'm having a bad night with my anxiety and I can't find my medicine. I have to be up in three hours.



What are some nice, happy, calming things to think about to fall asleep to?



Please help me out mamas.

Think about the things that make you happy. What makes you happy?

Picture you and your son playing in the snow?

I have anxiety too. What kind of medicine do you take for it?

Quoting Naley Scott:" Diazapam. When I go back to the doctor I'm going to ask about something I can take everyday to keep it at bay and something to take as needed."


Is that Xanax? If so that's what I took back in like August. I only took it for like a month and then never got it re-filled. Now that I'm pregnant, I don't take anything but I was also on a anti-depressant, Zoloft. Maybe they can put you on that and the Xanax?

Try picturing a beach scene. Look for seashells, hermit crabs, try counting the sand pieces, count the waves. Thats what I use to do with my anxiety and it was hard for me to calm down. Little minor details.
