My anxiety is mostly under control at this point. Usually, the worst I get is a day where I worry excessively.

Last night I drank a bunch at a neighbour's BBQ and watched World War Z before going to bed. I have no idea, but my guess is that didn't help...

OVERWHELMING sense of doom and dread that I just couldn't shake. It was awful. I felt like the world was crumbling around me and that I just can't bear the world I live in (not in a suicidal sense, more in a "omg I can't handle this" sense).

I have a perfectly good, great life right now. I'm annoyed and frustrated that I felt this way. I used to have crippling attacks like that regularly, but I've worked HARD and made many positive changes to solve it. Now I'm debating some therapy to re-balance myself.

Or a weighted blanket, this thread is convincing me more and more. :P

*Shrugs* I just have a lot to say & am very opinionated, that doesn't make me a "me me me" person. No more then anyone else who vents on this thread ... which is what it is for ... venting.

I can assure you that I am not a "me, me, me," person ... LOL, if I was I wouldn't hate going out in public & have so much anxiety about it.

Also, I thought this was a venting thread, where posters share their vents. So in a way isn't ANYONE who vents on here having a "me me me" moment? don't they too, on some level want people to see their posts & reply to it? You know this is true, so why single me out simply because you do not like me? IMHO that sais more about you than me.
Actually, people have constantly told you they DON'T want you replying to them and making their vent about you. So no, they don't want people to respond all the time. They.. Want a pplaceto get something off their chest. like this thread was made for.

Based on the name, weighted blanket, I guessed it was a blanket that was heavy. Duh. I guess I meant to ask what is it for? Just a comfort thing? I could see really liking one.

They are most often used with sensory conditions. You could call it pressure therapy I think. The weight (pressure) is comforting and relieves anxiety, stress, or just what can be described as restlessness. One way they can be used is for children to help them relieve their anxiety when other ways to relieve the anxiety wouldn't be appropriate. Like for example a child who has ADHD, jumping up and running around for a few minutes is a way to release that stress, energy, anxiety, however you would like to call it. However in a traditional school setting (and others as well) this may not always be appropriate. Instead they can use a weighted blanket, vest, or lap mat and it will help accomplish the same or similar.

Lovebugs.

This is a public forum, if someone posts publicly, they cannot control who sees it or who replies to it. Not me or anyone else.
