    The reason I need to calm down so much is because last year I went through a period where OH was sick and we were waiting for a diagnosis, we were waiting for our apartment to be finished, work was nuts, the puppies were coming.... I ended up so insanely stressed out that I ended up having anxiety attacks (complete with chest pains!) and a headache that lasted for 3 months (every day).

    So I'd reallly like to avoid that this year
    Im sorry to hear about all your stresses I hope your OH is well now.

    Are you open to taking herbal help? Valerium may help, it won't numb you like actual Valium will. Takes a while to build up in system but It does have a calming effect.

    Thanks, he's not better but at least we know what we're dealing with

    I used to have accupuncture and that worked wonders but it started getting financially draining.

    I've heard alot of people swear by 'Rescue Remedy", it's made by Bach Flower Remedies. There is lots of stuff about it on Google.

    Good luck

    I have the spray on your tongue stuff. Sorry Tkay, but I think it's rubbish. But it could work for you Bella!

    Do you have extra health cover? I do, and it is only approx. 15 week, yet we have gone through a lot of acupuncture and physio for son in last 12 months it is unbelievable. We could not have afforded it at all without the extras cover. The first month of therapy alone probably paid for the entire year of cover!

A lot of people have trouble with static meditation, but moving meditation seems to work well.
    Thumbs up from me Tai chi is great.

    yeah i know Cleasanta... i hated cleaning glass up at work.. like i had a backpacker drop a try of pint glasses.. all of them smashed..

    plates are easier to clean up..

    or another good one is playing with Boss, like throw his tennis ball far as i can... he brings it back and i do it again..

    hmmmmm, my way would not work for you, I wait till the cows are near the house and then scream my head off and watch them stampede, soooo fulfilling. I have not done that since I have had Pretty or the pups though as I figured it could scar them for life. I at times sit in a comfy chair, deep breath and visualise calmly how I wish whatever it is ahead will go.
    I also find music is a great stress reliever, what ever fits my mood at the time.
    Hugging a dog, cat or having my birds out on me works as well.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
