    Feeling on edge throughout the day?

    Does anyone else get this with they're anxiety or panic attacks? Like feeling on the edge for hours or like you can't really calm down? What helps you when you feel like that? My anxiety seems to flare up some in the winter, I'm guessing it's the lack of sun and maybe lack of exercise.

    I get like this a lot actually. What seems to help me is to make sure I drink enough fluids, warm bath, breathing exercises, and if those don't remedy it, to take my anxiety medicine. Today has been one of those days. I haven't been able to get out of bed and very tearful from anxiety. A lot of people get anxious/ depressed in the winter. Have they checked your Vim D levels? Low Vim D can cause anxiety to increase.

    I think we get on edge as if expecting something bad to happen. Something bad might have happened before when you felt the same way. So this time it is like you have your guard up, ready, but still expecting something bad to happen. I simply like to find things to do. So I have no time to think. The worst thing you can do is just sit there. Even if it is something small, do something. Take you mind off of things.

    I feel this way when my phone rings. Like it’s always someone calling to tell me something bad

    So I just don’t answer the phone

    This is a great thread and great question!
    I do feel on edge (that’s exactly what I feel like) on my day’s off from work. I won’t allow myself to sleep in, have to be up at 6 and getting dressed and busy.
    I think I have a deep seeded fear of falling back into a dark depression. I’ll do whatever it takes to never fall into that abyss ever again.
    Now it has a name.
    Anxiety.

    Yes I always feel on edge and even more so after a panic attack .. I deal with Generalized Anxiety Disorder so mine is constant just different levels throughout the day..
    I use coping skills best I can like distracting myself - movies, music and keep my mind busy , my hands busy.
