I had some medication changes last week that wreaked havoc on the chemical system in my body.

I experienced tremors, diarrhea and nausea and I couldn’t keep food down. And I was uneasy.

I decided that those feelings were called anxiety until I spoke to a very wise coach, thank you, Renee, and she said, “name everything individually.”

So, I started to name everything individually and say things like “okay, there’s a tremor”, “okay, this is nausea”, “whoops, I need to go to the bathroom.”

And that didn’t mean that my brain wasn’t still trying to make me crazy with thoughts that are not true.

It did mean that I got space to breathe.

I gave myself grace.

And then I did something else; I used my dictation app, and I recorded an affirmation for myself. That affirmation is in my voice from my heart from the mature me to the me that’s afraid.

But afraid of what?

I am concocting lots of “things” that are all untrue.

We cannot believe our thoughts.

Thoughts are not facts. 

May I suggest that you use this tool as well. Let me know how it goes.

Always on your side,
