Now the purpose of this blog post. While I will talk about something that I think I’ve realised about my own anxiety. This post is, (I hope) a informed post about listening to your bodies. Which includes listening to your mind.
Our bodies are well equipped to let us know when something is “off”.
Over the last few months, I have experienced really odd flushes. I wouldn’t call them hot flushes, but they’re more like shaky flushes. Almost like when, I assume, your blood levels go low. However, when I’ve been tested, I haven’t got anything wrong. I decided to start taking note of when I get these shakes. I started to noticed that I get them when I’m getting really annoyed or fed up. It can even be something as simple as, I’m clearly not listening or am listening, but have to pay attention to something (haha), but the person whose talking to me, expects my full attention. It can be something literally that simple.
So I have started to think that it’s probably got more to do with my anxiety tablets, than anything else. As a kind of side effect, I guess you might call it.
I believe when my brain starts to get annoyed, it must be increasing something in my brain and the tablets are sending out weird signals. My brain on the anxiety tablet handles when I become annoyed, by making me feel like I’m going to faint.
I didn’t want to look it up on Google, as you all know what can happen then!
I could only really find though really, how anxiety can make you feel dizzy…which duh…There was a couple of things that did talk about it being a side affect.
The point of this?
When you have a illness, whether it be physically or mental. Yes, even spiritual.
We tend to listen to the Doctors, Nurses, family etc. And ignore what we think is going on. We just pass things off. Don’t do this. Listen to your body, your gut, your mind.
My “theory” is that our body are the best judges of what our body is going through. I know we tend to brush these things off, but do not. Take notes, if you must. Day, time and what you felt.
