I woke up this morning with a wave of bad anxiety. It happened as soon as I got up and out of bed. All of the stress of the week and other things going on in life hit me really hard. I seem to manage things as well as I possibly can day-to-day but for some reason everything felt like it came crashing down on me this morning. I couldn't shake it and couldn't find a place for myself. I didn't know what to do or where to turn. Nothing felt right. I couldn't meditate, I couldn't go for a walk, I didn't even want to talk to anyone about it. It was really strange. As the day progressed things got a bit better and the only reason why is because I started working through what was wrong and went through each thing one at a time. Then I was finally able to go for a walk, get some fresh air and now I feel better. Not 100% but better. Boy oh boy, this was a tough one to shake but I'm glad that I did.

I totally get you. There are some mornings where I wake up and feel great and other times I feel sooooo irritated. I have tried to figure out what is different on those irritated days but I just can't seem to get it.
