i am trying to stop myself from biting my nails. it is not bleeding yet but if i won't stop it will be bleeding. i am holdings hands to keep it away from my mouth- my teeth. i am also trying to keep on mylotting- posting discussions and responding to discussions so that i can divert my attention. also got myself another tinned peach slices and a peppermint tea so that i can divert my attention to food, drink and mylot. so far it is working. i am really trying my best to calm myself whenever i get anxiety attack. i am not taking any medication or pills. i just know that i am having anxiety when i consciously biting my fingernails and sometimes unconsciously couldn't stop until i get my fingers bleeding then it'll be a bit sore and painful. my finances has a lot of things to do with my anxiety. money. money. money. i struggle to manage my money. oh well. who doesn't? also thinking and worrying about people. well, a person. me: lying to myself. how's everybody doing?

@therealmaryyy well the cold without snow is boring not so much depressing BUT when sun shines on wet grass and concrete with not so much as a smidgeon of icy flakes, there is no visual appeal being made so the holiday kind of looses its magickal shine

If you're unable to cope up with your anxiety problem on your own, I would advice you to seek help from a counselor. He/She will guide you manage anxiety and might also help you pave a way to manage your resources in a careful fashion.

@therealmaryyy But before it begins to hamper with your daily functioning you need to take action.
