In the afternoons, I try and go for a walk, it doesn’t matter where just as long as I am out for about half an hour.
The main reason for this, is while I am getting Monkey to school and back again and doing alright with it. I have to do this, I have to take him to school and I have to pick him up again, so what happens with my anxiety if I do something I don’t have to, like going for a walk for half an hour.
Last week, I was still finding my legs and my anxiety hit hard on Friday, so I skipped it.
Today I had to go a bit earlier and it interfered with my routine, but still I got outside and realised I had done that bit with no problem and then it started.
Did I turn off the kitchen tap?
Did I shut the fridge?
Did I shut the front door?
Are the cats going to be ok?
Did I leave the balcony door open?
Did I leave everyone with water?
Did I, Did I, Did I
After 15 minutes I cut it short and went home to check everything. Of course everything was fine, so no physically symptons, but my brain really upped the anti to compesate for that
