I struggle with a contact dizziness, floating sensation that is there 24/7. It has come and gone since 2009. The longest time I had it was for about 5 months straight. It would get me into a major anxiety state when it would come. I had all kinds of tests done in past with normal results and a neurologist diagnosed me with anxiety disorder so I know it's psychosomatic. I did meditation to get me through but it would takes months. It came back on July 4th and it threw me into a tizzy again but then I said to myself that I am going to handle this differently this time. I am having a hard time understands how to implement accepting vs distraction. I feel that I have been handling this better than I ever have but I am not sure if it's right. I've been doing everything that I want to do and not letting this change the way I live. I have been doing my best to not focus on it and to put my focus on my children and my life. I have been trying to be around people. For example, this weekend I went to a party and it felt great to be in conversation and it helps me to not think about how I'm feeling. When I am distracted it feels good because I'm not focused on my symptoms but when I think about how I feel I do feel down because I don't want to feel this way. Let's face it. I would much rather feel the way I did before this came back. I read some therapist posts that said you must accept and not care whether the symptoms are there are not. I have been able to do that sometimes. Especially when I'm focused on other things. I feels good being distracted from it but I can't help but feel like "man this sucks" when I'm not distracted. For example, this weekend I have a convention and I am looking forward to it because I know I will be distracted and not so focused on how I feel. I have never been able to do this in the past. I would normally be very anxious about going and just want to stay home because of how I feel. In the past I would be so scared and I wouldn't sleep or eat well because I was so anxious about feeling this way. This time I am living my life as usual and not letting it stop me from living my life. Sleeping and eating well except for the first few days. But I have been keeping myself busy so I'm not focused on it so much. Am in handing this right? I don't know if I am accepting or not. i can't say that I am happy or that I don't give a crap about it. I'm just doing my best to not let it bother me as much and not focus on it by staying as distracted as I can. Is this running away or accepting? Pleas help! Thank you.
