I have battled and overcome years of this. controlled my life. OCD, racing heart and thoughts. breathing into a paper bag is useful in emergencies. I was prescribed beta blockers and anti anxiety meds but ditched them and worked on CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) - lot's of info online and books at library. I also take magnesium supplement daily (refer above post) and feel this helps too. And vit b for nervous tension. it seems I’ve just slowly overcome it. it take a while and patience. good luck

RE: Overwhelmed, exhausted, doing all I can to hold love, truth and faith
Thank you 'TheCaptain' - quite insightful. I do feel like I've overcome many of the traits of my born make up/tendencies for the better and I'm still working on a lot of stuff and feeling better for it. The challenges and lessons feel like they are just more and greater as a consequence though. Here’s hoping it settles down soon xx
Overwhelmed, exhausted, doing all I can to hold love, truth and faith
34 years old (born 10th Nov '76) yet have been through so much. The type and scale of the things that have been impacting me (most recently internationally significant natural disasters, off the back of long term relationship break down, friends and animals dying, business dissolving, lies and cheating).
I operate with an open heart and have been told (friends and psychic readings) I’ve given too much and my power away. I’m trying to learn to put myself first but feel overwhelmed and exhausted by life and all that has happened to me. From early years and then an avalanche the last few years. Nearly broke me but I'm strong. I've carried on. I don't know how but I’ve looked for lessons in everything and for the last few years focusing on spirituality for guidance and reassurance but try and dedicate myself to light and truth (and I do this as wholeheartedly and meaningfully as I can), I am still stumbling and confronting terrible luck and hardships – constant battles and confusion and massive let downs and hurts in love, business etc after not such a great childhood and destructive teenage years (own confusion and lack of sense of worth and security etc that I have since worked on myself).
My dreams of a partner and family seam farther and farther away each day as I reflect that life appears to be passing me by. I’m continually trying to do the right thing and move forward in an enlightened way regardless, and even amidst so much pain and loss I can feel inspired by nature and to help others and the world. I still love, smile and am gracious and grateful for so much but my tank is past empty. I’m starting to question the point in it all? Is there another side to what feels like constant struggle? No matter how positively I’ve looked at it and proactively I try to approach it I’m at the point where I wonder if it’s all a joke on me.
I want to have faith and stimulate others faith in the world but am struggling with my own and after overcoming what I feel is a lot compared to many lives. Yet, I have so much more to give and that I want to give. Is it me? am I blocking the flow in some way? I feel desperate for some love and light in my life, for myself (sounds selfish I'm sure!), would really be nice. I’m starving yet intent on wanting to share my last bit of bread so to speak. I feel guilty when I think of the pain and lack some people experience and that I have relatively nothing to get down about. I just don’t feel like I ‘fit’ in the world the way it is. Something likes that. Any insight? Thoughts or feelings from you intuitives that might read this? Just a glimmer of light, to know one day life might make sense and feel ‘easy’ would be so great. I don’t know anyone else that has been through and contemplates quite the way I do/am. Maybe there’s a reason for all this? Either way, I’m feeling pretty lost and dissolutioned and not sure how much more I can take without some sort of a break
