I have a serious anxiety problem. I’m sure I’m not alone. Found out last night that a stressful day was in store for me today.
Thru working the 12 steps, I was able to concentrate on the present moment and didn’t let my fear get the best of me last night. I attended a meeting on In The Rooms last night and decided to let today take care of itself.
Well it worked. Being in the present moment last night and today worked. I survived the day, stayed in the here and now and it’s over. It feels so good to be in control and not let fear rule me again. It wasn’t easy but I did it…and the good news is you can too!
I found them my searching for online support groups. I was initially interested in thr message boards but the groups I follow aren’t that active. It’s great because there’s no pressure to participate. It’s totally up to you to participate or just observe. I sought them out specifically because there are no 12 step groups in my area fot my issue - compulsive debting and shopping/hoarding.
They have all female groups which serve all 12 step fellowships so that is what I mostly go to.
It’s just like a normal meeting where you listen and can share if you like through your computers camera and mic etc or on headphones. Not as worthwhile as normal meetings as you don’t have the physical contact but a good top up or good for when you haven’t got time to go to a physical meeting.
