Hi! I have anxiety caused from a brain injury I suffered 27 years ago. Normal for me is not normal, apparently. I live in constant circles because my memory abilities were damaged. I’m like someone with Alzheimers without the disease.
My tips that work are: Drink
Water (it improves energy); SUNLIGHT and FRESH AIR help relieve some panic attacks; leave BIG notes in BLATANT places for reminders; brush aside the insults of others because they don’t know what I am dealing with inside; put things in perspective – I could have died from my injuries – being poor and ostracized can be overcome; MUSIC/PHOTOS/SCENTS/FOOD aid in memory recall for brief moments.
If you have tips on memory issues, please share!
Practice mindfulness! Ex: Find 5 things you see, 4 things you can feel, 3 things you can hear, 2 things you can smell, 1 thing you can taste.
