Janice and Shelly here
we loved the podcast and will continue to listen.
Shelly speaking: oh it’s funny to me that for Janice the notice is very clear because it’s all physical and for me the notice is the most difficult Because mine are obsessive thinking or rehearsing something in my head so it takes me longer to recognize it and then I can act on that and start my breathing or meditation.
Janice speaking:Just so I can share I am huge huge with anxiety I have gone nights without sleeping nights where I can’t turn lights off nights where I can’t be alone…For me I feel that menopause was a huge trigger to the starting of my anxiety-As I started menopause all the above symptoms happened…But I have since learned what my triggers are and how to deal Wes the episodes.My notice is mostly all physical..Then I breathe and let all those symptoms happen for however long they need to. Then I allow everything just to take it’s course for however long it needs to-but I know in the back of my head that this is short ..it is not life-threatening and it will end…
We love you and will continue to listen as a couple
