That's just absolutely brilliant about your ROM!!!!! Do you think you might have got"there"? I'm thinking 123° for me would be enough to call it there.

So sorry about your flare up and anxiety - not nice at all!

123 is definitely 'there' enough for me. I didn't think I would get there though, it just goes to show you mustn't ever give up hope of improvement. It's a novelty to be able to walk up stairs one foot over the other, and although it's painful, I'm doing it :yahoo:

Tabbycat I am so very pleased for you 123 is fantastic. Not sure if you have tried this for your anxiety.
Think about
5 things you can see
5 things you hear
5 things you smell
5 things you feel (physically)
4 things you see
4 things you hear
..........
Untill you get to 1.
It's called grounding it might help you xx

Thank you girls, if you don't want to do 5 of each thing then start at 5 then 4 then 3 etc, it's a good idea to practice when your not having a bad moment

@Dawni, that makes sense. When it a bad mood it's hard to think of good things. It would probably help to right down the things when we are happy and then say them when down. As the song says, "Count Your Blessings"!

Hello! Hoping today is a good one for you. I've got orders to cwtch![emoji1]

I just wanted to thank you and @Dawni for the 54321 anxiety tool. I've used it multiple times over the last few days and find awesome results in nipping the anxiety/worry spiral in the bud.

Anxiety is such a terrible thing...music also works for me! But I will try this also, it seems like a good technique!
