Tick Tock..

I have recently become aware of a horrible little anxiety trait that has started to rule my life. I cannot complete even the smallest of tasks without putting a time limit on it or being aware of the time. Now, this is a normal thing for people getting up, going to work etc etc and when in relation to a routine, not really a bad thing. However, I have started timing drinking my tea, having a bath, everything.
"So if this takes me 15 minutes then I have 3 and a half hours until I have to do that so I can do this for an hour and then.." and so on and so on.
It is making more anxious than ever and really starting to exhaust me. I know I said earlier this week that I am trying to draw the positives from anxiety ie. being more aware. But being hyper-sensitive the entire time you are awake is beyond draining. I am having heart palpatations even writing this post because the bath is filling slowly and I don't know how long it will all take. Someone please help me!!

Oh, a positive bit of inspiration I have just found; these absolutely gorgeous photos, they give me butterflies and make me kinda want to cry they are that beautiful.



  1. I used to suffer from this time anxiety, its kind of an obsession and it took a while to gain control of it. I generally think that going to see someone would really help. Your GP can refer you to someone. You dont want this to rule you. Anxiety is so hard, your not alone. xo

    1. Oh my gosh, did you?! It's so difficult and frustrating!! Thank you so much. I'm having Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at the moment so I'm hoping she can help me with this as well as other things.
