Fear
    #898936 - 09/22/02 11:02 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Last night I ran into a social situation that yanked some old fear and anxiety out from the back of my head. A feeling I hadnt felt in awhile. I used to have extreme social anxiety.
I don't mean I was actually 'scared', but I was unable to think straight and just battered with anxiety, in which I was unable to relax.

Anyways, I did make myself relax, and chilled out and rolled up a joint. Then I began thinking how 'real' those nervous feelings had felt. Like i was directly confronted with a part of me maybe I had choosen to forget. It was like a learning experience, a challenge.

But I was feeling weird for the rest of the night, even after i left the apartment... all my comfort zones were blown.

i feel like i may have overcome something i had never even attempted before.


do you guys feel like you learn the most about yourself when your shaken up like this?

A similar thing happened to me last night....weird.

I felt "shaken up", or discombobulated... but it also felt like I had overcome it, and survived, and that made it worth it somehow. *shrugs*

it made me feel more alive, and down to earh at the same time.. accepting what was out in front of me, and not being afraid of it.

in the past ive escaped situations like these by turning to illusions of superiority (enlightenment) which only led to more and more confusion. in essence just lying to yourself to make yourself feel better.

Talking about overcoming anxieties...for the past couple of weeks i've been able to smoke mj without going into hyper space. I don't know what happened, but it's so much better now. Maybe my mind has just become more calm, but I don't know how.

Yeah I know exactly what you mean...

Alot of times when I'm high around certain people, it seems like I retract into myself, getting lost in my own thoughts... even when someone asks me a question I can barely acknowledge them.

How you felt that night is how I feel almost everyday, all day.  I can't and won't smoke pot anymore because it makes me feel like I'm going insane.  I don't let people get close to me, because all they do is fuck with my head, which I seriosuly need to set straight.  I know that sounds like I've got this horrible defensiveness issue, and I very may well have one, but time and time again I've let my walls down to people who decided they'de get a kick out building me up and tearing me back down.

Somedays it seems as if the entire world is against me, like I'm really not supposed to be here.  I think I spent a good deal of my childhood in denial of how I felt about things, and denial of all the shit that was happening around me. 

Now if my fucking head would just slow the FUCK down.

Seriously, anyone have any advice on how to slow a racing brain?  My brain has been racing for too long, and I'm having trouble keeping a train of thought going.  It's like my brain has background noise that I want to shut the hell off... :crazy:

Valiums are wonderful things, but 45 minutes later I feel just as nuts as before I ate them.

Sex is great too but afterwards I feel just as low and just as crazy...

Same thing with getting drunk, eating xanax, beans.. anything.

I'm just so tired of everything...

i don't think it is.

There are those who don't fear.

Fear is a sign of intelectual weakness.

without the emotion of fear our species and others wouldn't exist.
forcing yourself to overcome natural emotional states isn't a sign of intellectual "strength", or intellectual anything.
it's emotional.

I know what you mean... most people I know say that they can easily fall asleep when they are high, but for me, sleep is impossible, because my mind races so fast, I often feel like I'm going to "explode"...
Quote:

Sex is good if with the right person; try taking a bath or going in a pool, the free-floating sensations are very relaxing. (I avoid showers when high because the pelting of the water usually overwhelms my senses).

Also, try and hang around people you are very comforatble with... I've found that being high by myself or in large crowds is very different than being around one close friend who I'm totally comforatble being around...

Hope some of this helps.  :smile:
