Yesterday as I was out having lunch with my friend and her son, I started having a anxiety attack. So, I left earlier than expected. I left after we ate. She thought it was due to her, but I explained it wasn't. And so that's good and a relief.

Once I got home, I started to calm down a bit, but much. So, I took a nap. That seemed to help a little. I didn't accomplish much yesterday because of how I was feeling. I am still trying to pinpoint my anxiety from yesterday, but I think it was because of the weather and the fact that my knee was acting up from the cold. Then I went to bed early since I was exhausted from the day.

Today I woke up early and went to church. That was really nice. I went to a new church here in my city. It was very welcoming, and I think I may go back again. It seemed very welcoming and all. A bit on the conservative side with their messages on gay marriage and abortion, but I can get past that. I know I shouldn't settle for just any church since there are many churches out there, but I felt actually more at ease at this than my own home church that I went to when I was younger. There seems to be more things for young adults around my age to do, and that is very important for me in a church. I am not very religious, but more spiritual and do believe in God/Jesus and do need support in this area as well from others. (I very rarely ever talk about this area in my life, so don't worry about rants and raves about this).

Then I went grocery shopping today after I got back from church. Then I went and paid rent for the month. That feels nice to have all of that done. I have just basically vegged this afternoon whether it be reading, watching tv, being on the computer, or taking a short nap which I just woke up from not that long ago.

I am going to go back to reading in a few and or watching tv in a few. I will respond to comments either later on tonight or tomorrow :-)

I think that it's important that you find a church that is proper and comfortable to you. No harm in trying out different churches and seeing how you feel about it. :)

I'm glad that you're feeling better now from the anxiety.

I have the same views on religion as you..I can't seem to find the support around me, just the holy rollers. It's frustrating.

I'm sorry you had an anxiety attack. I struggle with anxiety myself.

Thank you, sweetheart. Its harder than hell sometimes.

I'm so sorry to hear about your anxiety attack..these really always seem to come at the worst possible moments *hugs*
(well not that there was ever a good moment to have an anxiety attack...but you know what I mean!)
Glad to hear you feel so at home at your new church! I personally couldn't overlook their opinions on gay marriage and abortion but to each their own! (I'm not judging you at all, if you feel good there that's awesome!)

Thank you, Tina. *hugs*
At first I was a bit taken back, then I just felt at home and could deal with it a bit better than I did to begin with. I am a pretty easy going person.

I'm so sorry you had an anxiety attack :-/ Those are no fun.

I am similar to you in terms of religion... I am Christian but I haven't found a "home church" yet and I miss it a lot. My spirituality is very important to me though and I am a christ-follower.

Thank you, Katie. I agree, they aren't!

I am as well with how you view religion! ♥

I'm sorry to hear you had an anxiety attack :( They are the worst. I've been having a lot of issues with my anxiety lately and it's so hard to pull myself out of it. I hope you're feeling better! ♡

Thank you. They are not fun at all. They personally suck a lot. I wish anxiety sometimes didn't exist at all, and I agree with you on how you are dealing with it, that's how I am dealing with it sometimes as well.

I am feeling a bit better :-) ♥

I'm sorry about your anxiety attack :-( That must have been so scary for you! I'm glad your friend realised it wasn't due to her at all.

And that's great that you have been able to find a church that you feel 100% comfortable in. I hope it continues to go well for you :-)

Thank you, Rowena. It was, and I am glad that my friend realized it as well. I was worried she wasn't going too.

Thank you, same here :-)

Thank you, Lisa. Some days are better than others with my anxiety. Sometimes I don't know why its caused, and others I do. But thankfully I have a great support system at hand, and can use different coping skills to help out when need be :-)

i'm in the boat of trying to find a new church. i've been trying out new churches, and it can be super hard. being comfortable is so important to me, as church to me can be very intimidating. if you're not super sold on their viewpoints, don't be afraid to try other churches, or even denominations. hope you're successful in finding your church home!
