Everything in my life is going great right now. So I don’t understand why I am so incredibly stressed every day when I get home from work. I do have a very high stress fast paced job. Probably about as high stress as a job gets. I cannot turn off that nervous energy when I get home it just keeps going. The only thing that seems to stop it is alcohol or Ativan and I don’t want to become dependent on either.
I have tried everything else, short of exercise as I have a knee injury though once that recovers I do intend to try that as well. I try snuggling with my boyfriend, watching silly fun shows I like, reading, playing videogames, showering, playing with dogs, watching asmr, spending time with family, listening to music, i mean i have tried it all. Nothing gets rid of this horrible tension in me except alcohol or ativan. I don’t know what to do.
