I rock when I’m stressed by it feels more like an urge to release something. This past week I’m rocking quite madly, I’m going through distressing physical symptoms, also have a lot of study pressure and am fighting delusion with all my might, if i rock i keep up with it all, it’s like I’m racing my thoughts and if I’m not rocking I’m jiggling my legs. I don’t think it’s meds but I just want to stop my mum thinks it’s optional but it doesn’t feel that way and she’s either angry or worried that I’m doing it a lot. I have an appointment with my nurse and I often gently rock in sessions but at the moment it’s rather wild more fast and deeper. I’m embarrassed. I was doing it in my art class (which is with people who don’t have mental health issues and no-one apart from the teacher talked to me-I get the impression he must know someone who does it because he talked to me normally which was a relief) and I’ve got pottery in a bit but it won’t be judged there. I just want to hide I want it to stop, but it’s like it releases something.
I know some people on here also mention the rock and I wonder if you have any tips on how to make it less obvious? Or calm it down? It hasn’t been this bad in a while.
I’d appreciate any tips.
I hope your day is letting you cope as best as possible,
