Hello people, long story short. This february had a nervous burnout that expressed itself with fatigue, adrenaline rushes in head and problems sleeping. All due to impending leaves at work and overall useless fears and stress I permitted myself to experience. I’m saying this because all of my life I’ve been a happy and chill dude and this kinda came out of the bloom. Now I’m basically absolutely fine and my nervous system is top notch. Also managed to develop a stoic approach towards job and superiors and lacked. I’m now really happy and enjoying the gifts of life that I enjoy the most: my girlfriend, nature, films, healthy food, meditation and much other. The weird thing is that from times when I see some things that remind me of what I experienced, the simple thought of it that would pass my mind or recording good memories of the past I get weird body sensations that were never familiar to me before and are very nagging (in relaxed state it’s almost like a mild unconscious faster breathing and when I’m active – tension in head,neck, chest, belly or spine) and also sometimes I fall asleep harder due to startling when drifting away to sleep. My girlfriend has had panick attacks throughout the years and last december she was going through similar thing again due to her work stress but she’s all okay now and is proud of the fact that it has passed and everything. I really don’t get the situation, I simply want to regain my absolute balance and power and would be thankful for any advice.
February you had “a nervous burnout” that included “adrenaline rushes” that brought about troubles sleeping and fatigue. You recovered but at times when you remember the nervous burnout, you “get weird body sensations… almost like a mild unconscious faster breathing”, and when you are active, it is a “tension in head, neck, chest, belly or spine” and sometimes you get startled when drifting into sleep.
I think it is something like this: the big nervous burnout you experienced was like an earthquake, and what you have been experiencing since is a series of aftershocks, mini earthquakes that follow the big earthquake.
If you continue to live your life mindfully, aiming at calm, the aftershocks will lessen and lessen, I am thinking.
