@sears It's okay to not feel comfortable with meditation. Sometimes it takes time to get your mind accustomed to a new way of "just being". There are many forms of meditation. Even simply walking quietly and mindfully can be considered meditation. Good for you for trying again in the near future! I would like to hear what you decide to do and how it all works out for you!

I used to meditate successfully for years to help with anxiety/ocd.. I agree, it can change your life. I remember once describing it to other ppl like I felt like I was always on vacation.. that feeling you get right before you have your breakfast the morning of your vacation flight to Jamaica. Lol.. meditation for me slowed things down.. I felt as thought I could see things coming at me in slow motion and had the time to react appropriately. I miss that feeling. If I sit and meditate now, after a few days I get irritable and short fused.. it’s weird.. tried 2-3 times and this always happens.. something needs to come out I guess.. my favourite was the bodyscan.. for 30mins.. loved it..
