    Hi Anxiety

    I am anxious also and I am a senior who has lived with it for years. Medication gives me side effects. Just keep busy and enjoy life the best you can.

    BLEHAKHSKSDKK. Yes. That sums it up quite

    nicely. :) Anyway, these annoying anxiety issues are just getting in the way of everything. My therapist said I can't criticize myself for it and just to do baby steps. Apparently I'm pressuring myself more than I thought which I guess makes sense because I feel like I'm so...

    The thing that makes me the most anxious is

    being late to work. I am always late at least once a week for some reason. Today, the bus was late. If I had a car I feel as though many if my anxiety problems would diminish but I am anxious about getting my license and nervous about the driving test.

    Lying Down On The EP Couch.

    I've been doing this almost all of my life, so I really don't even notice it, anymore. It's just apart of me. When someone tells me to stop worrying or not to worry, I wanna kick them across the planet. If it were that easy, would I be consumed by anxiety? Most certainly not...
