    The last few days have been a struggle,

    I've even been anxious over the smallest things in my day. My body feels out of sorts and I can very barely relax. Hopefully it'll pass.

    Its almost time for my 3 week visit this

    Wednesday. I switched shifts just so I can visit him that evening. I'm so nervous and anxious at the same time. I don't know what to expect? I still am not sure about what to say? I have to be careful with my words.

    I'm never afraid of what the outcome might be.

    .. It's like I'm afraid to do anything ever. I told everyone that I was going to get my driving permit in the morning but I'm too much of a whimp and doubt I'll be able to make myself go.

    I hate being anxious.

    I told him how I feel about the progression of our involvement with each other and he hasn't answered back. I know he read it, and I know he's probably annoyed. He has that right, but it doesn't stop me from being nauseous with anxiety. I wish he'd reply.
