    I worry about not having anything to worry

    about. It's so silly. I actually create things to worry about. :/

    I feel weak. Like, I can't help my good friend.

    I can't help her. No matter how much I try I can't get to her. I can't help her. I have an instinct. I have to protect the people I love and it tortures me knowing that I have no control over it. All I can do is be there.

    Worrying won't stop the bad things from

    happening. It will just prevent you from enjoying the good stuff. Then why do I worry so much? Most of the stuff I worry about was caused by someone else, but because I care for them I worry about them. How do I stop worrying about others.

    I love my boyfriend,

    but sometimes I feel like I'm doing this because I don't want to be alone. I care for him when he's sick. I appreciate the little things he does and the big things. I do things to surprise him sometimes. When I'm next to him, I feel so much better. I support his dreams and...

    I worry and overthink a lot way too much.

    I end up pushing people away because I worry that they will judge me and I'll end up alone.

    Living Past 22...

    When I was young I just knew that I would die when I was 22. But I didn't. I was surprised when I turned 23. 23 was a very bad year. Very bad. I met with a therapist today for the first time in over 20 years. I told her about dying at 22. It came out that my anxious feelings...

    Recently I've been chanting to myself,

    'I can do whatever I want.' 'I have free will.' 'The decision is mine.' because I worry about doing the right or wrong thing way more often than I should. And when I don't meet these out-there expectations I have a pouty fest, and the event plays over and over again in my head...

    Diabetes Sucks

    My son was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when he was 5. That was one of the worst days of my life. In the beginning, I had to hold him down to give insulin injections. He would fight me like crazy and it would take at least 20 minutes each time. By the end of the ordeal, we...

    I need some advice. So,

    So I know what you're thinking.

    "If he knows why he worries too much, why doesn't he just not worry." Ok that's probably not what you're thinking, but still I worry too much. I have this sadistic mindset of playing out every bad scenario that could happen when a situation seems like it's going to tip. And...

    I am constantly worried about something alllll

    the time. I even worry about people too. It's either ridiculous or a good thing, but I don't know, I think it's a bit too much. I'd rather only worry about people than something totally stupid that I shouldn't even be worried about.

    It really takes a toll on me the way I worry

    about things that haven't happened and most likely never will. I worry that no matter what precautions I take, somehow I will be the one that bad things will happen to. I wish I could just live, be safe and let things ride. Not to be careless but to live and deal with things...
