Always Have

Even as a child I worried about everything.  My mother couldn't understand it. 

Now, as an adult, I think I worry less, but maybe a lot of it is just unvocalized.  Sometimes when I don't think I'm worrying, I really am.  I get stomach aches, headaches I have even broken out in hives over worrying.  Jeez, and it's usually for nothing.  I always end up OK, on whatever was worrying me.  I don't know where it comes from.

It's trait anxiety. It can be part of shyness too and it's normal. It's not healthy to say that you "have to stop". It's something that goes away when unnoticed.

A bad habit? I never thought of it that way before. But, how do you stop it?


Ha! don't worry about being worried! Good advice.

Worrying will never solve any thing. Its just a bad habbit. My Grandmother was the same way.

Something I've always struggled with too.....I thought I was learning to control it, now in present circumstances I'm not so sure. Perhaps its a good idea not to worry about being worried... :-S
