I haven't been here for awhile - miss you guys.
 
My issue is that my savings is just about drained.  I am grateful and thankful to have friends who
plan to convert their garage into a studio for me and my cats in exchange for low rent and free
pet-sitting - it's just that I've been trying to find a job for over a year now and have had no
success - I'm very scared and highly anxious/panicky.  My doc upped my Klonapin to 3mg/day
on top of the Lexapro and Trazodone I take, but each time I transfer money from my savings
to checking and realize I have about 2 months left worth of money, I feel that panicky feeling
for days.  My stomach in knots, heart beating faster - the Klonapin is probably helping, but it
doesn't stop the knots and fear.  I'm a 23-year veteran Legal Secretary and have been applying
everywhere, Wal-Mart, Frito-Lay truck driver, anything and just nothing has come up yet.
 
I've been keeping my faith in God, just feel like that's a hypocritical statement since I get this
high anxiety/panic now.  I have to know everything's going to come together the way it is
supposed to.
 
Just kind of needed to express my feelings of panic, fear and anxiety about what's been going
on with me for the past couple of months.  I do feel blessed every day that I still have shelter,
food and clothing for me and my cats (excluding the clothing for the cats - they have their own
fur coats!!)  heh
 
Thanks for listening.  It's been a long time.

Here, Kitty,

I'm so glad so see you posting, but I'm sorry you are going through such an uncertain time. Uncertainty has got to be a sure trigger for anybody's anxiety. You're so strong in holding on to hope and gratitude for the things you do have: for trying to trade positive thoughts for the negative fears. What a role model for all of us!

I surely hope this holiday season brings you what you want and need: a job that will allow you to feel secure and valued.

Hugs,
percycat

Thanks so much Percycat! Without my grateful journal, I would be totally lost!

Blessings to you and wishing you a year where every day is filled with hope, love, happiness and fun!

Nice to meet you Kitty :)

I'm sorry you are having a hard time. Maybe you were led back here to use some of the great resources available. Having support from your HW family is just what you need right now. I wish you the best of luck and you are in my prayers.

Please smile and Happy Holidays!!! :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace and Comfort!!!
Your Bro,

Here Kitty,

Hello and bless you. I know how tough things are for all and I am so glad to hear your friends are going to help you out.

I know as times get tough we are going to have more people with anxiety rising.  sad

For right now at this time let's us all take a day off from worries and stay in the moment of Christmas. I will pray for everyone at Christmas Mass and then we can get back to how to solve our issues with the enconomy. 

I wish you peace and happiness.

Kitt

Boy, who needs a therapist when I can come here to a group of wise, compassionate and wonderful beings!

I feel much better this morning and want to wish EVERYone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Blessed Kwaanza and
the others I'm forgetting out of ignorance of not knowing.

Much love and blessings on this day that we celebrate the birth of Jesus and every day!

Hugsies,

Julie O'

Julie,

I am glad we were of some help.  Today is our day to just be, love and enjoy. Today is a day to thank our "god" .

A Christmas Blessing

During this Christmas season,
May you be blessed
With the spirit of the season,
    which is peace,
The gladness of the season,
    which is hope,
And the heart of the season,
    which is love

 

Gentle Hugs
Kitt

Hey Kitty lets not worry about tomorrow, lets focus on living for today. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and lay your worries at the Lord's feet, he will help you carry the burden.
