I understand, and i guarentee other members will also. anxiety can be so overwhelming and all consuming- it really traps you sometimes. are you seeing a counsellor/therapist/Pdoc about any of this?
Keeping you in my prayers, keep us posted on how you are, but hang in there, we are here for you always.

Today was not one of my better days but I have picked myself up and made some phone calls and am taking the bull by the horns to get back on track.
Big Sis/Lyn is my dearest friend and like a sister to me, we talk daily and that helps so much. I would really like to see you have a positive friend in your life. I am sorry your girlfriend is having a hard time but please remember you must take care of you first or you will not be able to help others.
I am proud of you for being able to come here and open up to us.
If you can learn to stay present in the moment then you can rapidly and gracefully change your life for the better! Our personal power is accessed in the present. We are creating our futures right this very second through the thoughts and energy that we are sending out. What future are you creating for yourself if your thoughts are filled with anxiety, anger, and fear? What would your future look like if you could send out love, joy and prosperity?
Practice staying present today. Take deep breaths often. Really feel what you are doing. When you are driving in the car really focus on what you are doing, seeing and hearing. Approach your work with focus and clarity. When you are with a loved one really listen to what they are saying to you. "Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
Practice staying in the moment, when I do not the "stinkin thinkin" thoughts sneak in and I start worrying about yesterday and tomorrow.
Stay in the Moment my friend
