I had right shoulder surgery last Friday and recuperating from that. I'm not doing a whole lot during the long days and not sleeping well at night. I've had an ever-growing knot in my stomach since Tuesday and I think it is from anxiety and stress and more likely due to health anxiety. Can't really talk to Mom and Dad (staying with them while I recuperate) as Mom has enough on her plate (her cat had to be put to sleep last Saturday and Dad left that same morning to go on a mission trip to El Salvador). She is just trying to stay as busy as possible to keep her mind on other things so I don't feel like I can burden her any more than she has. I'm not eating as a result of this anxiety knot in my stomach and am just needing some support and advice on how to get back to where I am feeling normal again. CBT doesn't seem to be helping and I've tried my calming ipod music and reading but just can't seem to get rid of this knot of anxiety.
