Timely topic, Dqueen !!
I'm dealing with high anxiety right now too. I have some (many) small and big family medical and personal issues that, combined with the economy and recent politics events, has me reduced to tears in a flash. I'm trying to 'deal with it' rationally by: Trying not to "awfulize" stuff and trying not to "should myself" (I should be doing this, I should be doing that, and trying to fix everyone's problems).
Seasonal Affective Disorder has also kicked in so its a real treat. I am considering going back on my anti-d . . . but I've enjoyed almost two years w/o the side affects and I'm spoiled. BUT . . . you have to do what you have to do!! Right?
Thanks for starting this topic. I bet there are lots of us in the same boat.
