Good Morning, I too have anxiety and it feels to me like you are experiencing anticipatory anxiety.
Anticipatory anxiety is where a person experiences increased levels of anxiety by thinking about an event or situation in the future. The worries you experience specifically focus on what you think might happen, often with catastrophic predictions about the event.
To begin treating anticipatory anxiety, we must be able to admit that we cannot predict the future. Any scenario we are able to imagine is nothing more than speculation and fabrication.
Anxiety can increase your physical sx and soon you are on a visious circle of "what if?" thinking. Jump off of that merry-go-round and know you will be able to deal with whatever comes your way.
Coming here and talking with the members of the forum is a great way to decrease your anxiety and gain wisdom from the members who have GERD.
