I am new to this forum.  I am going through one of the worst times in my life.  I have good friends but don't want to burden them with my problems as many of them have enough of their own.
I was diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder!  I have been a worrier all my life.
We are in the process of moving to a new state next week.  I am so afraid that something will happen that will prevent this move.  Last week a  dead tree fell on my house and the buyers who have a contract on it drove by.  The tree has been removed and the minor repairs done and so far all is well.
But now I have an intense fear that there will be another storm and another tree will fall on the house and this time cause even worse damage. And then the contract will be voided.  Perhaps this is irrational but I cannot sleep or concentrate because I am fearing the worst.
I checked all trees around my house and they are all healthy.
I need to move to be with my husband and to get away from my 18 year old daughter who is abusive to me. (She has assaulted me in the past and constantly taunts me). She does not want to move to the new state.  I fear that if this move fails, I will have to continue to put up with the abuse from her indefinitely.  I would rather be dead!!
I would appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks sad

Dear Worn Out,

Welcome to HealingWell.  It sounds like you should have reported your daughters behavior to the authorities a while ago.  No one should ever be abused and her behavior needs to be addressed.  I would move and leave her behind as she is 18 and a grown adult.  If she attacks you again please call the authorities.

Here is a crisis number that may be helpful for you.

Parental Stress Hotline | Help for Parents 800-632-8188

I am so sorry your going throught this anxiety.  Please take care of you.

Hi Wornout,

May I wish you a warm welcome to healingwell and particularly to the A/P forum. You are among people who understand here. Please don't feel that you are a burden. GAD is something that can happen to anyone, and it's certainly not something we ask for!

I can understand your worry about your move. I think moving house is up there in the biggest five life stresses, so don't be too hard on yourself. It is good that you have checked that the other trees are healthy. That is really all you can do for now.

Has the person who diagnosed you with GAD given you any suggestions on support or thoughts on medication? Therapy can be a great tool for learning how to get rid of those constant worries (or at least get better at controlling and understanding them!). I hope you get away from your abusive daughter, you may find your symptoms get better without her around. Please let us know how you are going. You are not alone in this.
