We are trying to change things that can better help each other and it may take some time to do so with your help. kitt I hope you don't mind me quoting you on this but I think this a very good input on your part.
This is where we share our concerns and issues and then help each other work on ways to resolve our problems.
Our minds crave explanations for why we are anxious. We have a strong drive to explain feelings of anxiety. I remember once taking an aspirin, and later feeling very anxious. I made an assumption about what caused my feelings. I didn't try; my mind naturally and automatically came up with a reason why I felt anxious. The anxiety is like a puppy with new teeth that needs something to chew on. The mind searches around to find the most likely thing, the most blatant worry, and latches onto that and starts ruminating about it.
I had been talking to someone about a tense situation, and I assumed our conversation was causing my anxiety.
I found out later the aspirin contained caffeine and the anxiety was artificially-induced. Many times I've solved one problem after another, only to have my mind search around for another worry.

Try to practice ways not to be worrying about why your anxious and remember you are a good person and you do not have to explain your issues to others.
You do have to learn to deal with the anxiety. The members will share with your their advice and please do hear them out.
Take care and stick with us.
I feel that this is very important info on Kitt's part and we all need to help one another out with the skills we learn. Thanks Kitt
