Ok first off I have anxiety sometimes I go months and I'm ok but when it hits me it's like a ton of bricks. Now for some reason today I had a bad day with my 5 year old and on top of that I had to attend a wake today which I never go to cause I'm not good with thoes things they freak me out. But now that my day is over with I'm actually sitting on the couch pretty relaxed and now I have a bad headache and my neck and face are hot to the tuch so is that just another symptom of anxiety or am I over thinking it. I take Xanax as needed which I don't take very often I don't like taking any pills.

It definitely sounds like your already existing anxiety, coupled together with the uncomfortable feelings that attending the wake brought on has left you symptomatic.

Use your coping skills to help you decompress, and I am sure you'll be feeling better tomorrow.:)
