Thanks everyone! You all mean so much to me!!!
Harry, I am trying to "float thru" the anxiety, but how does one manage to NOT monitor their body? If you read this, please advise!
Yes all, my mom doesn't understand really as much as she thinks she does! Today, she realized that she'd accidentally wrote out checks for more than she had in the bank and was fretting like crazy! She kept piping up with phrases of worry and got teary. She says, "We''ll have to get cash off the credit card!" and "Do you think the account will be okay until we can do that?", etc...... I told her not to worry that it would be alright, we'd get it taken care of, and so on. And we did. She's still aggravated at herself, but feels better now. Anyway, the way she was freaking out made me think about
how if she had to deal with anxiety disorder, she'd REALLY know what fear and feelings of being overwhelmed are! I don't think she'd be able to hack it as well as I do (which in the past she has actually admitted!)
I'll be glad when the book by Claire Weekes gets here as so many with AD have said great things about
Love, Hugs, and Kisses to ALL!!!
