Your kids are already going back to school? Wow! My son doesn't go back til August 28th!

Anyway, don't be nervous. I too hated the idea of having to pick him up from school last year, but I just forced myself through it, and in the end, was fine. Do you have some sort of nerve pill you can take before you go? If not, there is the usual breathing exercises that people do to help with anxiety.

Just realax, it will be fine!

Best of luck to you!

I am sorry your feeling this way.  I believe that you are exhibiting signs of anticipatory anxiety.

This natural, instinctual response to threat works against you. When you stay on guard as you approach events, you increase your tension and become more vulnerable to a panic attack. When you warn yourself to stay on guard in the midst of panic, you secrete even greater amounts of adrenaline into your bloodstream, causing more intense symptoms. You can't remain anxiously on guard and simultaneously learn to control panic.

Try to stay in the moment and not worry about the future or the what ifs. I know that your feelings are very real and it takes a lot of hard work and practice to let go of the "worrying". I bleieve in you and you have my support and understanding. yeah
