This week marks my third week without a job. The walls are closing in! I had been doing so well and my anxiety was mostly gone before this happened. It is slowly creeping back since I am out of work. I belong to an organization where I am recording secretary and have to recite the minutes before many people each month and I was extremely nervous last night. I had been doing fine. So now I am afraid to do it the next time. This is how GAD works. If I give in to it, it will only escalate, so I am determined to keep doing it no matter what. Perhaps things will get better by the next time I have to do this. I discussed this with my husband and he said that he couldn't believe how silly I am. How I envy him, since he has never experienced this kind of anxiety in his life. I know that you guys understand and it feels good to be able to vent. I think I need your encouragement once again.
