I had planned on going to Outback today for lunch. I decided to wait until the week sometime so I can go to The Cheesecake Factory. There is no way Iím going to the mall on the weekend. Especially this weekend. I went to Best Buy because I am looking for a digital food scale. The store was packed and I thought a couple teenage boys gave me a weird look. I am female but I donít look too much different from a teenage boy, but I just got very uncomfortable. Also there was a ton of security there wearing full security suits with all kinds of stuff. Youíd think it was Super Bowl Sunday or something. It was too much for me. So I guess I just have to get use to the crowds. Even during the week is probably going to be too much.

Yes wake me up when the holiday shopping season is over, just kidding, but often I actually hold off on buying some things until after the holidays just to avoid crowds.

I didn't have class today because of the holidays, but I still have some homework to do and get prepared for the finals. The other day I went holiday shopping at night and the crowds didn't bother me.

I had no anxiety at work. I thought it would be really bad, but it wasnít. Now Iím starting to overthink stuff and think of situations that didnít even happen and project my feelings onto other people, who probably didnít even feel that way. So my anxiety is kind of bad right now. And my stomach is hurting now too. I took my Xanax and Iím hoping it will start to work soon.

I just mentioned on another thread the anxiety my upcoming holiday is presenting me. I fear something happening causing delays and missed flights making the journey a nightmare.

Well there is another worry too. The holiday consists of a riverboat cruise. This is now in jeopardy on account of low water levels. I realise whatever changes made to our trip will still be a grand adventure but it will be a disappointment not to make the planned itinerary. Fingers tightly crossed.

If my doctor is actually prescribing me two Xanax a day, then shouldnít I be taking them? My anxiety is bad and maybe I should be listening to him since he is the doctor. I trust him about 95% and I think he knows what heís talking about.

Sometimes I want to click the pause button on my life...long enough to calm myself down. When my anxiety is bad like tonight, everything in my life seems heavy and it is difficult to relax.

My pdoc went from prescribing one to two Xanax a day. It has helped me.

I haven't posted a check-in for a while now. That is not to say though that I haven't been dealing with a great deal of stress and anxiety. In fact it has been bad enough at times that I have been under a great deal of duress and distress. I figure it was best to try and avoid it though rather than ruminate and harp on about it.

Well ignoring my triggers certainly has not been the best way to go. For, they don't go away now do they. I have incidentally lost a lot of weight recently and I point to the stress as part of the cause.

Now however is a matter that is sending stress right out of the ballpark and I have been having a hard time recently just managing to carry on. I am not coping well and the worry is now spiralling out of control.

I have mentioned an impending trip that is now merely a week and a half away. It is a European river boat cruise down the Danube River. I should be amazing. The problem though is that I have found out by my own means that low water levels are affecting current sailings. I belong to a forum on these cruises and have read some really upsetting tales of how badly people's cruises have turned out.

So I am worried at how my own will be distrupted.

Particularly worrying is that the cruise line has as of yet not contacted us regarding the situation. Not a bloody word. It is now just over a week away and still no contact. I expected a travel package weeks ago yet not a damn thing. My travel agent is having no luck with getting any information from them either. Usually no news is good news but in this case I truly worry that is the opposite.

My stupid coworker is really immature and likes to scare people. Today I was doing a task and I was zoning out while remembering something anxiety provoking. Then all of a sudden I heard this banshee type yell and she screamed my name. I jumped and she started laughing at how vulnerable I looked. Grow the **** up.

Sometimes I really do want to tell management I have GAD.
