My anxiety has been extremely high today to the point of feeling like I can't leave the house. I made myself get out anyway, which was good, but I don't know what's happened that it's shot up recently.

Ah, the wonderful world of random, unexplained anxiety. But good for you for getting out of the house! I'm struggling with that motivation today too, but reading this helps.

Had a job interview today that sent my anxiety sky-high. I don't know what it is about interviewing with this place, I just feel like a mess during them. At least it's over now, I should be able to relax.

I'm going to cook for friends tonight. Nothing fancy. I hate using the excuse that I will do something "when I get better". Why not now? So what if I feel tense, and anxious? I like making food, and I shouldn't wait around for some mythical perfect day to do it.

Edit: It turned out alright. Weirdly, I still had the tension from a random anxiety today, but it didn't affect my mood tonight like it normally would. My body just feels like it ran a marathon is all.

I'm sorry you're feeling anxious. Everything will work out in time.

I'm back, at least for a bit.

Temporary back injections worked out okay, but I have a bad backache for a day or two after they wear off. I will be seeing the pain management doc tomorrow to see if I get the long-lasting ones. I hope so because I like to do more around the house. My mind is creating worse-case scenarios as usual, so I'm still rather anxious about the whole thing.

School is going okay. Not sure if I want to continue taking classes, as they stress me out more than anything now.

Husband is doing better now that we had the carpets cleaned. It will be time, though, to vacuum everything and I'm not looking forward to that.

So, right now I'm nervous but I seem to manage it okay.

I'm feeling really anxious about work tomorrow. I'm really not invested in this job anymore, I just don't want to bother going.

I do best when I can convince myself that there is nothing to gain by obsessing on the future. The nagging voice inside is trying to convince me that I'm being irresponsible by not thinking about the future enough. But my appointments are made, and my calendar is marked for any important events, so there's literally no reason to think anymore about the future. Anything else is just rumination.

I'm doing an okay job at not giving in to that voice this morning. I hope you all are managing okay too.
