I talked to the person that was wanting to contact me. I feel a slight relief. It is strange how certain situations can ramp up the anxiety. The situation might even be as simple as having to talk to someone that 'feels' like a threat. The person I talked to was nice to me. I think I was overly worried about being embarrassed by the topic he was contacting me about. I did feel some of that and some worry about his judgement.

I have to learn to stop letting fear of 'judgement' and embarrassment stop controlling me. How do you learn to let go of that fear?

Been feeling restless today .. like I canít sit still. Ugh itís irritating !! I donít have any anti-anxiety meds because the clinic I go to wonít fill my prescription for Ativan even though its the only thing Iíve tried that works. Iíve tried Buspar, Hydroxyzine, and Gapabentin but none of them ever helped. So I have to wait until the 22nd to see my pdoc and see if he will push the prescription through. I doubt he will.. he will probably tell me to keep trying the Hydroxyzine.. but itís been a few months that Iíve been on it and it doesnít work 😑😑

Yesterday was a doozy. Our "small" treadmill turned out to be over 200 lbs! We had a heck of a time getting it down to the basement. My husband and I are so sore. I kept apologizing for buying such a heavy piece.

Had another early morning. Finished my homework for the week. Probably will chill out for most of the day and maybe take a nap.

My anxiety isn't bad but will know more later today.

Daughter's boyfriend lost his bearded dragon this morning. He had it since he was nine or so, and it was old. He was really upset and touchy, so we're all trying to soothe him and help him out. He went to work early to get his mind off of it, but we know how it goes. I'm concerned I may have some rebound anxiety that I sometimes have when I'm taking care of other people in crisis. I seem to be okay for the moment.

Other than that and pushing a bunch of snow off the driveway--I would say it was a quiet day, but it just hasn't. Made muffins for breakfast because there's no way we were going to risk our necks (and only car) out in this snow.

Still the waiting game.

In the meantime my military disability benefit was approved. I am really anxious - and shouldn't be. What if they deem me not sick enough to have been awarded it?

I worry about the walk to the meeting. The sidewalks are sheets of glare ice. I have boot krampons but am still terrified to go out onto the street.
