It is that tension, pressure in the chest, racing thoughts and checking in to see if everything is ok.
It feels like something is going to happen at any moment. Something bad. You don’t know what it is but you scan for it. You are on the lookout for it. It’s like you are stuck in a suspenseful movie, always looking for danger.
No matter what you do, ignore, distract, tell yourself it will be ok. Nothing seems to help.
What can I do, as I get older the anxiety and racing thoughts get worse.
Worry about kids, job, economy, relationship, housing, community, global warming, social events…. This list is overwhelming just looking at it.
So what do you do? Clean, organize, Isolate, binge watch tv, pray, meditate
