I have had to acknowledge some anxiety issues this past couple of weeks. I could not figure out why I felt so bad and why surgery had not gotten rid of the symptoms that caused me so much trouble and then I finally figured it out.
Anxiety. Stress, stirred in with a touch of depression. I am sure it is something many empty nesters , let alone those who resnest go through.
I just could not get excited to do anything lately but I am happy, not curled up in bed refusing to live. I thought depression meant you slept all day and did not enjoy life and I do enjoy life but something was not quite right for me.
So, I am dealing with the anxiety and working hard to get moving again here on this site so I can talk more about the things I am going through, which I know will help with these issues.
I will write more on this subject later, but just wanted to start the dialog on it at the very least, for myself. I have not had any visitors in a long time, but this site is as much for me as I had hoped it to be for others in my situation and I am hoping that the writing process will help me to overcome my current issues with the anxiety and stress I am experiencing.
