Fear Of Missing Out.

I'm noticing this strange phenomena creeping in while I'm trying to heal. I'm 4 months today (YAY !) and I'm still having the PAWS. I do have more good days then bad, but when the bad days come, I have to just rest and heal.

I noticed I get this anxiety like I'm missing out on something.

Anyone else feel me ?

First off congratulations. I think a lot about what everyone else is doing while I am home, but then I remember most of those nights that started out fun ended up with fighting, sickness, or misery. Then being home just hanging out with my family seems awesome.

Alpha, congrats on four months!! That's awesome, keep up the good fight!

The anxiety is what's been most difficult for me. Sometimes I have to leave the room and find a quiet place by myself and try to calm down (almost like a meditation I suppose). I can't say one thing or another triggers it, but it always comes. And, thankfully, it always passes.

Congrats on 4 months AO!

I used to feel like I was missing something but if you play the tape to the end you realize that many times booze ruins good times for many people. It all starts out OK...and then it all goes to hell.

Four months is great, dear AO!!!!

At four months, I still had serious brain-fog and significant lethargy.

I had tons of anxiety but I associated mine with caring for a very ill and then dying parent. I was definitely missing out on a lot as I did very, very little other than caregiving for 2+ years but I don't think that that made me anxious.

Love and caring thoughts to you.

Knowing that you had that at 4 months, while caring for a dying parent, makes me know, we really ARE soul sisters.
