I’m just waiting out my anxiety before going over to an old friend’s house for barbecue and pool party. I’ll be fine once I get there and hang out for a few minutes. Right now, I’m the tense grip of irrational anxieties.
I’m worried my car will overheat. (Unlikely.) I’m worried *I* will overheat. (More likely, even with a pool.) I’m worried I’m going to accidentally fall asleep before it’s time to go and sleep through the while thing. (Yeah, weird anxiety, but it has happened to me before. Multiple times.) I’m worried about coordinating picking up my son from his grandparents. I’m worried about making a phone call to his grandparents because phone anxiety augh augh augh even though they are fine nice pleasant people augh phone hate phone.
If it weren’t for beta blockers, I’d be a basket case. Fortunately, I’m only thinking like a basket case, not feeling so much like one. Still all tensed up, but my heart isn’t racing. Thank you, propanolol.
So, what are you guys up to?
