I probably don't have anything that will help but a bit of sympathy. Anyway, if you can, spend a day with yer kids Dingus. It still helps even long after they've grown up and moved out. Barring that, even texting helps when you can't be there to get hugs and stoke in person. I texted the lad yesterday, ("hey kid I got a new kayak, LOOK") perks me up. Course, I had a new Kayak which might be a good thing for you to get too. And some time to use it:-)

Best to identify what is causing it and address it directly. Then stop worrying over it if you can't change it. Good luck, life is already too short to be cranked up over.

Don't worry, be happy . . . sadly it seems that fear and anxiety are the new American Dream turned nightmare. Everywhere one turns there are doubts and uncertainties in abundance. Must not let the surface discourage the internal.

Spring is coming my friend, along with it a rebirth, fresh, vibrant and alive.

Roof is leaking, I am behind in my rent, Jennie is up and down...

... anxiety? What is that?

I'd go climbing - but it is snowing out. And the roof is still leaking.

Anxiety. It's too easy. Give me a good round of total bullish*t, of people asking me for money, of people cutting off my credit. Anxiety? Bah, give me heartbreak. Give me a banker telling me that they don't care.

Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death.

Anxiety? Is that like when you try to get to sleep at night and then remember you didn't buy milk for your morning coffee? I hate that, but maybe that's despair or desolation.

Here's a thought; with all that time spent in the airplane position your moving parts may stiffen up and get painful enough to distract you from the anxiety.

So better get on the yoga.

They got you cats in your absence ? Oh, dear. Small furry beasties who will do nothing but rip up yer furniture, pee on your best down sleepin' bag, and then give up the cuteness so easily your big ol' messed up heart just melts away like butter on a stovetop.

So now just add yoga.

I dont fly without taking a sleeping pill or two.. They dont put me to sleep but the relax the snot out of me- it may cause drooling..Lat flight i had to Miwlwaukee,, i had been served a drink,, was holding it in my hand, and i drifted off under the calming influence of a sominex. Ya know,,, how sometimes you JERK waking up?? Yep i did just that with the drink in my hand which ended up running down the front of me..The guy beside me asks if im ok and i tell him sure man- i always like to absorb my coffee directly through the skin!

MH2, milk for coffee? I forgot about that.

I do have a couple of Euro, milk is top of the list. Wine is out, whine whine whine.

Dingus, I do not know why you deleted your post on the Oakdale Fest thread. But I am sure you had a good reason. As far as anxiety is concerned, I can ID with you.

I will send you my best wishes and vibes. And all of you Taco Standers. Times are tough. And we need the best of vibes.

I have not had a good sleep for well over a week. Anxiety. But I am the eternal optimist.

Getting on the rock helps, but it is snowing (sort of) out.

EDIT

Hey Tami, Boots is not that bad. Yeah, he is a pain, but does not rip up the furniture and knows where his litter tray is (he never uses it, he scratches the rugs to us know that he wants out ).

Anxiety? It makes my palms itch.

I feel your pain.
I travel endlessly too.
Right now I'm n the sky headed home after 27 days on the road.

For me it's more the gray skies of winter... Eats me alive.
It's easy to get depressed and lonely on the road...

My Gawd I want a real meal from my kitchen!

Looking forward to a week in the sun at home, then gone again for a few weeks....

Angus is in Pinns for a couple days.

Might be just the thing. Relaxing on some loose cobbles.

Brian Eno's album "Ambient Music for Airports" is a must-have for any interactions with airports or planes. I set it on loop. The guy has it dialed. Airport noise and seats too narrow for your shoulders (bump) ought to have their own ring in Dante's Inferno. In fact, the only thing that gives me pause about heading out to Facelift again this year is the flipping God-awful long flights.

Kava tea is really good. I used to drink it two bags at a time until they added barley malt to sweeten it. Well, that and they took the capsules off the market over liver disease questions. Good thing they were still around when I took the bar or I probably would have run out of the exam screaming.

Klonopin has the added benefit that it is a mild muscle relaxant, and can help with sleep. Less sleep on the road = less HGH released = more build-up of garbage in your system, making you feel worse and worse. Good night of sleep = oil change for the body.

I can remember having to fly to Chicago 1 - 2 x per month and being awake for 2 & 3 & 4 days straight because I just couldn't sleep out there.

I had life-long, chronic anxiety and massive panic attacks (cycled with chronic depression) until I got rid of grains completely about a year and a half ago. Not a hint of them (or depression) since. No kidding.

I feel your pain & agree that furry family members are good for the soul. Hope you're feeling better!!!

hey there say, DMT... oh my, very sorry i am so late... and won't do much good, now...

or if i could... :(


this won't help, i know, but i pray, and it helps me...

but for you, i'd say:
keep busy somehow, so you don't 'overthink' things...

either have paper and pencil and just doodle... which gets
out 'excxess built up energy' from worrying, but not being able to DO anything...

or--make a list of things that need solving, and what you might do etc, about
them... you will be so busy, you won't have time to be anxious, as you
will be in 'problem solving mode' and that tends to make one creative,
and THUS not as anxious...

(course, trying to actually DO some of the stuff later, and not have it turn
out the way you might, wish, MAY LATER make you anxsious... but you will have to deal with that later, and by then, you would be home, and in a more hopefully 'calming place'... )

god bless, to you dingus and the new cat-critters... keep loving your family,
and may you feel good, soon...
