Easy solution. Quit that gig, and get a more relaxing job. There are way more important things to stress about than a job.

Not sure how you do it Dingus, hardcore man. I get anxiety everytime I get around crowds, airports, cities, etc. Give me the great outdoors! I was traveling so much that Im to the point, that I try to avoid air travel like the plague anymore.

Dingus try to stay positive. Don't let the negative thoughts spiral. Listen to good reggae (Burning Spear), meditate (youtube actually has some pretty good videos to help with this), go for a walk, drink some chamomile (did I spell that right?) tea. I'm recovering from PTSD. All of this really helps me. Stay steady my friend. It helps to tell yourself it won't last forever...

I went back to work for 2 months;...long term sub job in a 3rd grade class;...I gained 15 lbs and got no exercise....it was fun, profitable, but alittle stressful for a senior citizen such as myself. That is over, but now the REAL anxiety arrives;.....I am so stressed out. Each day, I now have to decide if I am going biking then climbing......or climbing and then biking......or just biking,.....or just climbing....or just hiking.....maybe some housework...(nahhhhh)....or maybe just go to Starbucks w/a newspaper and a java and chill...it's stressing me out, man.....too many decisions....too many options....
(Dingus;...you got it, bro;.....it's a roller coaster sometimes....we got your back, sir;.....so go for the gold;...the power and the glory.....we'll spot ya...)...

Sounds really unpleasant Dingus, but I'm glad to see there's an explanation for why everyone's favorite uncle has been acting out and so cranky lately. Cats will get you through times of high anxiety better than high anxiety will get you through times of no cats.

oh yeah, and yoga.

Lots of great suggestions here. Personally after owning a Pharmacy for 20 years, if you have to drug yourself to live, you need to re examine your life. Short term may be an interim solution but not a forever solution.

Hobo dan made a great comment. Water and Exercise is awesome. Exercise rids the out door folk of the indoor demons.

Think Kalimon and 10b4me nailed it. What the f. kind of life are we living when it produces such results. Maybe time to re evaluate. Only the brave and the dumb blondes do.

Dumb blonde re evaluation: When Dan died five years ago, my husband, lover, best friend and adventure man I lived anxiety. I had to decide what to do about it.

I chose to turn my back on my then current life and create a new one. It was Dang Hard. At times I've had to count toilet paper squares.

But turning the sail into the wind and living one day at a time, one step at a time with Peace, Patience and Perseverance. I can now buy toilet paper. :D

But really, I am living a life I love. I am learning and growning.

I don't know you at all Dingus (but I love your Trip Reports.) But sometimes you think you have to produce a style of living for your family when all they really would like is you, home.

Peace, Lynnie

Sometimes it is not so simple. We work to provide. In the end we lose who we are providing for. Sucks.

johntp, sorry.

Personally I would have loved having my husband less stressed and happy with what he enjoyed....cause we enjoyed the same things.

Question here: Kinda Important One. Do guys think they need to keep up with the Joneses? Is it a Testosterone thing. I know some spouses like things, big homes etc....well maybe, did you ever ask your spouse/family?

Jess thinking out loud here. :D

Sometimes it comes down to what you are good at and what you are interested in requires a kind of commitment that can be all encompassing. And for awhile that can be fine, even good, such as becoming a surgeon requires intense commitment, but then sometimes you start to wear out and then you can be stuck. If you don't have any commitments, then it is much easier to change course, but if you have commitments, then it can be difficult. So you end up keeping on in something that is tearing you apart.

Good people get torn up all the time by the circumstances of life. A prime example in our society is someone stuck in a job because they need health insurance for a loved one. It isn't just the individuals decisions that affect how they live. The society they live in also affects them.

Good point, John M. But I believe the higher powers will help you and not destroy you in your attempts to provide for the ones you love. Smiles, lynne
