Anxiety Is the Space Between the ‘Now’ & ‘Then’

I have no real blog today.

I came close to having an anxiety attack last night…Closest I’ve come to in a while. I think it has to do with the fact that I’m going to go and check out my new place tonight. Ya know, the one I’m moving to in 7 weeks?

That decision I’ve made to change my life and I have no idea how I’m going to pull it off?

Yeah, that house. With one of my best friends. What happens AFTER I move out/in isn’t what’s making me anxious.

It’s the actual getting OUT.

I’ve been keeping so positive lately that I’m trying to avoid the anxiety, making myself believe that I can do this. I’ve been spending time with friends, making PLANS with friends, making plans for my life, my year, my future…to go after my dreams.

This is the most I’ve let myself go in years. I’m afraid of crash and burn. I don’t do well with disappointment. I don’t do well with letting my dreams fall apart…again. I’ve done it over and over and over again…hoped and planned only to have everything ripped away.

Why do I think this time will be different?

In other news, last night’s House was really good. I love the interaction between Wilson & House…and I was happy to realize that I have friends like that too. The ones who can pull me out of anything…though I kind of hate Cameron’s guts. Just sayin.

PS: I now have the Google Friend Connect on the side so join before you leave. I should have the html site up in a couple of weeks. Papers & end of semester keep calling my name. *sigh*

    Dude, you will be FINE. Sure, it is a bit anxiety provoking; I am not trying to diminish your feelings…but you are with a friend in a city you know. You have a support network. It will all work out. Promise.

    What is this anxiety you speak of……and why is it attacking you?!?!?!? BAD ANXIETY!

    I’m sure it won’t be as bad as you might think and even if it IS…you’ll be getting OUT!!!!

    Once you pull the trigger you will feel so much better. Hang in there!

    You will be fine, you are making a leap of faith and that is always scary. Have faith in yourself and you will fly!

    Your family will be fine. It may take a little while for them to adjust, but they will figure things out. You’ve stayed a lot longer than most people would have under the circumstances.

    Anxious? How can you be anything except excited? You’re FREE, FREE I TELL YOU!!!!

    Okay, maybe I was a bit more thrilled than most to leave home. My parents are kickass but there comes a time, dude.

    P.S. My doctor throws klonopin at me whenever I go in, if you want his digits.

    you are in the home stretch. My only fear for you is simply attempting to get your shit out of the house. You are going to have to start taking one trinket at a time with you and putting it in your trunk so that she doesnt freak out when you are hauling boxes and bedframes out of the front door.

    Once you are out though… there is no turning back. And it is going to be AWESOME!

    (get Lilu’s doctors name. Just saying)

    I’m proud of you for moving out. It’s only natural to be anxious about something this big. But you know what? You can do it. You’re a strong girl. You’re going to be living with someone you aren’t related to, and that’s going to feel amazing.

    I think you’ll be ok, too.

    And on these big life decisions, doing what’s right for you isn’t selfish. It’s necessary. Try not to get caught up about whether it’s good enough for them, or makes sense to her, or is the right thing for him… Because good people always worry about the people around them. That’s not gonna go away, especially when you put you first. Just try and be confident that it’s the right thing for you. Everything else will fall into place.
