Today my social anxiety is pretty bad but my general anxiety is manageable.

I went to the pharmacy today to pick up meds I ordered 2 days ago. They weren't ready. So I have to make another trip to the pharmacy to pick them up. It makes me anxious. It's hanging over my head just like the vet appointment I have next week. I think it's time for a Klonopin. I need to calm down.

Iím kinda nervous about Thanksgiving. But itís just been a thought in the back of my head most of the day and I havenít been majorly stressed about it.

Iím trying not to bring it up much because my mom is looking forward to it and I donít want to get her down in the dumps about me being unhappy and anxious about it.

My sister is in the ICU for a blood clot and she is making me anxious. She has stage 4 cancer surgery in two days. She wasn't very nice to me yesterday and now she is being weird. It's upsetting me.

I just took my second Valium. Which is kinda good considering Iím usually on my 3rd by now. I had been listening to scary podcasts and then I got a bit spooked while running to Walgreens and itís kinda creepy looking outside right now. Very fall and Halloween like. But Iím not sure Iím in the mood to go back to the podcasts today. At least those ones.

My anxiety was under control after I took one of my meds early around noon. I think I took it with a Valium too. Before my anxiety was so high I felt flushed and hot and my temp was 98.7. But Iím ok now.

I feel kinda anxious that I hurt myself and gave myself surgery complications. Also Iím not looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. Iím traveling which I donít want to do in general this year and I donít want to see specific family members. Especially all at one time. I know I did that during our vacation in July. But it wasnít that many people. Although believe me I was nervous then too but I got through it. So I guess Iíll just get through this too. But Thanksgivings arenít the best for me. I either have to deal with family I donít want to deal with or I have crazy work shifts the next day. My dad even died 2 days after Thanksgiving 2014.

I'm anxious about everything. I was dealing with a panic attack earlier. I chewed on aspirin just to help any potential blood clots, since I haven't been able to make it into the doctor's for exams and blood tests for over 19 months. I know the new news is that aspirin is no longer recommended for those who don't have diagnosed heart conditions or hypertension or stroke. But it still puts my mind at ease to at least take aspirin on occasion when I feel this way. I'm not taking any anti-anxiety, and the VA has frowned upon prescribing that. So I deal with anxiety the best way I can. It's the heart palpitations that bother me every single night. Today I'm anxious because my sister and I are estranged and yesterday was her birthday. I also haven't heard back from my mom, and I worry about her health. I don't live near any family, and I've not seen them for Thanksgiving or Christmas in over 25 years. I'm really alone, even though I do have local and distal friends.

My anxiety is tough right now. Itís most likely related to the large coffee and 3 sodas I had and the lack of food Iíve had today. I took a few of my meds super early and then I took my 3rd Valium. I need to go watch TV and do some distraction.

I was very anxious this morning. I did a Covid test. I was scared of the drive and doing the test. But I made it. Now I'm anxious cause I'm waiting for someone to return my call. I may not hear from them today. It's getting late.

My anxiety was decent for the most part but Iíve had a lot of caffeine including 2 mountain dews. So a 4th Valium may be needed. For the first time in awhile. Or I could just you know lay off the caffeine but I never want to do things the easy way.

Iím trying not to worry about Thanksgiving but itís hard not to be anxious about it. Iím trying not to stress too much about it because my anxiety gets my mom going as well. Maybe the hotel will be booked. We havenít even made reservations yet I donít know why my mom hasnít done it. Iíve heard this year will be crazy.

And my mom just got the reservations made. ****.

I'm anxious about tomorrow. It's my birthday. My mom wants me to come visit. My test came back negative, but I am worried about getting dressed. I fear the shower. I've been washing up at the sink, but tomorrow, I really need a shower.

I was showering for a while and then I don't know what happened. It got to be too much. Maybe I can just shower my hair. I'll do the best I can.

I got my shower last night and today was so much easier. I was still a bit anxious cause I had to get my booster. And then later I drove out to my mom's But I did it. I left my house for important things and I survived. I even enjoyed myself. I guess I am capable.

Iím trying not to be a jerk about thanksgiving. But itís really hard for me to process this. My mom has made all kinds of promises of places we can go to to make the trip easier for me but Iím still having a hard time with it. Itís just seeing a bunch of family at one time. I know everyone is supportive of me but itís still going to be very hard.

But Iím trying very hard not to make my mom as miserable as I am about this. Or make my family think I donít like them.
