Scott Racer .... I do get anxious

Scott I wrote that I don't anxious/anxiety. But I was thinking of GAD, SA, or depression related forms. But I just realised that I DO GET ANXIOUS and I only thought of it now. I get anxious about food. About how many calories I am consuming. If I have to eat out I comb the menu for something where I know the approximate amount of calories and even then my throat tightens as I try to swallow the food. When I had friends and we would go out for supper I would only join them for the coffee portion of the meal because I couldn't handle it.

So I stand corrected ... I have anxiety.

It's only in the last few months that I've really understood how much of an issue it is for me, and now that I "get it", I can see how much of a problem it always has been for me. Hard as hell for me to look at it, but I'm glad now that I did.
