Okay, I have a couple specific fears- fear of being late (there is a traumatic story there). fear of being fired for being late. Fear of not waking up because my alarm clock wasn't set correctly. etc.

> I can remember feeling a lot of it. In my case the drugs that helped with it were the ones that aggravated it (benzos).

I cut out my caffeine and benzos about 3 weeks ago. about 5 days with no benzos. It wasn't the best 5 days. I drink a little green or oolong tea here and there, but still avoiding the heavy hitters- coffee and assam.

yes. I suppose I am wasting my life. or at least I feel that I am.

uh oh! I have odd behavior! (perish the thought!)

what's the end of the story??? you leave me hanging!! does dread evaporate? does it become more keenly felt with age?
