Yesac, I do think I understand how horrible it is for you. I wish I could offer help. On my days off (when I worked) I would get my 2pm anxiety, it was excruciating. The reason i think it was 2pm was because I did my morning *thing*
and then it was blank.. I'd settle down again in the evening. I dreaded these unmarked days.
Summer is the worst time for me because the days are longer.
Again the only thing that helped was getting my depression undercontrol, I hadn't realized the anxiety was part of the depression and the inability to know what to do with myself were all intertwined.
Before that if I tried to sit and read a book
my hands would get clammy, I felt like "No I'm missing something I have to be doing something for my future everythings just going to fall apart.. I'm getting older, I mean my brain would just spin
I don't know if thats sort of what its like for you, but for me its definitely an aspect of the depression and has been treated successfully, and no, I haven't become a complacent slug.
Actually I'm more productive because I can focus and finish something, and its so nice not having that sense of impending doom, when leaving somewhere for home.
