I can't exactly figure out why.  I get this way when things in my life are calm.  Can't even enjoy calm.  What the hell.  Right now I'm about to explode out of my skin.  On the verge of screaming or crying.  I can't tell which.  I don't get it!

Sorry you are feeling this way. I get like this too when things are calm. I think for me it's because I've finally slowed down and that's when all of the stressful things creep up on. Plus I feel like I should be accomplishing something.

Just wanted to let you know that you aren't the only one who feels this way.  I suffer from anxiety, too.  I feel guilty when I cannot relax and enjoy the simple things.  I am looking for some gentle, natural remedy right now.  Hang in there!!

Got to admit it's getting better, getting better all the time.

i have the same problem. i get through the rough times, then when it's all calm i fall apart. it's really hit hard with my baby-she's the 4th but every little thing freaks me out and i feel so stupid. anxiety makes me feel worthless and just stupid. it's ridiculous. my mom suffers to the point she can barely leave the house, and her voice tremors as if she's on the verge of crying at all times. it scares me to think i could be that way! i don't know of any cures...it would help to get more sleep and drink less coffee, but that's not in the cards right now LOL it feels good to me that i can talk about it, and being able to even joke about it is a good thing. get angry at it.

I have suffered from anxiety too. I started taking St. John's Wort (double the dose on the bottle...if you read about it, you will find that for people with depression, an even stronger dose is recommended) in November even though it's for depression and it really helped take the edge off of my anxiety. It took about a month and it wasn't a real noticeable change. I just kind of noticed one day that I wasn't as anxious anymore. I also started taking an Omega 3,6,9 oil (Udo's Oil) and that seems to have helped too.
I have never been to the doctor for anxiety, but have dealt with feeling extremely anxious and panicked even when things are going great in my life and even when I'm doing something relaxing. It's like I can't calm down and relax. Since taking these supplements, I haven't had those feelings. So it might be worth a try for you.

Thanks all.  Dh and I talked about it for awhile and can't seem to pinpoint a reason.  I'm actually feeling better right now.  Anxiety is hard to work through and it does feel like I'm on the verge of crying all the time.  I'm gonna make it through.

I don't think it is.  I do deal with a lot of physical pain that does make me feel down sometimes but for the most part I'm pretty happy.  The anxiety part I think may have a lot to do with these really weird expectations I put on myself.   I get anxious when I have to pay the bills, we were bone broke the last couple of years and it sucked.  I still hate doing the bills even when I have more than half my paycheck left over where as before I had maybe 100 bucks to last a few weeks.  Totally messed with me.  I'm trying to find all the things that set me off.  That's def one of them.

could you put some of the triggers onto your husband? our bills were totally messed up until i took over years ago lol and right now things are temporarily in the crapper financially but in the next month we'll be ok. as long as no major medical things happen! i have my husband handle teenage driving and some major issues with one of my kids bc i couldn't handle it. it's good to be able to pick out what causes your anxiety, especially when it happens in the middle of calm!

greensad.gifI have suffered this problem, too. I feel anxious when I cannot relax myself and enjoy the simple things. When my little sleepy girl had fell asleep, I suffered from insomnia, even now, I still don't know why.
