Seriously, I am nearly 36 yrs old. I hae 3 kids. One is 17. I have been a mom a long time.

Why when R moved out do I all of a sudden feel like I am floundering and like I am panicking over every little thing? This is just... weird. He was great at helping w/ the SAHD things, not the scheduling (NOT a multitasker AT ALL) and I had to micromanage from my desk at work to make sure kids got to appt's etc.

So why do I have these feelings NOW? This is just.. weird. I feel like an 18 yr old in her own apartment who is nervously locking the doors and jumping out of bed at noises in the night?

When does this go away and my sense of independance comes back?

does this about sum up how you feel?

i deal with anxiety a lot, sometimes it's completely overwhelming. in my experience it doesn't have so much to do with external factors as internal ones. i mean, sometimes life is crazycrazycrazy and i do fine, other times even tiny things trip me up. sleep, good food, yoga and exercise minimize anxiety for me, and with them i'm ok. i don't know if this helps at all, but i reallyreally know what you're going through.
