My boyfriend is leaving this afternoon for a trip out of state to help his parents with their estate sale. It's only four days and four nights, he'll be back Sunday, but I'm nervous. It's stupid. I'm perfectly competent at handling things on the home front. But I couldn't sleep last night, thinking about all kinds of "what if" crap that won't happen. You know, burglars, fires, dumb stuff. It's been making me have anxiety symptoms all day. I don't get it. I lived on my own for years and never worried. But somehow, now that I have a little girl who depends on me for safety, everything feels different.
Am I losing my mind, or does any of this make sense?

Keep yourself busy so you don't have to time to sit & think of the "what-if's". Besides, I'm sure you have a plan for those "what ifs" anyways. If it's a burglar, shoot him. If there's a fire, get out. Anything breaks, fix it, or wait for him to come home to fix it! lol :p I'm betting you may actually enjoy the time away & it won't be as bad as you think! :) Besides, there's always us! :p
