Anybody else HATE change? Does it give you anxiety attacks?

My husband announced that he wants to switch from T-Mobile to Sprint and get new HTC phones or whatever. We have had BlackBerrys from T-Mobile for years. I am comfortable with my phone, the plan, the BBM etc.
I am freaking out over a stupid cell phone. I hate change. Anything that is going to change in our lives freaks me out. I need to mull it over and become "ok" with it for days before I can calm down about it.

Am I just a weirdo???

  • I absolutely hate change! I have it rough since DH's job requires us to travel around US and I am always having to adjust to everyhthing being different. By the time I get use to where we are, it is time to pack up the 5th wheel and head to the next job.

  • Yes, you are a weirdo... but not JUST a weirdo....

    Clearly, you're enjoying yourself or you wouldn't repeat it --probably nice and distracting from real issues, or fun to talk about or you get attention or something... which is fine. Fun is important, we need distractions from overwhelming stuff, and we genuinely need attention and this is certainly better than some of the more creative means of getting it...

    If your anxiety starts to bother you, you can deal with that in a variety of ways... meditation, hypnosis, therapy, exercise, volunteering, making conscious choices... lots of things work and don't cause problems the way some anxiety relief does (like drugs and alcohol, which certainly relieve it but come with a whole set of other stresses).
