  • No, most things people worry about are beyond their control and it just wastes a lot of time and energy worrying about them.

  • Yes and a planner. I worry about plans not working out. Some say God laughs when we plan.

  • Not at this point and time in life.

    I used to be when I was younger. I would worry about anything and everything. To the point that I would be awake at night with thoughts going through my mind like: what do I do if this happens.. how do I handle it if that happens.. if this is said do I say this or that. ect.

    Then.. I realized. I was making my life seem worse, my problems seem worse, and made issues more difficult to address and resolve because I was so stressed out/worried all the time over stuff. I finally realized and accepted that no matter how much I worried, my worrying didn't make things any better or easier (made it worse actually), worrying didn't bring about a solution to problems at hand, and worrying about things that hadn't even happened was just a pointless exercise all the way around. Once I accepted these things. Worrying just sort of , stopped. No I no longer worry. I just take care of things as needed

  • Incessantly. Therapy and medication has helped so much more than I could ever say.

  • I have comes with the territory. lol. Plus I'm a paranoid person, and that doesn't help. But meds do, at least for me..I just haven't needed them lately. Found my own ways of dealing with worries, etc, without medication or overeating (which I used to do).
