I need some advice. Lately I have been worrying a lot about different things, and it is causing me to have more frequent (sometimes daily) anxiety attacks. I cannot keep taking xanax for them everytime, I don’t want to form an addiction.
But anyway, I’ve had worries and thoughts bouncing around in my head at 100 miles an hour. I worry about dad who is working 2 minimum wage jobs and having an nondependable car to travel to work. , I worry about my brother with cerebral palsy who is confined to his room because he doesn’t like to go places for fear of inconviening other people (he’s in a wheelchair), I worry about my mom and her weight, my mother’s boyfriend who has kids that abuse him, and my grandparents passing away. I love them so much. I worry about my fiance being unemployed and not being able to find work.
I worry about the homeless people I encounter in this cold weather. I’ve even been breaking down in tears if I see a dead animal in the road.
I want SO BADLY to help these people, but I can’t like I want to. I just want my mind to slow down!!! I know worrying won’t help anything, but I can’t stop. What should I do? How can I stop these anxiety attacks and worrying so much?
