I just couldn't resist this. Thanks to Renee for letting me use this cute cartoon. Go on over and visit her, she has lots of really cute cartoons!
Actually I'm not afraid to take anxiety medicine. I'm more afraid of anxiety itself!
Anxiety is such a strange creature. One of the happiest times of my life, I was the most anxious. When I explained that to my doctor, I was informed that ANY kind of stress, good or bad is stress. It was right after Russell and I had married and lots of things were changing. I sold my house which meant I had nowhere to go if I felt trapped.....I didn't....feel trapped that is....but I might have I thought.....I quit my job to stay home and raise two more kids . That was very traumatic as I had worked most of my adult life and didn't know what to do with myself. AND I had already raised two kids. Just lots of stuff changed. And even though they were good changes, they triggered anxiety.
Some people don't understand anxiety.....feel Christians shouldn't even have anxiety.....if that's true, somebody should have told David, the apple of God's eye. He spent a lot of time crying out to God.
Actually, I'm not all that anxious right now. O.K. that's not entirely true. But I do trust everything will turn out good.
Now here's one who knows how to relax....
Ah, I think I'll go take a few lessons from Mikey!
