I suffer from dread all of the time. Usually it isn't about one thing, but there are themes that center around being left with no control over my situations. If it is illness, then who will take me to the hospital, get clothing and personal effects to me. While there will I be able to move around or be tied to the uncomfortable bed? If it is family, I dread being the one everybody counts on for help, especially financial. I worry that as I age I won't be able to take care of my house, do repairs, wash clothing, cook. I live alone so all of these sorts od worry leave me with constant dread. Anyone else?

I'm sorry you feel that way. I don't suffer from that, but I do worry about my health and leaving my kids without a mom. I'm only 41 and other than being a little overweight I'm in decent health. Ive had numerous tests and all were fine. Unfortunately my anxiety just wont let me quit thinming about it.

It isn't a great feeling but I do have good days. I find Ativan very helpful, but I do not take them very often ecause they are habit forming. I know how you feel, and sounds like a bit of depression sneaking in to your life. I try to think of now, rather than the future. Try reading Echart Tolle. The Power of Now or A new Earth. They will help you I think. Take care.

Sorry to hear you experience dread. I used feel this sometimes, then try to change my thinking to include positive thoughts and remember I made it this far and have my basic needs met. I believe God and focus on the good things He has done for me. Many things are out of our control but I try not to fear them when they are not a reality yet.

That is very understandable, especially living alone. But you know, the Universe has a way of working things out. You have to believe that you will be just fine... You have to really believe it. I use to worry about sooooo many things, things that never happened. I know easier said than done but I pray you get at a point in your life where you can live your life and not live for the "what if's". In my "mental breakdown" period, I found that things has a way of working out for our good.... but we have to believe and KEEP THE FAITH!!! We have to choose to be happy and content with our life. We have to learn to live in the NOW, not in future. Easier said than done but possible.

Im also in the same boat as you in terms of sometimes worrying about being sick & havin no one to care for me, or no longer being financially independent etc.I also live alone.(i have no parents). So i watch alot of Joel Osteen youtube videos and to be honest it helps alot,although i still worry from time to time,but im getting alot better.

The video that helps me alot,is the one called "unclutter your mind" joel osteen,its on youtube.

Sounds like a good video...may have to check that out. I had to do just that..unclutter my mind. Anxiety holds a cluttered mind captive.

Anxiety may not allow you to quit thinking about it but you however can train your mind to think positive thoughts. I understand easier said than done but it can be done.
