Welcome to the forum. There is a lot going on in the world right now. Thank God I live in Ireland. Don't have to put up with all the Trump rubbish. Week or so and he will be out of the white house. His supporters might not like it much. But they will finally have to accept it. Seems some people use anything they can to riot. If it is not Trump, they would find something else.

I won't even pretend to under all these new gender types. Each to their own. If it is not effecting somebody and their own lifestyle, I don't see why they should have a problem with it. People should be simply left alone to be who they want to be. I know you will always have haters out there. Not sure if a Transmasiline dresses like a male or a female. But you would kind of imagine people would be used to it by now.

Dogs? You ever bitten before? They can be avoided. Have known some people with fears of them. Smallest dog would senf them running. this is one fear you could try and get over. visit a dog pound. Explain your fear. Ask to see a new pup. Harmless little creature. I love dogs. But there are some I would not go near. Those cross breeds. Part Pitbull part Lord knows what else.

Make yourself at home on the forum.

Wow. I am so sorry to hear what your going through. I'm sure it's extremely stressful deal with. I can only imagine it can't be easy. I never experienced what you are going through, so can't give any advice. I do hope you know that you aren't alone in all of it. ALso people out there (INCLUDING ME) who are there if you need someone to vent to. As far as help with feeling anxious? Given your situation you have every right to feel anxious. Just try to take time to find things that make you feel positive, and hold onto that. Take time to care for yourself, and give yourself permission to feel happiness. Anxiety won't go away at times, but don't let it destroy the rest of your peace.

Hello Alex, sorry to hear about your stress. I am stressed out by American politics, and in particular the nightmare that is Trump and Trump's influence, and I don't even live in America.
