    Self medicating and prescription medication is a rabbit hole you want to avoid. What the Holy Bible teaches helps me deal with life.

    Working from home has its pluses and minuses. It can be hard to focus when you are sitting at home in a room all by yourself.

    I kinda know how you feel right now, man. Things have been going not great and they just seem to be getting worse. I am at a new job, have to wait before the first paycheck comes, and I am brokebrokeBROKE. The light in my car came on telling me I am almost out of gas, that means I might have enough to get to work tomorrow, but not enough to get home, and I don't know anyone well enough that I could ask to borrow even $5.

    The absolute worst part is knowing I have no one to blame but myself for my current predicament. And that status is "BLOWS, HARD".

    But I will be alive again tomorrow, as long as nothing takes me in the night. Blessing or curse, right now I don't know which that is.

    I hope your days are better, man.

    Dont cry over spilt milk....(apparently there was a teacher who actually demonstrated this to a class......the students were mystified, and it was burned into their collective psyche)

    That is very kind and far too generous. I appreciate the offer, though.

    Take some downers and some uppers and see who wins. Keep us posted.

    If that's no bueno, I heard some CNN anchor had a good way to deal with Zoom calls.

    “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
    2 Timothy 1:7

    I’ve learned to not sweat the big stuff because I’m assured that it’ll all work out in the end. Just do the little things each day to get yourself in a better place than yesterday. Small steps.

    Take walks. Pray. Set up bird feeders. Pray some more. Learn about something you’ve always been interested in, but never made the time to study. Pray again.

    Alternative. After due consideration, I conclude that your anxiety is caused by tight pants. Go to Goodwill and buy a larger size. Most of us have that anxiety as we age.

    I have found the same. Not drinking leads to better sleep and less stress.

    Not everyone is a Christian, or even religious.

    So, what causes the anxiety? Is it external, or internal?
