Hello Chick... Welcome to Anxiety Zone! My name is Chuck, and I am one of the Global Moderators here on the site.
You are now a member of our community, where you will find support and advice from other members in similar situations. It's always nice to find someone else who understands, and to know you're not alone.
We have sections in the forum that address specific concerns, so feel free to post or start a new topic in the section that best fits your situation. Feel free to explore the rest of the forum. You may find the other topics helpful, and you may be able to offer advice or support to someone else.
We also have a chat room for members over the age of 18. Once you have made three meaningful posts, you will be allowed access to the chat room.
Chick, I can think of a number of things you can do, that might ease your anxiety.
Ernest Holmes said, "Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it." That being the case, do your best to stay away from Internet topics/stories that will just exacerbate your anxiety.
Also, you said that you are not working right now, but are actively looking for a job. Until you find one, do your best to get out of the house everyday. There are plenty of things you can do that don't cost anything. Take a walk in a park, visit a museum, or just window shop at the mall. You might also look for some volunteer work in your community. It is a great way to meet new people, and a volunteer job might just unlock something towards a paying one.
Again, welcome to Anxiety Zone, Chick. The very best to you!... Chuck
