Life for me was so different a few months ago, I was hardly worried about any of the things I'm worried now. I was doing an internship from 8AM-5PM, came home and sometimes went to different things that were going on in the city I was living in. Now that I've graduated, I'm living at home and have nothing to do for the time being (with my dad and two grandparents) and will be going soon to my mom's place (3,000 miles away) she lives with her brother, his wife and two kids.
I am constantly worried all the time and can't stop being worried. I'm scared about my parents health. I'm constantly worried about my dad because he doesn't take care of himself or go to doctor's appointments. I'm worried about my mom's health. Little things set me off. I've flown a thousand times, but I'm afraid of flying. I constantly think something bad's going to happen. I can't get these what if thoughts out of my head. I have noticed that these thoughts reoccur especially when I am at home without a set schedule. When I have a schedule or when my family goes to other family member's house, my mind is more at ease.
I am wondering if it's the same for others. I have contemplated reading a few self-help books now that I have the time. suggestions would be welcome
