The past few days I've had high anxiety. I'm doing my best to just give it a nod and let it pass through me without getting hung up on it, but I have been noticing some of the annoying physical affects it has on me and I was wondering how common these are for others.
One particularly annoying but not too concerning symptom is that my hands get super sticky. I wash them and dry them and ten minutes later everything I touch wants to cling to my hands, as though my palms are covered with sticky tape.
Does anybody else get this? It's so weird. Sometimes my hands are sweaty even if I feel chilled, but mostly they are not so much sweaty as just plain sticky. I keep wondering if there's an evolutionary advantage to having sticky hands that could cause this to happen during times of stress. At the same time, it's very inconvenient and I end up constantly dropping things because instead of just letting go of them they cling to my hands. Maybe I was bitten by a radioactive spider?
