Ever since I was old enough to understand bad things, I have had an aniexity problem! If there was a murder on the news that happened a million miles from my house I would freak out, at about 6 years old. As I have gotten older I am a little better ( I can stand to watch the news anyway
) but I still worry over things I have NO control over. In turn I think it has a link to my slight depression that seems to come and go. Its nothing so bad as to need medication, but it still makes the days hard and even the horses aren't on my list of "cheery things to do" some days! I just work through and am trying very hard to change so I can see the BEST instead of always seeing the worst!
I hope it helps to know your not alone!
Also, what is this coldness you speak of ? Come on up to Canada, and I will show you cold! :)
