I do not know what is in the air. Something is amiss in the Little House on the Corner! The two members of this household with anxiety disorder have both decided to take a big back step recently. Richard is generally happy and is really into some big summer reading. However, bedtime really has been hard. He is 15 years old, it's not that he is afraid of going to bed but his OCD acts up at night. It puts distressing thoughts into his mind and he has a hard time. This makes his anxiety level go up which, in turn, makes mine go up! I have other things I am struggling with too but yeah, that's pretty much it...I am anxious. I have so many fun projects to do waiting in the wings and I wake up every day with the intent of getting them started but this disorder, when it is acting up, makes it very difficult to focus on any one thing. Consequently, I get to the end of each day and ask myself what the heck I have accomplished! Thus...guilt!
I stayed in bed this morning. I needed it. I do not feel guilty about it...much! A few prayers sent our way would be very welcome. I love you all!
