I don’t know if this is better posted on the anxiety forum of this site, but I’ve come to take comfort from the people who frequent here.
Basically, my parents (my “safe” people) will be gone over the weekend and I’m feeling on edge/scared about that. I won’t be totally by myself thank goodness - my older brother will also be at home, but idk this will be the first time since my anxiety came back that my parents won’t be there for a couple days.
I wasn’t as nervous about this earlier in the week. Idk if it’s just because it’s approaching closer or because I haven’t gotten much sleep the past 2 days and that’s making me slip more.
Somewhere I know it’s stupid because I’ve been alone for days on end before and was completely fine and able to handle it before the anxiety returned. But I can’t help but get that scared feeling in the pit of my stomach and think about the scary “what if’s” that might happen while their gone
Anyone else ever go through this where their ultimate “safe” person(s) were gone and you had to face a couple days alone?
Sorry for long post or if this is too personal - felt the need to vent.
