    My family, my dogs, gardening, crocheting and working. I also like NASCAR.
  1. I cannot figure out what does it for me. I have always been anxious but since my Mom passed away in 2004 it has gotten worse, and then my husband passed away in 2007 and it has gotten even more out of control. The doorbell ringing or a phone number calling that I do not know, my loved ones not answering their cell phones when I call, are all things that I can get me feeling bad, but then other times I get that way and do not know why. I almost forgot, financial obligations do it to me as well.
  2. To quiet my head I usually take a walk, read, clean or find someone to talk to me. If someone starts talking to me and I can get into the conversation, it does a lot to quiet my head. I have noticed that on days when I am busy, it is easier for me to stay calm and to banish those thoughts.
  3. I also like this song. I have a list of songs that I play when I am feeling kind of down and want to be cheered up and this one is one of them.
  4. I heard a lot of negative about it as well. I think what got me started watching was the fact that both of my kids were talking about it and said they watched. I was feeling a bit down one day when MTV happened to have a Jersey Shore marathon going on and I watched.
  5. Hi, it is nice to meet you. I have recently joined here and have found the people to be very nice. I think you will enjoy it. I also have anxiety, some days it is not too bad and other days it is terrible. Guess that is just to be expected. Have a great day.
  6. I like to be distracted. I do not really like to be alone during it, on the other hand I would rather be alone than have someone hug or comfort me. If someone can start talking to me about something that will distract me, that is the best for me.
  7. That is wonderful. You did a great job. I am so glad that you had fun and enjoyed yourself. I know how hard that can be. I don't like people looking at me either, it makes me uncomfortable. Congratulations again!!
  8. Hi Karen, It is nice to meet you. I look forward to getting to know you. I am a grandma too. I have a three year old grandaughter and a grandson that will be one on June 2. Take Care, Amanda
  9. I have had terrible eating habits for years and am now starting to eat better. I have started eating more fruits, cut out sugary foods and drinks. I do know that sugar makes me feel anxious so I am really trying to give it up. I have not been able to stop pasta and breads yet, but in time I do hope to do better. I used to drink coke all day and eat tons of sugary foods so I figure I am at least heading in the right directions. I will admit that even though it is has been at least six months, I still miss drinking coke. I also quit smoking and I think that I miss Coke more than cigarettes.
  10. I will have a drink every once in a while. Usually something that tastes fruity. I do not like the taste of alcohol, it has to be hidden. I do like Mike's Lemonade though I haven't had it in years.
  11. I used to read all the time. I always seem to be too busy to do much of that now. I have a shelf filled with books that I have not read and want to. The only thing that I am kind of reading right now is Sink Reflections. Maybe once I am done with that I will be so organized that I will have more time to read other books.
  12. My DIL keeps trying to get me into this show. I am not sure why I can't get into it but so far I can't. I might give it another try though. I believe that it is on Netflix so I can catch up with what is going on.
  13. I also enjoy NCIS. I cannot really weight in on whether Kate or Ziva is better, as I only started watching towards the end of Kate's part on the show. I do love Gibbs and Abby as well. I watch NCIS LA but agree that it is not as good. I am not sure what it is but something about the show just doesn't draw me in as much.
  14. I have been wanting to see this movie. I thought it looked cute too. I think our cable company has it on demand. I usually don't buy the movies on there but this one caught my attention. I might check it out. My granddaughter loves animals so she might like to watch with me. Thanks for the review.
  15. I was shocked about Vinne having anxiety issues. He does come across as someone who is calm and relaxed. Guess that goes to show, you never really know how someone is feeling on the inside. I do like Jersey Shore which surprised me. I am a Vinnie and Pauly D fan. I watch the Pauly D project as well.
