Here’s a fun thing about generalized anxiety: you can’t be sure if a specific thing you’re upset about is the thing that triggered your anxiety or if you’re upset about that specific thing because of your anxiety, which wasn’t triggered by anything in particular. Good times!
I’m coming off of a multi-day run of generalized anxiety. When I’m in the throes of it, I feel like crying for no reason at all. When the anxiety has finally eased off, I feel like crying out of relief. At least I’m not uncomfortable with crying!
