Worrying Too Much About Anything.

Sat, Jul 23rd 2011

Hi! I have never been to a psychiatrist and never took any medication or anything. I just want to ask if what is really wrong about me.

I'm a thinker. I think a lot and worry about almost anything. For example, news on t.v. about wars or bombing or disaster makes me sad. I think and worry about life, my future and even death. I worry about my husband, his health and safety each day. I'm afraid of being alone someday and getting old and nobody to take care of me.

I am a very religious person, I'm Catholic, and I worry about how can I do good to please God? I've been alone all day at home for years. I spend most of my time reading, watching t.v.,doing computers, cleaning the house, cooking, baking and gardening.

I feel like my head is going to explode. I want my brain to calm down and relax a bit. I do not watch many sad events on t.v., anymore. I sleep with a little light in my room because I'm afraid about having bad dreams and when I open my eyes it's dark. Is something wrong with me or is it just normal to feel this way.

Please help. Regards, Gina
