Are you me? 

I have anxiety problems too — every time anything happens to me, anything good, bad, fun, exciting, nervewracking, etc. it overtakes me. I love to travel (and to some extent do it anyway) but for at least the first hour or so I feel like I’m gonna die. I hate cars and buses, they amplify the effect. Planes are a little better (flying isn’t fun but I’d rather do it than a bus) and trains are legit soothing. 

I’m super super super super nervous about this whole wedding business. I’m excited to get all dolled up and take pictures and visit family and everything, but I won’t pretend I wish we could just elope sometimes. Like you, I know I’d regret it. Originally I wanted to have a really small wedding, really casual, but FH so badly wants something that will let him show off a little…

We’re compromising in the middle (small guest list, semi-grand setup) but it’s still hard and scary. Even just that I’m flying 14 hours to GET to my wedding. I think we can both do it!

@WhiteIris:  I just started vitamin D! I’ll post something if it seems like it’s helping after awhile.

Here is a little more info:

“A recent study of about 63,700 college students found that five times as many young adults are dealing with high levels of anxiety as in the late 1930s.”

“The vitamins, minerals and other compounds in food act almost like medications on the brain,” says Gómez-Pinilla. Australian research recently found that women who ate a whole-foods diet, with lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat and fish, were 32 percent less likely to experience anxiety” …

Most of our foods show these same vitamin decreases over the years. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2001/images/mar2001_vegetables_04.jpg

Do a little bit of Google research – Here is the article quoted above: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39335628/ns/health-mental_health/t/why-are-anxiety-disorders-among-women-rise/#.UPgsf8XNkyk

Watch a few food documentaries. Foodmatters is a good documentary… it’s on Netflix. A lot of them are on Netflix.
