I have this problem, usually after something “good” happens.  Oh, you got a raise?  Fridge is gonna die.

Oh, they caught OBL?  Time to stock the coffers get a CCW Permit.

HFI indulges my occasional bouts of paranoia, helping me draw up a list of things we need for our “oh dear god the world is ending” supply. 

Usually after a few days, I seem to calm down.

Yes, I am pretty sure I need some type of anxiety meds. Or therapy. Or both!

Growning up my family struggled a lot. My dad passed away suddenly, we struggled constantly with money, there was tons of family drama. It just always seemed like when things settled…something else bad would happen. To this day I constantly worry about things. And if something good happens, I worry that it will quickly be taken away or something horrible will happen.

Yup…definetly need meds and therapy.

Yep but mine is the cluster of three fear.

One bad thing is always followed by two more for me it seems

Fiance should have been home early this week but the army isn’t sending him home until the weekend, which eats into our time together before he deploys and means he misses meeting my family who is in town Sat

Then… I get home to an email that army is moving up deployment date and instead of July first he is now leaving June 16th..  wow.

So I’m waiting for the third thing..

I trip over the dog bed and fall into the couch, palm down… right on to the keyboard of my laptop… killing it.

 

But at least I’m done for a little bit with bad shit happening I think.

I always think this too.  FI and I used to be long distance (for two years in fact!) and I would always worry about him crashing and dying on the 3 hour drive home from visiting me!

When we first moved into our apartment together it was right after a summer of long distance.  The entire time we were apart I was convinced he was going to die before we ever got to move in together.

Now we just moved to an amazing new apartment and I’m once again convinced something terrible is going to happen because things are looking so good!

I am also terrified one or both of us will die right before our wedding 🙁

Funny, I only ever worry so much about him.  About pretty much everything else I am completely mellow.  I guess I just keep thinking he’s too good to be true, and something bad must be about to happen that will take him away for good 🙁

Yes, I think I need therapy too, haha!
