It's probably not something to worry about, but it crossed my mind today and I really gave it some thought. Although never diagnosed, I always felt I had some kind of 'anxiety' issues. Now, everyone has moments where anxiety controls their body, I understand that. I don't think this is something that I need 'help' with, but a better understanding of why I feel this way would help. I was raised by a single parent (mother) and only have 1 sibling (identical twin brother). We've never been the kind of family who sticks to exact times, exact plans, and normal routines (dinner time, lunch time, curfews, etc). For some reason I get extremely nervous when my brother goes out. Not because he's had issues with the law or anything, but just 'nervous'. We're 22, we both party pretty hard, are always out enjoying ourselves.. but for some reason, if he goes out and doesn't come back in a short amount of time I get worried. Not a "I hope he's okay" worried, it's an uncontrollable "WTF IS GOING ON" feeling. I personally have NO REASON to think something is up.. yet, I get these 'feelings'. If I call his cell and he doesn't answer, it only makes things worse in my head. I always fear the worse, as opposed to hoping for the better.. or just letting things happen. I'm an optomist(sp?) if I do say so myself. I lead a positive life with normal routines, nothing out of the ordinary.. yet, when my brother isn't home I automatically feel like something is wrong. Yeah, I'm over reacting, and each time I start getting these feelings he strolls in like nothing happened (and it didn't). This is the easiest example that comes to mind as it happens just about daily.. there are many more situations I could list, but I just wanted to give everyone an idea to better help my viewers understand. If this doesn't make sense, I'll gladly clarify..
