Hi, i'm new here. You can call me Dotty. I too have a great deal of anxiety but I know some of it comes from a problem stemming from an operation I had in the past. Now that I am older it's worst because I don't get out enough and I don't get out enough due to lack of funds at the moment. But I believe I am handling my anxiety now to some extent because I've learn to encourage myself. I am a very spiritual person, a Christian and know without a doubt that it has contributed to my managing my anxiety.
