I have noticed that my OCD really gets my anxiety flared up. I like routines and I like when my routines stay as close as possible daily. Unfortunately, change is a part of life. I am planning a short vacation that is now a week away. I couldn't wait to have some "me" time with no work but as the trip gets closer i feel like im walking a plank into a volcano instead of going on a relaxing vacation. I have had some major changes at work lately and in my personal life which has made my anxiety already high and as the trip gets closer I just can't settle down. Vacation should be fun and happy not a lingering nightmare. Okay sorry very long. I just needed to tell someone because no one I talk to on a daily basis understands. They all think im making it up or making it a BIG deal.
