Why have I become a ‘Fretting Freda’ all of a sudden?
I seem to have become so paranoid over the past few months, I sit and fret about everything. If my daughter (of 24!) goes out,I worry that something awful might happen and cant rest until i know she is back safe, even if she has only popped to the shops. I worry that I may have left electrical appliances on, like the iron or my hair straighteners and have to go and double check all the while. I was even worried the other night when i thought my husband had been in the bath too long and thought he may have fallen asleep and drowned!! Seriously!! – Not only that, but i also play out the whole scenario in my head.
Its so irrational and its even worse at night when I’m lying in bed not being able to sleep – my imagination really runs riot then. I used to be so practical and sensible about things, I hardly recognise myself these days.
Anyone else the same? – Please tell me it gets bette
