Sometimes, anxiety gives you reasons to laugh at yourself. This is one of those times.
A vague text is an anxious person’s Achilles heel and this one sent me spiraling directly to the linen closet.
Has this ever happened to you?

Sara: [00:00:00] Welcome back to Why Am I Anxious Today? The podcast that kind of really sort of doesn’t at all answer the question that I hate getting the most about my anxiety. So I feel like the last couple days I’ve been really negative, um, and kind of super serious. And I mean, anxiety and mental health is definitely a serious issue, but there are so many times where it just gives me reason to just laugh at myself.
And I’m going to share one of the recent. So if you’re the kind of person who can get a vague text message and just go on with your day, I envy you because I cannot, whether it is from a friend or especially if it’s from someone work related, I cannot get a vague text and not just have to immediately have all of the information.
Start hyperventilating if it’s seems like something [00:01:00] serious and I’m not getting all the information. And the other day, this was just taken to the most pathetic level I’ve ever experienced. I recently made a new friend and I also know her boyfriend, and I am Facebook friends with her b. and out of nowhere he sends me a DM and all it says is I have a question, and it all went downhill from there in my mind because I immediately just like start preparing my speech about how she doesn’t need him.
She’s better than this and she deserves better. When I tell you, I started changing the bedding in my guest room because they live together and my first thought was this guy is [00:02:00] DMing other girls and like her friends know less. That is unacceptable. She needs to get out of that house. She needs to get out of that relationship.
But with this is all happening within maybe five. Between him sending me question or saying he has a question and getting his response to me saying, what’s up? His question was about microphone recommendations because he remembered me saying, I worked in podcasting, y’all. I changed the sheets in the guest room.
Wanted microphone, recomme. Moral of the story is I lent him a microphone and also I need to check my ego, I guess, because I thought he was hitting on me and also what is wrong [00:03:00] with me . So that gave, that caused a major anxiety moment for me that was completely unwarranted. If anyone else has had a just complete spiral from a vague text, I would love to hear it because I can’t be alone in this.
