High Anxiety

Tuesday, July 21, 2009
My anxiety level has been off the charts since the burglary. It really is one of those things that is difficult to get off my mind. I awake thinking about it and I go to sleep thinking about it. Last night I tried to read but found it incredibly difficult to focus. Each day, the anxiety subsides just a bit, and knowing that the police are actively and aggressively investigating has helped to ease my mind.

I'm still focusing on exercising and eating healthy. For more details on my progress, read here. I'm no longer paranoid about leaving the house, so I've been getting the kids out and about to their activities and the playground and beach.

I can't stop zeroing in on what a huge invasion of our privacy the burglary was. What kind of person breaks into some one's home in broad daylight? Who is so desperate to do something like that? I just don't understand it. Worse yet, the police suspect that it was one of our neighbors...someone who was aware of my comings and goings and knew that my schedule is regular on Wednesdays. How sad is that...a neighbor? So very pathetic.
