Re: Panic season coming up!!
I always experience more anxiety in the winter. I have no idea why. It usually starts to kick up around October (when it starts getting chilly outside where I live) and sticks around until March or April. It has to have something to do with the weather.
Hang in there though, you know you can make it through it and winter will be over with before you know it.
As for bad memories, my mom's bday is in December, so that is tough, but I use a lot of self talk to turn those memories in to something positive instead of negative, thus helping with my anxiety.
My thoughts are with you,
