I think my troubles lately stem from tr stress of our upcoming trip. We will be going to visit my family in Europe. They live on the beach. Everyone there is really skinny. I've had to do lots of shopping for summer clothes because I've avoided buyig any for years and can't stand my old clothes anymore. That's a lot of stressful time spent in fitting rooms trying on bathing suits, shorts, dresses and other revealing summer clothes. It's easier to shop for winter that's for sure lol. I also have a fear of flying which is getting worse as I age. Every time I think about our impending trip which includes a couple of layovers (with a toddler!) my heart starts to race. I'm coping any way I can.
