Yes. Very much so.

I also have mild OCD. It drives the entire family (including myself) batty!

I don't know if I should class myself as a worrier or a pessimist. I usually just expect the worst possible thing will happen. Of course, that worries me. But when things DO get bad, I think us pessimists are better at rolling with the punches than the optimists, because things are almost never as bad as we've imagined them. And of course, all our surprises are good ones!

I will disagree that pessimists are better at dealing with issues than optimists.

That is the exact opposite of how it usually works. Most pessimists have other personality or emotional issues that make dealing with day to day life a problem. You throw in a crisis, and it usually spells disaster, as pessimists struggle immensely because of their doom and gloom attitude, lack of hope and ability to see a positive outcome.

I am not. My mom is one of the worst worriers of all time and she drives me so crazy that I swore I would never be a worrier. She worries about nothing. Her latest one is what the mailman thinks about my dad since the sports illustrated came. I mean she is so worried about it she has called me about it and everytime I am over there she is sitting looking at it worried what the mailman must be thinking.

I sometimes get anxious when riding as a passenger in a car (2x have been in bad accidents with someone else at the wheel) but other than that - not so much. For the most part I'm pretty good at letting go of things that are out of my hands.

Tell her that if the SI came in a plastic wrapper, the mailcarrier thought, "Darn!" And if it did not, *he* read it on his break before he stuck it in the mailbox!!

I'm not, but my husband is. It has been getting increasingly worse and driving me insane.

I'm not a worrier. If something happens that I can control, I'll do what needs to be done. If it's something out of my control, I let it roll over me.

For example, the weather. Why worry about whether it will rain or snow tomorrow? Plan for the worst, and be grateful if it doesn't happen. This is a simplistic example, but you'd be surprised at how many people worry about it.

I have a lot of anxiety. Before I found the right treatement my life was one big ball of worry day and night. Not too much now, unless I'm not sleeping. Once my sleep gets disrupted for more than 2 days, the anxiety comes back with a vengence.

Like I always say, "Better living through chemistry!"
