I have mellowed with time. I used to worry that if I didn't worry then something really bad would happen. Like the worrying would keep it from happening. Does that make sense?

OP- I think its funny you are a worrier and your Dis name is Lo-Key

For day to day things I'm generally not a worrier. A few tramatic events have happened in my life, and I think I realized that you end up worrying about stuff that never happens and the worrying doesn't stop the really bad stuff from happening. Plus most of the really horrible stuff you never worry about because its unimanginable. When/If I do start to worry about something I can shut it down pretty quickly.

However, I do have a few phobias, I hate flying and prefer to drive rather than be a passanger... so while in those situations I do worry. I think its because in those situations I feel like someone else has control of my life and well-being. We each have our own things.

Yes, like other posters, I am a worrier and DH is not And like one poster said, if I do find everything is going well, I worry about being content- it's a vicious circle!

Yes, I'm a worrier. I get it from my Nana who was the Queen of Worry.

I also worry more about small stuff than big stuff. Strange. And, if I do not have anything to worry about, I'll create it. I'm so "good" at worrying. Ugh. The Bible tells us not to worry and it is one of my biggest struggles--turning the worry over and not being a control freak. Lots of scripture about worry for sure--I guess the Good Lord knows it is a huge struggle for some. It is definitely something I have to work on.

Yes, now I am. Not so when I was younger. Now I worry about bills, money, and a whole bunch of what if's. What if my jeep breaks down? What if that big tree in the backyard gets blown down during one of these big storms we get? What if I ever need a new roof, furnace, any other big appliance. What if's are a killer for me. What if the weather is bad and I am afraid to drive home. The list goes on.

Yes. I constantly worry that the worst possible thing I can think of is what is going to happen. And when it doesn't, I move on and start worrying about the NEXT worst possible thing that could happen. It really causes a lot of unnecessary stress.

Somewhat..... I mostly worry about my kids' safety and well being. I also worry when we go on a trip, that someone is going to get sick and I also worry about the drive. I don't feel like I over worry, but I have been told several times, by several family members "you worry too much"

Not at all. I literally do not have a care in the world and it is a wonderful feeling.

No. I don't struggle with anxiety and worry at all, but I am surrounded by people who are: students, family, colleauges and friends.

OP, I would think if you are worried that your worry is going to kill you, then you may be in need of help with coping with your excessive worry.

Best of good health to all, Tiger

Use to worry a lot, have pretty much given it up. Highly recommend giving it up.

I'm a worrier and I wish that I had realized sooner that I would make my DD one, too, if I didn't work harder at not showing my worry.

So I've passed it along to her and I feel like I've given her a terrible burden to start her life with.

There's a healthy amount of worry (it's what makes us save money for emergencies/retirement, buy insurance, etc) and there's an unhealthy amount that causes us to be preoccupied with negative possible outcomes when we should be enjoying our lives.
