I had the same experience, thinking why I am so stressed and anxious in a Walmart hunting for toilet paper and chicken wings and coffee filters? I came home exhausted. But the environment that we walk into, willingly, should be avoided. Respect yourself, respect that stress and anxiety is actually built into America and Capitalism and life. Remember too, this is a extraordinary stressful time we’re in, so give your self permission to feel that anxiety, give it name. All my love and respect. I wish you calm. I have posted before that meditation helps, its easy to do, us with ADHD often just walk into a pitbull fight thinking we’re walking into the woods. love again!
