The following quote accurately describes the women in my family to a T (possibly better known as undiagnosed Generalized Anxiety Disorder).

“I keep my eyes on the sea, waiting to be rocketed into it on a wave of fire.  I’ll be ready for it to happen and that way it won’t happen.  It’s a burden, being able to control situations with my hyper-vigilance, but it’s my lot in life.”

– Tina Fey, Bossypants

Well put, Tina Fey.
