60. It's not really something that's tangible...

There's no one thing that I can pin down. As I explained below I go through the day with a very high general background level of anxiety. Little things will add to it. I get an assignment that I don't immediately understand, a question throws me off for a bit, I'm surprised by the fact that I don't remember some detail from last year, I don't ace something that I feel should be a strong suite for me, etc... The anxiety builds through the day as these things pile up. Then of course there's the fact that I'll take on whole assignments in my head as one giant single task that must be done, instead of the 100 small steps it actually is. This leads to more anxiety. Eventually I have something of a break down and I'm a total mess for a few hours. I feel much better after but even then the anxiety begins to grow again making it difficult to hunker down and study and do the work which is what I really need to do to make some of this go away.
