WTF - Undifferentiated Anxiety

I've had this odd feeling of undifferentiated anxiety since about Monday. I can't really explain it because it doesn't seem to have roots into anything. Thankfully, after Monday, I've been able to mostly put it aside. After all, what's the point of being anxious if my anxiety doesn't give me any targets. I know myself well enough that I know I'm not just not recognizing it, it generally does seem to be undifferentiated. How useless.

I can't say that I have it completely under control though. As an example, I'm scheduled to go to the Seattle Aquarium with some friends of mine today. I want to go but I don't know if I'm up for it. For some reason, the thought of doing so is causing me dread and I want to hide. I'm still not understanding where I'm at lately.

One of the interesting bits about this undifferentiated anxiety is the defenses against it. For example, I have the icon for this post on a t-shirt. Wearing a shirt with a depiction of a shield with a wolf on it seemed to make me feel safer and more in control. It's not unexpected but it's still a fun insight into my psychology.
