Waiting makes me very anxious , comes from a time when my dad would say to me "wait until we get home" which meant I had to wait hours before I got a thrashing and I would shake the whole time just wishing he would get it over with. Can you relate as an an adult to this feeling ?

I don't think I can ever get rid of this instantaneous anxiety I feel when I am made to wait. when someone says "I'll tell you later" it's such an awful feeling. When someone has bad news for me I say "tell me now" trying to stop someone delaying the inevitable. I feel the same palpitations now as I did when I was a kid.
