So…maybe this is a weird thing to share but whenever I am feeling anxious about something…
I wiggle my toes.
I started noticing it as my mother’s health declined, and again as the frequency of my doctor visits and trips to the hospital increased. As soon as the needle came out or the waiting began, I realized that my toes would silently wiggle in my shoes. My mother used to hold her wrist to her forehead while propping her arm on an armrest or laying down.
