Hi Rachael, I just wanted to thank you for responding to my question a month or so ago. I didn't know how to calm my husbands fear (anxiety) about "other things" that shouldn't have affected him. He can't take anti-anxiety drugs but I have paid extra attention to his environment. He seems to become less concerned when I keep him updated on our surroundings and activities. Even though he can't always remember what we're doing or where we are going, telling him seems to satisfy him. Thanks!
