i read your blog every time you post and i feel so much for you and what you have been going through. the anxiety is not surprising in many ways - the change you are going to face is tough. in terms of sobriety you are going to be back in a place where there is alcohol around and all the triggers that were there before will be back, and your husband will be away just when you want him to be there. i hope it eases, but you are very strong and you will cope. hugs.
