There is a lot of good news in your post tonight. DAY 16!! YAY!
Unfortunately, the nervousness does happen, it is a common withdrawal symptom and like all of them it will pass but for now the getting through it...
I don't know what you've been trying over the last hour or so, but just in case you haven't done these.. I will list off some options.
It is always a good idea, to just sit, close your eyes, consciously relax your neck, shoulders and jaw and sink into wherever you are sitting. Then, take in a nice deep breath in through your nose for a count of 5 and exhale out of your mouth to the count of 7. Try to focus your thoughts only on the breathing and the counting. Most people have to do this several times to feel more grounded and less nervous.
It helps to drink a soothing hot beverage that isn't caffeinated. It can help to have a shower or a bath, do some gentle stretches and listen to really soft soothing music. Some people journal it all out ocean, maybe posting helped too?
So, those are a couple of ideas that I do hear frequently to try to help.
I hope you are feeling better ocean,
