Worry: In 100 Words or Less

When I really worry about something,
I don’t just fool around.
I even have to go to the bathroom
when I worry about something. 
Only, I don’t go. I’m too worried to go. 
I don’t want to interrupt my worrying to go. 
The Catcher in the Rye. Holden Caulfield in Chapter 6.

“There’s nothing you can do about it.” 
“That’s why I’m worrying.” 
“Don’t you care? It doesn’t mean enough for you to even worry!” 
“How does worrying help?” 
“You don’t get it. At least I’m doing something!” 
“Hmmm…Oookay. ”
