Well Educated Professional Woman's Anxiety and Worry 

An intelligent, educated professional woman is anxious.  Her meals last as long as the movie she is watching. Her sleep is disrupted. She's not interested in sex with her husband. She can't see how to make a safe and secure future for her children.
