Maybe you can come up with a project (train for a marathon or something) to focus you. I noticed my anxiety peaked when I had to stop working out due to a leg injury.
I am no insurance expert, but getting bought out by an entity takes a LONG time. Even if you are bought out tomorrow, there is a process they will have to go through of due diligence, merging, etc, not to mention group insurance open windows (which are usually this and next month)...once it locks for the year, it would be very strange for them to suddenly announce no one has the same insurance they just locked in. Even if they get bought, you are probably good on your insurance through the next window -- it would probably take a year to change. But yes, it depends on your open window. You may want to check on that -- ask when the enrollment window is.
Definitely look into some physical and mental conditioning for your anxiety, cause cycling just makes it all worse! I like Dr. Thompson because it is just music that floats in the background, you can even have it on while you work or cook, and it resets your brain waves in such a way that it induces calm. Maybe its hokum, but there is a good theory behind it and I find it relaxes me.
