This picture makes me laugh eveytime I see it. But it’s also a great reminder of one of the first tools I learned in therapy. Lable the feeling as anxiety and move on. See before I found out about my disease, I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to figure out why I was anxious. Doing that would wind me up, or convince me I was more stressed about a situation than I really was. Rick worked with me to say “oh this is anxiety. It is a result of the chemistry in my brian. Do some breathing and continue with your day”
Does it make the anxiety go away? No. But it does help manage it.
