艾莉： I’我今天有很多焦虑，这是胡扯，因为我今天早上走路/慢跑了将近5英里，这应该可以帮助我放松。焦虑/紧张是我的第一触发因素。我通常的解决方法是：第一：喝酒；第二：运动；第三：读书。 Fuuuuuuuck。它’今天是美好的一天，我的生活总体来说还不错，我’我仍然很痛苦。有什么建议吗？
我： is 您r anxiety directed at anything that’s happening now? or are 您 worried about later? just sit with now for a minute. is there anything happening right this minute that is scary or gross or difficult? got both arms and legs attached? no bear in the room?
If 您r body is having a ‘feeling’, that doesn’t mean it is in reaction to anything. It’s just ‘misfiring’ because it thinks there’s a threat to 您, 但 there isn’t. look around. is there anything scary happening right now?
您’re smart to reach out and to ask questions. take a minute and figure out if there’真的很着急。或者如果’s a mis-firing. 您r brain got confused. no bear 这里.
艾莉: I feel much better. Thank 您. The whole idea of the brain misfiring is a 新 way to think about anxiety for me and it makes a lot of sense. Working all day today. Keeping busy will be a really 好 thing. Thanks again for 您r help. Day 6 清醒.
soon after i took a flight to my hometown and the plane flew through a thunder storm and i had a super large anxiety attack. When the plane landed for a brief stopover (back in the days when 您 could get off the plane and walk around the departure lounge between flights), i just couldn’t get back on the plane to continue the flight. and lemme tell 您, if 您 decide 您 can’t get back on a flight where 您 have a seat, and 您r luggage is loaded, and the rest of the plane is boarded — well they don’不要对这种行为太过喜欢。
[holy christ belle, 您’re long-winded …是的，这持续太久了，我突然有很多话要说，所以我’明天继续]
