    My "long" posts fit on the screen so I can take a picture when that happens.

    True.

    I just like to be in control of myself. and anxiety has always been one thing that seems to take that away momentarily. It does eventually pass when I've rationalized my anxieties out and/or I'm too tired to continue carrying it on or I distract myself. I eventually hope to find solutions to it rather than just cover-ups.

    Well, a permanent solution would require a permanent change in perspective towards the things that cause your anxiety. You can achieve this by identifying and clarifying what those things are, and then gradually and consciously changing your reactions to them. What I do sometimes is anticipate my own reaction and prevent it from occurring consciously. It takes some willpower and discipline, but it keeps you in control of yourself.

    My mother (ESI) has horrible anxiety that can be triggered by just about anything. Although she can drive well enough, driving a car with her in the passenger seat is rather unpleasant (she gasps occasionally as if an imminent crash is going to happen).

    As far as I can tell she controls it with meds. It doesn't help that 75% of her family (other than her) is made up of Alpha NTs.

    This is valuable piece of info. I've been thinking whether one can buy some anxiety actually. I wouldn't have so many motorbike accidents.

    When I was like 17 I had a pretty bad anxiety problem, so I can relate. Some days I couldn't bring myself to go outside, and I would just stay in getting angry with myself. Shit sucked. Fearless now though ofc.

    sometimes i get an uneasy stomach and a sense of urgency like i need to be doing something, changing something, but my mind won't gather the focus for anything productive because its too agitated and i can't figure out what or why and all i can actually do is just wait for the feeling to be over. this is the reason i got into focusing on my breathing because its the one thing that seems to be useful when it happens.

    I still get these periods of panic from time to time. I just sit and and focus on the time, and on how in ten minutes time nothing bad will have happened, it's just my body being weird at that moment, but that's okay. I think removing yourself from the situation helps.

    WHAT ESI?

    Amber casts infinity of shadows, and my Avalon had cast many of its own, because of my presence there. I might be known on many earths that I had never trod, for shadows of myself had walked them, mimicking imperfectly my deeds and my thoughts.

    Yes, yes. Please you banned again and lul at demanding to not browse threads on a public forum, such private ownership, such entitlement, such psychosis. Anyway, people say I got not taste but I liek you, blacksheep. Your self-depreciating anxiety related "humour" and calling one useless is priceless. Carry on.

    Thanks @chriscorey for bumping this.

    I'm not unusually anxious. I get antsy while waiting for a situation to come to a head or when there's a false sense of calm or if there's any kind of uncertainty of course ... and I don't really like waiting ... but I really hate being anxious because it makes me USELESS and totally unable to focus. So I'm glad I'm not all that anxious naturally.

    I get overstimulated pretty easily when I'm out in public.

    This. It's a bit necessary for me to take some time to myself in private to wind down on a daily basis. Unfortunately, I don't always do this. I've also had some pretty bad anxiety issues since I was a kid. I didn't find out that it wasn't normal for people to take 2-3 hours for people to fall asleep until I was an adult. Apparently the average is 7 minutes. Man, someone just give me a hammer.

    I workout to get rid of my anxiety. Or do anything that makes me feel physically tired at the end of the day.

    I have a lot of social anxiety, I worry a lot about what other people think of me, I freak out about what people are trying to do or what they are doing... And when I'm alone, I think about all the wrongs others have done to me and it gets me anxious.

    Wow, that was some real talk, lol. Slightly graphic, but, I'm here to be honest.

    It's a constant struggle between what I want to do, what others want me to do, accepting or rejecting obligations, being stuck with unwanted obligations, being rushed and manipulated.
