Anxiety/Panic Disorders

Anxiety Disorders
Most people feel anxious and worried at times, especially when dealing with stressful situations like going on a job interview, public speaking, taking a test, etc. This sort of anxiety can make you feel alert and focused, helping you get things done faster or perform at your best.  For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The feelings can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school, and relationships.
With anxiety, you will also hear about the “fight or flight” response. We all have this natural response as a healthy trait. Without it we wouldn’t know what to do in a dangerous situation. It prepares your body to run away or fight.
The problem isn't your fight or flight system. The problem is your fight or flight system activating when no danger is present. It's when your fight or flight symptom is essentially

Show me how to live by Seven-teenth Show me how to live :iconseven-teenth:Seven-teenth 147 6
Perfect Child of God
Reality is an empty cradle, with a child already grown
Sat upon the carpet, to discover right from wrong
Stairway through a closet, made of styrofoam
Essence is an empty box, with the toys already gone
A stranded jewel hangs above, looking down from space
Fate is a darkened sky, with the stars all trapped in place
The morning arises, like a path already chosen
Fixtured up above, where everything is frozen
What I'm trying to say is, I hate everyone
Kill you with an axe, and rape your only son
There is a moment, when you go into bloom
And things once ignored, tear away your costume
What I'm trying to say is, I never hurt anyone
Damnation I once feared, will never actually come
I shall run forever, as of today
The air is now fresh, and staying that way
Your eyes seem to tell me, of sin that I've done
Yet my garden is full, of harmonious plumbs
Polite as strawberry honey, leaking on sheets
Dripping on verses, just to make them sweet
Blood in your hands, now yellow and green
Easter on parad

What is an HSP?
HSP means Highly Sensitive Person. It’s interchangeable with Emotionally Sensitive Person. The latest term for this is SPS (Sensory Processing Sensitivity).
I came across a book called The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine Aron ( roughly 15 years ago while researching other mental health topics. It peaked my interest immediately because I had never heard of it. As I read about it, I realized it described me perfectly. I purchased the book. She has come out with several other books. I own them all. 
This is a personality trait a person is born with. Someone else in your family is an HSP. This is an inherited trait. Myth: it is not a mental illness. At the time the book came out, it was said you cannot become an HSP later in life. This has proven to be false. During a mid-life crisis (that term doesn’t sit well with me), one starts to reanalyze their life. I remember doing this around 40. A change

"I embrace my desire to
I embrace my desire to
Feel the rhythm, to
Feel connected
Enough to step aside and
Weep like a widow, to
Feel inspired, to
Fathom the power, to
Witness the beauty, to

Bathe in the fountain, to
Swing on the spiral, to 
Swing on the spiral, to 
Swing on the spiral of
Our divinity and
Still be a human."

"Lateralus" - Tool


I'm throwing an update down, mostly to bury the anxiety-ridden Thanatophobia journal so it's not on my main page. I'm feeling much better now that I'm properly medicated again -- no more panic attacks, no more chest pain, no more sleepless nights. I'm back to functioning like a normal human being, and it's been a huge relief.

Zelda is 10 1/2 months old now, and it's hard to believe that it has been so long. She's crawling and getting into everything, eating a lot of the same foods we eat, and learning new things every day. It's hard to believe she was just 4 lbs when she was born; now she's pushing 20 lbs and trying her hardest to stand and walk.

In two days, one of my dreams will be coming true. :excited: On Saturday, I will finally be seeing Tool perform live. They're coming to Bangor as part of their spring/summer tour, and Eric got us a pair of really great tickets -- front section, row 25. It'll be my first real concert experience, and I'm actually more excited than scared. :lol: Words can't even begin to express what Tool means to me. Their music has been one of the few constants in my life. It was with me through the hell that was my father's house. It drowned out the sound of constant screaming and destruction when he was home. It was with me at the shelter, when I had no home, no stability. They have been with me through abuse, poverty, fear, uncertainty, and triumph. They have helped shape me into who I am today -- inspired me, gave me peace, made me feel, made me think, made me question. To share space with them even for a few hours....

Anyway... I've been writing again. A lot. Nothing that will ever be posted here, but it's made me feel a sense of wholeness that I have missed.

Thank you for the points! I hope to get enough to get 3 months of core before i run out.

Thanks for the watch!  Curious why it was given so randomly, however.  You like my literature?  Or is it my love of Avatar characters?

It was just on a whim. You're one of the forum regs I tend to agree with most. Plus, you have good taste in video games. Your Avatar love doesn't hurt either. :lmao:

I'm ashamed to admit I haven't had a chance to explore your gallery yet, but I plan to when I have some free time today. It's literally taken me half an hour to write this comment because I keep getting interrupted. :lol:

Thanks for the watch! You probably recognized me. :blush:

A kind little forum bird gave me your new name. :)
The-Angry-Lemon Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017  Hobbyist Writer
I'm glad to know that some people even care.

You're an actual nice person, in a forum that is quickly filling with trolls. It's gotten so bad just in the past month that even I've been considering leaving the forums, and I've been here almost as long as you've been alive. :P

If you do come back to the forums, I strongly suggest avoiding the Complaints forum. It's so incredibly toxic there (of course, Complaints regulars think that's "fun").
