Dont ever read the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz. Its about a guy who can see ghosts. It does have humor in it but is also scary too.

Thanks. That is too long and I wouldnt know when 4 minutes have passed unless I set a timer. I guess Ill see how many times works before I feel some results.

Ive found not looking at the clock when Im awake late at night is helpful. In that case ignorance is bliss. Otherwise I will think how Ive been awake a certain number of hours and theres a certain number of hours before I get up. And I have to get to sleep before this time, etc. Then Id lie awake fuming over my upstairs neighbor, this building, this city, and this country. The guy above me takes longer showers than I do and it has to be late at night. And its annoying how he turns the water on and off and on and off a few times. THEN finally runs it for the shower. I wish hed run it all at once for a few minutes, torturing me all at once and not bit by bit.

Watching commercial TV is giving me anxiety cause of a certain anti-smoking ad that airs around this time every year. Im glad streaming is an option or itd be a lot worse.

I am trying to keep myself as calm as possible. It isn't easy but trying various things does seem to make a difference. There are times, though, when none of my tricks work.

My anxiety is tricky, it's just a rising tide of guilt. It's very effective and a lot smarter than I am.

I've been getting panic attacks again. I don't even know why. It's like they come out of nowhere. I guess I will talk to my Pdoc about them next month. Otherwise my anxiety is high but that is pretty normal for me. I do a lot of breathing exercises.

Horrible anxiety for a number of reasons (anhedonia, for one). Can't stand this!

Right now the anxiety is towards painful. I'm trying so hard to turn this ship around, so to speak.

I'm not sure this new anxiety medication is helpful. It doesn't seem to kick in fast enough.

Nothing helps and drs/therapists don't want to talk about it. A Dr in the hospital 30 yrs ago yelled at me cause I told him I was anxious. He threw down his book and yelled at me.
I see Johns Hopkins has an anxiety clinic (but they never helped me, either. They told me to use mindfulness and refused to give me meds).

I saw (or rather heard) the beginning of that creepy smoking ad again. Honestly, if it werent for my endless need to see Drew, Id be streaming everything and not watching commercial TV at all.
