Ok, apparently I am mental.
Well, that sounded harsh. Turns out, I have just realized I have an anxiety problem. The more I think about this, I realize that much of my childhood (and teenage years) were also affected by this. It's kind of creepy to realize that you've been living with something like this for a long time.
The way I have come to realization with this is not really important.
Back to this anxiety thing.
I was informed that there are ways of "taming" this issue without the use of medication. I'd like to avoid chemicals, that's for sure. Since my anxiety problem is not crippling me (yet), I am assuming it is possible to deal with it.
I wrote "chronic" in the topic because I think it is getting worse with time.
I know certain aspect of my life affect it, like stress and stuff. But most of that stress I think is self-imposed. But that's a different topic, and it touches O.C.D. a little.
I am seeing a profesional about this. Kinda. I'd like to stay away from that angle for now.
What I'd like to know is if any of your brilliant people have a similar issue. Did you work it out?
Is it an on-going mental battle? I am assuming it is, as there's probably no cure for this.
Yeah, let's start with that.
PS: I don't know if you noticed, but over the years Gabe has posted clues that he suffers from OCD/Anxiety. A famous post I remember had something to do with him going away on events like conferences and stuff. He gets stressed by the unfamiliar to a point that it cripples him. Anyway, thought it would be cool to link this topic back to PA.
