been feeling pretty unwell these past two months. fingers crossed its easing now. i know how to deal with the anxiety part, to sit with it. for years ive been told to distract myself, when in an anxious situation. a number of medical professionals would tell me this, and i obeyed.
until last year a clinician treating me for an eating disorder, told me to sit with it, ask yourself why its happening. listen to your body. i know we all read this in books. and when the panic comes the need to make yourself feel better overrides common sense. i need some courage.
