This is one is about anxiety and trauma with a real life example and one or two things that you can do to get an understanding about its effects on your condition.

For some of us with an anxiety condition it is a short detour, it gets resolved.

For others we’ve been on this dang road a long time; some since childhood, our teens or early twenties. The good news is that there is treatment and you might have to make some lifestyle changes but you can feel better.

Just want to put that out there because not everybody gets depression the same way and there are different treatments. This is not a show about treating conditions like biochemical depression or some forms of PTSD.

For those conditions you will need the support of medical professionals. This show is more focused on the voice in many people's heads that is hyper-critical. There are some organic, mechanical and mental skills that can help to shut the hater up.

It is more about building a toolkit of resources when the voice is obnoxious. It is about deflating that power to attack you at a vulnerable point.

These are a few information sources and some ideas on the topic.

Everybody take a chill, either in a pool, in a theater or in a park; hopefully without an electronic device. We all have anger and if you have an anxiety or panic disorder you might not even know that you are ticked off angry.
