I joined in a couple of decluttering events - with thedeclutteringqueen.com. It has been so lovely - destressing for sure!

I tend to hide my anxiety under my shoulder blades. I also get itchy.

Like you said about reframing as being exciting, I have framed these as my super powers. My anxiety and PTSD has always driven me to get assignments completed days before they were due. It has served me so well as a Program Manager to be ahead of the curve :-)

10% Happier is a great book about a broadcaster who experienced a panic attack on air and wrote a book about it.

I try to keep some practices that help me - walk 5-6 miles a day, check in with friends or family who make me laugh., spend time cooking ro reading - things I love. I KNOW I need this and build it in the day.

When I first experienced panic attacks I just thought I was “going crazy” and didn’t want to tell anyone. It was tremendously scary. It went on for an entire year before I ended up in the hospital…in Bosnia. My brother (a doctor) asked me why I had never shared. I didn’t realize it was a thing.

I ran 3 marathons and 2 1/2 marathons to run myself into the ground so I would be fully exhausted and be able to sleep. It was a form of self medication that I had to learn how to manage.

I have a really hard time too with racing and repetitive thoughts. yes! obsessive rumination is definitely it!

In education we call those "teachable moments" We don't try to reason with students when they are in a point of anxiety/humiliation/wrong doing we wait until the student is comfortable and then we address their needs because they are calm and able to listen. As a parent to a kid with autism/anxiety/ocd/adhd, it has been a life saver :-)
