There is more than one way to deal with anxiety. One is to focus less on it, and the other is talking about it. Both ways seem to have beneficial rewards for some. I, personally lean towards not focusing on anxiety and symptoms. Of course, being here on the forum daily, I am reminded of anxiety, symptoms, and the pitfalls of dealing with it. If one is hypersensitive to anxiety-talk and issues, perhaps less attention given to it may benefit them more. I, on the other hand, am not where I use to be several months back, in the height of my worse ever anxiety and depression life, afraid, alone, hypersensitive to anxiety discussion, and seeing and expecting only the worse in everything and every situation.
Today I am feeling near recovered, with the occasional stress and strains, which, of course, is part of everyones life, anxiety disorder, or not. I can talk about anxiety and everything it entails without feeling panicked or freaking myself out. If I was to indulge on anxiety topics, especially the sensitive issues, a few months back, I would find myself feeling afraid, highly anxious, panicked, or freaking out!
What works for one may not work for another. As the saying goes, "there's more than one way to skin a cat."
Kudos on finding solutions.
