    Humorous exchange between myself and anxiety

    Anxiety: My left hand is achy. Maybe I'm having a stroke.

    Me: Your strength is fine and your typing is fine. I don't think a stroke would result in an aching hand.

    Anxiety: I had this yesterday, too.

    Me: Wait - haven't you been shoveling snow for the last two days? And you're right handed, so it's a lot of work your left hand is not used to.

    Anxiety: Oh.

    Love this! I go through the same all the time! It's a great way of working through your knee jerk anxiety reaction.

    Ha love this too. I have been having similar convos with my anxiety.

    Anxiety: Hey so now that your colon cancer and oral cancer fears were recently disproven, maybe you should feel your neck for an enlarged lymph node.

    Me: Stoppppp. I’m starting to see how this works—once one worry goes away, you try to give me another worry to focus on. I’m just not biting.

    Anxiety: but don’t you sort of feel something on your neck?

    Me: If I did, it would just be hyper-awareness caused by you. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go try to enjoy my day.

    Anxiety: ooh can I come?

    Me: No.
