Not To Put Too Fine A Point On What Anxiety Can Do To Your Brain But...



Oh well. Between my children and my phone, I can almost function.

    Miss Mary I've read so long but never commented. This post makes me smile so much. My sweet Mama passed away 2 years ago from a massive aneurysm and the quick, seemingly mundane conversations like this one with your Lily are what I miss the most. You, such a good Mama to yours and your kids so kind and loving to you. Such good, sweet things to read on a Monday morning! Rebecca

  2. I function with reminders at work in Outlook and at home in my phone. As soon as I make a damn appt I have to put it in my calendar. And then I have to put a reminder in there the day before that tells me it's coming up tomorrow.

  3. As Rebecca said, thee conversation remind me the conversations I had with my mom. And yes, I miss these funny little conversations as well. My mom used to get so upset when she forgot things! I remember once she started crying because she could not remember the name of my cousin's new baby. I started to laugh which made her cry even harder.

  4. Hi, I just want to say that I think you are amazing. I'm so sorry for your struggles, but you struggle so HONESTLY and fairly and compassionately. I believe you are deeply a good person. But you deserve some relief from the very real pain you feel. I wish I knew what that relief should be, but I know that somehow you will find a way. I believe that people who have been through what I believe you have been through as children get "activated" neurologically in a way that most children do not. Any new thought or feeling or experience can reactivate those neurological pathways and cause anxiety. The scientists are just beginning to understand this. Anyway, I'm so sorry about the suffering. You deserve great happiness. Love, Anon Suz
