    you should get a job and

    - get married, and have kids, and get a car, and go to the gym. You are just in a bad cycle. You should stop your medication as it isn't helping much so you maybe don't need it.

    Surprise Eye-Contact Fear

    Just moved to a new place and an anxiety I've had since I was a child has returned. As I'm in my room, I'm always terrified that I'll look at my door and see a small face peering around the door. The biggest fear of this (I have a clear picture of this situation and to it as I type) is that...

    To Live is to Risk.....

    I have found in my own personal journey that life is about taking risks. If you take risks you find surprises because much of the time what you thought might happen simply doesn't happen as you thought it would. Many times the opposite happens. I am only saying that is what I have experienced...
