Had a small fender bender at CVS

WEnt to get my meds, cvs pharmacy closed at 4 pm. No clue why. Was pulling out and, my fault, scraped a lady's car. We're both fine. Cops came and I called insurance.

It was the week from Hell.

Aspirin not helping.

2. Thanks

Poor lady was mad, she is right. But she kept rummaging around her car and I thought i might get shot. We started talking and it ended on a better note

13. Thank you

I hope so.

See, due to mental issues, things hit me very hard. I suffer from anxiety terribly. I can think of all sorts of things...

14. I'm the same way.

And it escalates super fast. It always takes me a long time to calm down and look at things in perspective. I usually would hug my dog but she died 2 years ago. So now I just freak out until I exhaust myself. It isn't anxiety, it's just my nature. Smoking indica seems to help at the time I need it the most.

15. This happens to me

I'm always in an anxious state, and, when something happens, it takes me a long time to get back to baseline. Mind goes off spinning all sorts of scenarios

16. I did several months of "mindfulness" training

to learn how to stop the speeding thoughts as soon as they start. You must acknowledge it and deal with it in a rational mindset. You may want to look into this.

I found it somewhat useful but it is also difficult to do when your mind and body are already going off the charts. It is considered to be a "life long battle" I have read in numerous publications over the years and I believe it is so, for myself anyway.
