LISTENER QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

In this episode I take questions from listeners.  Some questions came in as voice messages on my Anchor podcast page.  Others were submitted on Instagram.  I wasn’t able to answer all the questions because I only have 30 minutes or so for each episode, but I did my best to answer questions that were asked by multiple people.  I hope you find it helpful.

Questions With Timestamps

2:47 – A listener with multiple diagnoses (GAD, OCD and depression) is unsure how to respond to different symptoms.  Her confusion is knowing which diagnosis a symptoms belongs to, and therefore what we should do in response.

8:25 – A listener asks what she can do to stop herself from turning a bad day into an entire bad week.  When she hits a bad day, she will obsess over it, digging herself into a deep hole that she really doesn’t want to be in.

13:05 – “Do we really have to do nothing when panic comes?  Is distraction seen as “cheating”?

15:42 – “What are exposures for GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder)?

18:34 – “How do you deal with being agoraphobic and people doing things for you?”

20:44 –  “How do I stop myself from worrying about having that one huge panic attack that I won’t be able to handle.  I worry that this one giant panic attack will finally break me and I will wind up in a psych ward.”

26:43 – “Name one positive that anxiety has given you (remember, the lessons are in the shit!).”

30:08 – “My anxiety disorder makes me think that I can’t make long term plans until I’m recovered.  Any advice for that?”
