Knowledge = Power!: Once u understand what we call "anxiety" & how it ticks, u might then be able 2recognize it & call it out. ("that's my anxiety talking.") and once u learn how 2reign it in, u'll then be in position 2 act once u feel it kicking in. Key things it does: keeps u believing something bad will happen; convinces u won't be able 2handle bad thing; gets u avoiding living, doing things. See www.Anxietybc.Org.
