Living 30 years in high panic mode has messed some parts of me permanently. The damage is done. Some of it is physical - like that jaw muscle that won't relax - and some is psychological. Persistent panic has put me in a sort of brain fog that undermines my true potential in many ways.
Panic has been making me do irrational things - be impulsive - and THAT my friends is not good! Gives you wrinkles before wrinkles are supposed to make an entry. I have been throwing rage fits, saying all sorts of things, bubbling inside in anger, letting panic impact my health, and the list is endless.
