The fact that I am around 70% emotionally and mentally disabled, means I continue to live with anxiety. If I was to place my anxiety on a scale of 1-10, I would probably place it at around 6 or 7.
It is my neurological impairments that trigger my anxiety. I then have to deal with the thoughts that accompany it, my physical reactions to it and the strong urge that leads to panic if the issue I have, isn’t dealt with quickly.
But anxiety and how we deal with it isn’t that straight forward. A lot of how we are conditioned in our early years, adds to how we cope with psychological triggers as an adult. In the early years, our values, morals and life experiences become the foundations for how we interpret and deal with every day issues.
Although it’s gone on to take me years to understand my sensory input and how my brain works because of my disability, it has taken me even longer to understand how best to work things through. Our intuition, together with a positive belief system, is the key to us working positively through my triggers, keeping our perceptions positive.
When it comes to our perceptions it’s easy to let go, to lose sight of the very essence of what is our life.
