  • Attacking anxiety

    I suffer from a chronic disease and recently had a flare up, albeit a mild one.

    I’m a hypochondriac, and in my case the disease manifests itself as anxiety. It started shortly after my husband had open-heart surgery six years ago
    this month. An elephant came and sat on my chest and refused to budge, and then strange, random twinges started twingeing and I could feel my heart beating, which is normally a good thing, except when I paid close attention to it, it would beat faster, which scared me, which made it beat even faster.

    The state’s first forester, for example, wrote a century ago that most people “wondered why anyone should be concerned about the forests.”  It was considered such a never-ending resource back then that even massive wildfires - which burned a half-million acres alone in 1880 - could not sway public opinion.
