I never thought of my condition in simple lay terms, but it means a lot to me to identify myself with the condition “nervous”. Almost anything will make me nervous as though my life were on the line. I think this is in the category of delusional, right?
A lot of other people are more nervous than you’d think they were. I’ve found out that many people who appear calm and serene really have brains that are doing cart wheels inside their heads.
Mental suffering is what it is. I guess the “This, too, shall pass.” is a good quote.
