She also encourage me so share this with the people around me, and I got the feel (though she didn't say this) that she thinks a whole lot of us are going to need therapy when this is over, and since most people can't get it or won't ask, passing along information isn't a bad thing
When I've been to therapy before methods of dealing with anxiety as a physical response have been emphasized:
Running or similar to use up the extra oxygen in your blood
Focusing on something to break the chain of scary thoughts reenforcing themselves (spelling words backwards is fast, but I also did playing a complicated video game while also trying to follow a podcast about time travel and that worked really well)
@Canageek while I don't know what is happening across the country, there has been a marked increase in MH supports especially in healthcare. There are several business I have heard that are providing MH coverage when it previously was not. I have heard an estimate of a 300% increase in people seeking treatment specifically regarding PTSD and healthcare workers.
@Canageek I forget how long we've known each other now, but I've never found you to be argumentative? Weird.
@gemlog Oh, I am, I just try and behave on Mastodon. I've been called out for it a few times here though.
I'm getting less control of it as of late
