Did first counselling session today. Apprently the state of the world has been in a very minor but ongoing flight or flight reaction all the time... and this is pretty normal for everyone right now?
Have me a conversational tool and some advice on how to avoid arguments, wants me to focus on my journaling more, do graded exposure to going back outside (go outside, take transit short distances, meet up with the people in my bubble more),
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)
