Eliminating extraneous stress and anxiety is never easy, not least because there are always people and processes that want you to experience stress and anxiety. But, a few years since the Brain Thing That Nearly Killed Me, I’ve had to accept that I cannot think and work when I let things trigger the hypertensive stress cascade – that, in fact, a majority of the issues I had in the ten years previous to the Brain Thing were, in fact, down to it going undiagnosed and unmanaged after the first Brain Thing in my mid-thirties.
Never too late to learn new things, including new ways of working and being in the world (or away from it). Never too late to learn how to put your back to the wind and go a thousand miles an hour.
It is 1230pm, I’ve been up two and a half hours, and I just hit inbox zero. I am listening to FROZEN PASSAGES by Poemme and I have a comic to finish writing. Good morning.
