I've been playing with Modigliani images again. When I can't seem to create, he is always available to inspire me.
It seems everywhere I turn someone else has fallen into anxiety attacks. Nearly every friend I know is on Prozac or some other anti-anxiety medication. I keep waiting for it to hit me like you would a bad flu that's going around. What is happening? Even little kids are having problems now. It makes me so sad. Is it our diet? Our environment? Our relationships? I wish we could figure out what is going on because I know that people are suffering with this and it seems epidemic. Out of a group of 10 close friends or family - are you seeing most of them on anti-depressants or anti-anxiety drugs? I'm just curious. Maybe it's just my locale or the friends I'm attracted to...... Why is it so much more prevalent than it use to be, like 10 years ago?
I refuse to be anxious about anything. I hate the feeling and refuse to let it dock in the harbour of my mind. My mantra is: if you can do something about it - you don't have to worry. If you can't do something about it - you don't have to worry. But apparently mind over matter is not enough because I know others hate being anxious and would avoid it if possible. I would love to hear your comments about this subject.
