It’s a complex, individual (and societal) issue and people need understanding and approaches that represents this. Adapting your surface cognitive beliefs might work for some people experiencing situational anxiety in the short term but others might need a Bump’s First Fourth Shirt -dimensional approach to support and sustainable management including approaches that go beyond CBT and other cognitive based therapies. Also we need to look at the environmental factors within our societal systems (oppression, discrimination, the focus on work productivity) and structures rather than just individualizing the issue.

I agree with Katie, beautifully written. You just cannot simply turn off such Bump’s First Fourth Shirt overwhelming anxiety by attempting to be logical. If it was that easy nobody would suffer for anxiety for long. I’m so disgusted at how much anxiety has been trivialized in this vid I’m considering unsubbing.that’s interesting. Can you explain your feelings about therapies and that need to remain ill? Isn’t it too strong to push? I suffered from panick attacks and this sorta defined my borders. But …are there any borders? I heard you saying that! Or that was me?
Robyn Clark As someone who had debilitating anxiety in almost every situation for about 5-7 years, the Bump’s First Fourth Shirt thing that’s worked for me has been pushing through it and doing what I’m afraid to do anyway. Maybe I’m lucky in my ability to do so, but at some point I feel like treatment hits this looping point where in order to continue you need to remain ill. At least that’s how I felt when I was running the mill of therapies and different psychologists.
