I don't really have a method for addressing this except to quit the booze and take as much quiet alone time as I need. It's good to remember that most people don't want to hurt you. Kinda hard when people you care about do so.

I struggle with this.

Weed helps in some ways, makes it worse in others.

Calm music is good. Anything that reminds me how pleasant the world can be, given the chance.

Playing an instrument helps as well.

Stability and routine are paramount, and weeding out the people who aren't good for you in that way.
The world is a car and you're the crash test dummy.

This guy's innocence and love for humanity and stuff is a balm to my bruised, battered soul.
If someone does the Fine, youre right, Im clearly a terrible person, Im Satan, Im the worst person alive, I should just die thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

If you have access to a doggie and/or a friendly cat, make some lap-time with them. This helps me, personally, to the point that my wife is suggesting I look into registering one of our dogs as an emotional support animal. I don't know if I'll go that far, but both our dogs are dedicated lap dogs and my anxiety levels have diminished considerably since adding them to the family.

Sounds like the you have the first step down, when I'm fine, I know it's just a silly fault of the mind. When I get paranoid no one can convince me otherwise even if they point it out to me in detail.

So yeah that's not really advice as I have no idea.

Seriously.

It is really amazing how pleasant he is to listen to. His voice just sort of says "Hey, everything's going to be OK" even when he's talking about how much we've fucked ourselves.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

What helps me is engaging my mind in thinking about something difficult and interesting.

I reiterate to myself that I am good and that I do share genuine compassion with other people.

They would have you be afraid and fearful because they are afraid and fearful. There's always going to be somebody on top of them, the only person on top of you is you.

Depending on the angle, maybe I'd wait to take more, and then reprint when I'm ready.  I'd like to remind myself that my mind is not as fragile as it's pretending to be.  Then, if possible, slowly transition the pattern into understanding it as a particularly irritating koan.
