How I cured my ‘stress disorder’ I was suffering from ‘social anxiety disorder’. This is an extreme and irrational form of stress. My life was a living hell and I couldn’t explain it. But I’m not the kind of guy who gives up. So I set about understanding and finding a way to cure my disorder. I researched every facet of anxiety/stress to try to figure it out. I came to realize that it’s all about your inner voice. We all have inner voices, although some of ours may be clearer than others. Mine is very clear. I have a lot of thoughts going on in my head all at once. I’m thinking about a multitude of possible scenarios at any one moment in time. Unfortunately, if you combine this high level of thinking with negativity, what you get is anxiety. For a while I would have considered trading my intellect for peace in my mind. Because that would work. But I would never do that. Instead I found a way to literally re-train my mind, without sacrificing anything. I developed a system that changed me from a wreck of a man into a calm, relaxed guy, without losing my clear focussed way of thinking. If anything I’ve become more focussed.
