Unhinged Episode #039: What, Me Worry?

We start this episode with the announcement that Doug’s current remission has now surpassed his 3-month record. Not only has this remission lasted the longest so far, but it is also the highest quality remission he has had yet! Looks like the DBS is in the zone, working its magic.

It’s not all rainbows and butterflies, however, as he has to now learn how to process emotions in the context of a “normal-acting” brain, something he has very little experience doing. One thing that has stuck around is his anxiety. Besides a general anxiety that creeps in every now and then, there is the looming spectre of human interaction, which can trigger Doug’s social anxiety. We talk about how he’s handling his day-to-day anxiety, and what coping tools have helped him.

Continuing the topic of anxiety, we touch on the differences between worry and anxiety. Can worry turn into anxiety that needs treatment?

    Gentlemen, another excellent show. I really enjoy your theme music and the movie clips that you use in the introduction to each week's show. My number one tool for dealing with anxiety is the use of various types of music. Whoever first came up with the line about 'music soothing the (not-so!) savage beast' really knew what they were talking about! I'm a fairly new listener to your podcast, so I am wondering if you have done any episodes about music being an excellent tonic for what ails you? Keep up the excellent work!!!!! P.S., I loved Doug's tip for locking in on the bassline (the most underrated instrument in music!).
