Agreed. Don't try this at home, kids. Get a cognitive behavioral therapist.

I have a bit of an anxiety problem, but it's not disabling, so it's not a disorder. Some anxiety is a good thing- it keeps me focused. It only becomes a problem for me when it causes insomnia. With the help of a therapist, I've learned to put boundaries between what causes anxiety and bedtime. Training in things that cause me anxiety definitely helps.
