” I have, since the age of about 2, been a twitchy bundle of phobias, fears, and neuroses. And I have, since the age of 10, when I was first taken to a mental hospital for evaluation and then referred to a psychiatrist for treatment, tried in various ways to overcome my anxiety. “


” To grapple with and understand anxiety is, in some sense, to grapple with and understand the human condition. “


” Many nights, I would begin the evening fueled by caffeine and nicotine, which I needed to propel me out of torpor and hopelessness – only to overshoot into quaking, quivering anxiety. “
