Thank you for sharing and welcome to the site, Spring.  I joined here about a year ago and it has been a great place for support and encouragement or just to know that others understand what I am feeling.


I am realizing that I will always be an anxious person but that I have the ability to control my thoughts and feelings.  The list you shared is great and many, if not all, of these skills can be used when in crisis mode in order to calm down but are also good tools for preventing the anxiety from getting too far out of control to begin with.  That is the part I am working on these days :-)
