It's science time!

amygdala
"This is a cross-section of a brain showing the amygdala and caudate nucleus—the structures believed to be linked to negative emotions like fear and anger. The amygdala is believed to be fully developed by the time a baby is born. The prefrontal cortex (the front of the brain) where thinking and planning take place, takes longer to mature. This may explain why it takes time for children to learn how to control their fears." - Image and text from this place


...And this is Trazodone:

It puts me to sleep.

Nicely put.

I am still learning to control my fears, too; and my temper, alas.

What is one to do ?

I am glad to see you posting. And thanks for the pictorial link, Matt.

Yeah, I've got some anxiety issues... and fear issues... hell I've got so many issues I ought to start offering subscriptions!

"What is one to do?", indeed.
