I Use The “Worry Room” Method to Manage My Anxiety — Here’s How It Works
I knew it was time to seek help when I was spending hours online looking up every symptom in my body and every medicine I was prescribed. Bad habits — or in my case, anxiety patterns — take time to overcome. So, when my therapist recommended I try the “worry room” technique, I went to the one place I knew I could find more information: the internet. But all I found when I searched the term were references to Scrooge McDuck pacing in circles in his worry room — first believed to have appeared in the 1950’s Disney comics “The Secret of Atlantis,” written by Carl Barks.
