He introduced a totally new idea to me.....only worry about thoses things that will kill you or stop basic needs being met (housing, food, water, heat) the rest can be delt with. I test reality every time to worries start to see if ZI am going to die, and if not I take a load off my mind. I'm no saying that "poof" the worry goes away, but now I can put it into perspective.

Although I have an active and vivid imagination, I tend to have a hard time with visualization. Forcing myself to visualize tends to create unpleasant images. Force is the issue, I think. I try too hard and that creates stress. I'm not sure. Visualization just never seems to bring about harmonious results for me. Affirmations or mantras are a little more effective, and I think that putting things into a life/death and/or basic needs perspective is a good way of judging what is or isn't important to worry about. Thank-you so much for all your reassurance and advice. In the meantime, I've discovered that the irs issue is apparently nothing serious. Best wishes.
