Have you been overly critical of yourself lately? How and why have you done this? Yes i've been hard on myself plenty. I view myself in a negative way a lot and that isn't fair to me and it isn't fair to my well being. I just think a lot about my symptoms and i think sometimes that i deserve the pain. I get a lot of anxiety and panic attacks and that isn't fair to myself either. I was thinking lately that i don't like being so hard on myself and maybe it's time to let up!.
