Excited to check out the works named in the "favorite examples in Pop Culture" section. Only one I'm familiar with currently is Marc Maron, whose stand-up and podcast I find to be really wonderful.

Oh you’re in for a treat. If there’s anyone whose recommendations you should follow, it’s Megan. Her essay on Picnic at Hanging Rock in the Criterion Collection Blu-ray is one that I revisit all the time. Just a brilliant writer.

That is interesting to read about the different manifestations of anxiety. For instance, I was misinformed in thinking that to have anxiety you should also have panic attacks from time to time, as that was an experience for me and other people I know. You live and you learn!

Anxiety is truly one of the most personal experiences, which is one of the reasons it seems so hard to convey and make relatable sometimes. I LOVE that this series is showing me so many different ways that people experience anxiety.
