fun fact: you don’t cure depression by telling me i have nothing to be sad about
another fun fact: you dont cure anxiety by just getting up and doing whatever it is that makes you anxious
yeah. exposure therapy works to a degree sometimes, but 1) the person has to be willing and able and 2) either putting THEMSELVES through it or using the help of a trained professional.
despite my intense phone anxiety, i had a job where i had to do phone tech support almost daily (with me often initiating calls) for almost two years. in my next job i had to often attend and sometimes even organize intra-department / international conference calls. after all that i STILL have huge hangups about calling or answering the phone. it helped *somewhat*, but i’m not at all cured.
Seriously considering ordering chirps now. I didn’t think about them much when I saw them the first time… And thanks for the commentary on food bugs!
no problem! yeah, no idea how chirps will actually TASTE, i just kinda wanna support them on principle.
Since you're following my blog, does that technically make it a food porn blog?
i actually DID eat a bunch of bugs at bugfest on saturday! it was nice to be able to practice what i preach, lol. some of the food was gross, but not because of the bugs
the first thing was mealworms in grits… i’m fine with the mealworms, but just the sight/smell of grits makes me queasy
there was a pecan brittle thing with.. i think either cricket or mealworm flour + mealworms chopped up into it. that was okay, but it was WAY too sweet
there was some stir fry with crickets in it, which was probably the best thing. little salty and dry though
and the last thing was chocolate-dipped crickets in.. sweet potato ice cream. again, i couldn’t even taste the bugs, but the sweet potato ice cream was a little weird.
the worst part about eating (whole) bugs is that they have sharp crunchy bits, so it’s kind of the same effect as eating popcorn sometimes (but popcorn leaves a lot more crap/irritates my teeth way more in experience)
as long as i’m on the subject, i might as well mention chirps, which i’ll review when i get my kickstarter order from them (that campaign is over, but i think you can still preorder through their site). it’s an all-woman run company too :O
zodiac horoscopes!!! :^)
