So you're so right Joanna, I hadn't thought of using the same techniques I read about for Dayzee on myself. hmmm, That would include being mindful of what the triggers are and not judging them, using soft. comforting voice while approaching the fearful thing, praising for success or improvement, and holding with love when the panic strikes. I think you might be on to something :)
And yes, self-confident does make it more positive :) I've been on a roll with that!
