Sometimes the curve is the other way. I probably could ride roller coasters if I didn't think about all the bad things that might happen to me when they crash.

for me, personally, i think id need to switch the axes and make it a parabola, because although my thinking sometimes relieves worry, it also has a tendency to cause worrying.

regardless, i like it very much.

Shouldn't the line be y=x, i.e., more thinking means more worrying? This graph suggests a correlation such that more thinking means less worrying, and less thinking means more worrying.

Maybe I'm missing the point on this one. I'm going to stop both thinking and worrying about it.

I still like your blog a lot, and I know I'll be back.

Completely backfires on someone with an anxiety disorder...

(I think you meant, thought about _in advance_?)

If this were my graph, the line would be at a 45 degree angle ascending from the (0,0) point. The more I think about something, the more I worry. Conversely, if I don't think of something, I won't worry about it!

Would make a great T-Shirt, by the way. Maybe many of these would. You should get those printers cranking soon!
