Extreme emotions have been up an down for the past few days.  I haven't tracked the time it happens, it just does.  I assume I am going through some neuro emotions.  Mostly fear and anxiety, obsessive thoughts.  On a good note, brain fog/dysfunction has been a lot less.

I've noticed the days when I have less brain fog, I have more neuro-emotions. When the brain wakes up, it tends to want something to focus on and will grasp the most scary and obsess over it. 

 

The "change the channel" method is very effective for not feeding into the fear.

 

"Change the channel" -- dealing with cognitive symptoms

 

The more you can do this during episodes of neuro-emotions, the more you can use the natural neuroplasticity of the brain and re-train it in a positive direction. 

 

Another great thread on how to not feed into the fear is:

 

Dealing With Emotional Spirals

 

Just by acknowledging that your emotions are in fact neuro-emotions, you are showing a lot of insight.  I was a slow learner and it took me quite awhile to make the connections.

Thank you for the information.   Very helpful for me and helpful  to know I'm not the  only one.   And yes, I noticed if one symptom is less another one seems stronger.

I hope these are neuro emotions.  It's very intense fear/anxiety and I feel it will never go away, but a few weeks ago it wasn't as intense so I guess it's just the up and down healing pattern.
