I am currently in therapy and we started to explore it. My anxiety changes shape like an amoeba, so I think he expected it to become health related at some point. Weve started working on it so hopefully ill calm down soon.

You are a's perceived in your head that there is something seriously wrong with you when in fact, you did exercise and your body is naturally are wasting money and benefits by seeing the doctor.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

I played racquetball with my right arm....last time I played was in the early 1990's. To this day my right arm muscle is larger than my left. I played every day & in competitions with high level players not just once in awhile.

Sometimes some things we do create that.

On another extreme, I blew our my ACL playing racquetball & needed knee reconstruction before it was done arthroscopically. My leg was in a cast for a month after the surgery. When the cast came off my leg had atrophied to skin & bone. Lots of PT for 6 months & I was downhill skiing with a brace but it took years of focused work for that leg to regain the muscle mass it lost. Can't tell the difference now (except for the huge scar).

Dedicated focus on the smaller muscle to develop it is the only way to counter that

Leo's favorite place was riding shot gun in the passenger seat of my truck. We went everywhere together like this.
