Quote of the Week: All Lost in the Supermarket

People who have never had a period of living with anxiety and panic don't understand that the realness of you is an actual feeling that you can lose. People take it for granted. You don't get up in the morning and think, as you spread peanut butter on your toast, "Ah, good, my sense of self is still intact, and the world is still real, I can now get on with my day." It's just there. Until it isn't. Until you are in the cereal aisle, feeling inexplicable terror.

 - Matt Haig, Notes on a Nervous Planet, p.197
