It must be a sign that this post popped up..
I've been diagnosed with (at least) depression and general anxiety, and stupidly turned down CBT in favour of pills, and didn't take them. My main concern is my health, so basically I'm a hypochondriac who doesn't trust the results. Go me. I should be starting CBT soonish, as I still don't want to take the pills. Somewhat ironically, thinking about taking them is causing some level of anxiety in me.
As for how this relates to games? It doesn't really, in that I haven't felt like playing anything for months. This might be related to the fact that my first panic attack happened during a conversation with a friend while I was playing Broken Sword 5...
Everyone: Thank you for sharing and posting that video from Danny, your experiences and insights have helped me realise that I'm definitely not alone.
