Thing is, you know you have a bunch of symptoms. What causes those? And what are the causes of the things that cause those?
Let's say the symptom is you have to change shirts after meetings as they are so sweaty. OK, that's a symptom. What's the cause of that? Excess sweating in meetings. Cause of that? Panicly feelings in meetings. What's the cause of that? You're scared of face to face meetings now. What's the cause of that? You're anxious these days. What's the casue of that? Multiple: You had panic attacks and are scared of having more & your system is wired panicky these days. What's the cause of that? Well your adrenals are messed. What's the cause of that? Severe body&mental stress for a time - You had mono & a sibling died last year.
OK, maybe that last one is the true root. Or at least close enough that its worth a lot of time, while you figure out something even "rootier".
You can deal with symptoms by changing the shirt, but it's better to go higher in the tree and deal with symptoms from say adrenals and do time in therapy about your loss. Meanwhile rest and eat well to rebuild your body.
Thing is there are lots more symptoms that chain out from the top level ones, so it can be hard to work your way back.
Each of us is different. As Sherpa said his network is just wired anxious. That's the root cause he identified.
I personally had gluten-intolerance issues that caused severe mental health crap. That's the root cause I identified.
Sherpa & I have done a lot of work. And we're right, but over time I bet we both still have even more learnings to get to the rootiest of the root causes. (yeah, not the best English but it makes the point).
And there are always other factors like I had work stress and so did he. So these are not unimportant, but other people do and survive it. So finding out what makes us different and more susceptible to this.
Does that make more sense?
