During one of my lunchtime parking lot sessions when I sat in my car and called the attorney, he answered one of my many questions. I said, "Oh, that makes me feel better." He said, "I'm glad you feel better--but nothing has changed to make you feel better." After he heard my small, dejected "Oh," he added, "...and at two in the morning when you can't sleep, nothing will have changed to make you feel worse."

Common sense is hard to remember when I am in the middle of a full-out panic--but remembering those words has saved me from at least a few sleepless nights.
