Psychotherapy... On Myself

I have done some research, and realized I am suffering from Separation Anxiety Disorder tonight. I took my beautiful Yamaha CPX15 North (pictured here) guitar to my usual guitar doctor (Larry, or as he calls it "gEEtar" - he's from East Texas, I think). She needed some fretwork and a setup before I can do some recording this weekend with her. But I now realize that I am suffering without her tonight (I hope I'm not creeping anyone out - You "geetar" people completely understand, right?). So anyways, I did some research (on google) and found out I am suffering from Separation Anxiety Disorder. Here's what the webpage said:

Developmentally inappropriate and excessive anxiety concerning separation from home or from those to whom the individual is attached, as evidenced by three (or more) of the following:

1. recurrent excessive distress when separation from major attachment figures (MY GEETAR) occurs or is anticipated

2. persistent and excessive worry about losing, or about possible harm befalling, major attachment figures (MY GEETAR)

3. persistent and excessive worry that an untoward event will lead to separation from a major attachment figure (e.g., getting lost or being kidnapped) - (ONCE AGAIN, MY GEETAR)

4. persistent reluctance or refusal to go to school (YES!!!) or elsewhere because of fear of separation

5. persistently and excessively fearful or reluctant to be alone or without major attachment figures (YEP! HERE TOO) at home or in other settings

6. repeated nightmares involving the theme of separation (I'M SURE THEY WILL START TONIGHT!)

7. repeated complaints of physical symptoms (such as headaches, stomachaches, nausea, or vomiting) when separation from major attachment figures occurs or is anticipated

Uh,oh!! I think I qualify!! Now I trust Larry, my gEEtar doctor, completely... but I'm still a bit nervous. Anyone know of any cures? I'd hate to have to call Dr. Phil.

I would say that you could work on your papers that are due instead of blogging. That might save time and effort. :)
