Tales from the Amygdala, or The “It Might Not Get Better” Project

Periodically on this blog we will be posting short videos from people who have experience with anxiety and have something to say about it. I call this series “Tales from the Amygdala” — the amygdalae being the almond-shaped structures that are thought to be the seat of fear in the human brain.

But another good name for the series is the It Might Not Get Better Project.

First up is a video from the wonderful comedian, writer, and human being Benari Poulten, a.k.a. G.I. Jew. Benari is an Army Reservist posted in sunny Kandahar, Afghanistan, which is where he recorded this video. The video is titled “Snakes, Death, and Pinecones.” Come home safe, Benari!
