That’s about as far as I remember, but I do remember the gist; your fear isn’t you. Your fear is only a transient emotion that will pass. You are not your fear, when your fear passes you will be left and what once stressed you so will be gone.
I’m autistic, a high functioning autistic by still autistic. Things can get to be too much for my and I will have—as we call them—melt downs. Being terrified for no reason you can see is frightening, I wouldn’t recommend it.
Take a deep breath, let it out slowly, and let yourself relax. Find yourself a quiet place and just chill. And should some belligerent soul approach you just say, “May I help you?”. And always remember the words of the old rabbi who once said, “Be kind to those who persecute you, it’ll piss them off.”
And dangit, I could use the money.
