Sacramento KXTV ABC 10 Segment on Anxiety Nation

Usually when a local or national news program does a story about anxiety it is a hit it and quit it.
Meaning that they will talk about many things for two minutes and the story is gone.

This is a little different. 

The story is six minutes long. There is an honest attempt at hearing the voices of fellow travelers on the road and medical professionals. And there is a mention that not all treatments work for everybody.

Do I wish it was longer? Yes. 

But I do understand the time and cost constraints of local television. And local television, use well and truly being of service to the community, is necessary. It is reaching people that don't use the internet.
