I read a book called The Craving Brain which talked in terms of "resetting" the brain from an emergency state. It's conclusions led me to a book called The High Performance Mind by Anna Wise, a neurofeedback practitioner who uses meditation techniques to induce deeper states defined by brainwave activity, which has been one of the most helpful books I've read.

Chalk it up to symptoms comparable to PTSD in my opinion:  these areas of the brain are 'overworked' and end up organically atrophied (Amygdala, Hippocampus, etc.).  Eventually in frontal/prefrontal, cortical parts and meso-limbically, things can be influenced.  

I think at some point there is possible actual cell-death and ventricles in the brain begin to appear bigger and can negatively influence you in a psychiatric, emotional, and cognitive way (..and in worse case scenarios: shows itself as a seizure disorder, Parkinson's, schizophrenia/bipolar, and maybe perhaps dementia).

Facing your fears. There. Is. No. Way. Around. Pain.

 

It's not about going around pain, Fearless. The exhaustion many people suffer from their symptoms severely hampers any processing they might attempt. Accessing deeper states -or "resetting" the emergency state, even if only briefly- counters mental fatigue, accelerates emotional processing and ultimately leads to faster resolution. If you always push you can burn yourself out, and keep yourself that way. You also have to know when to let go. Often that's when we make the most progress.
