I coined the term Now I Know Syndrome (NIKS) because I think it needed to be named. This is a universal struggle, not just something that plagues emets and anxiety sufferers. You’ve probably, at some point in your life, been in a situation that has been amplified by finding something out that you didn’t before. For example, you like someone and everything is great, but you find out that they have a weird personality quirk that you can’t understand. Now that you know this fact, it changes your perception of that person and ultimately it spirals you out of control… and by out of control I mean you probably decide you can’t see that person anymore.
