‘What is wrong with you?’
‘Stop feeling that way’
‘Why are you being like this’
Anxiety, a mental health illness that makes you say what if? That encourages that voice in your head that makes you doubt everyone.
It makes you wish the ground would swallow you up because your stomach is lurching, you palms are sweating and you feel like you are underwater. For totally irrational reasons too, which you know but still feel that way and that’s the most frustrating thing.
Some people will get it. Some people will not. Some will support you and make sure you are calm before moving on. Some will question you and make you feel isolated.
That’s the way I felt today.
Guys, anxiety to me is a horrible thing that makes you super sensitive and aware of everything. Today I was stressing about where to eat. Some people say that’s crazy and others don’t need to say anything they just are there.
I’m better since last year but I have moments like now so I’m blogging to get it out. I may have taken some meds to calm me but my main focus is this. I want you all to know that I’m with you whether it be anxiety, depression, any mental illness you are dealing with. You are with me and I’m also dealing with it. I may be ahead in my recovery or behind but we should all support one another if you get it because there are plenty of people who don’t.
