Ever feel light headed, sick to your stomach, chest tightened and like you might just pass out or die?
Or have irrational fears like you’re kids going to die in their sleep or you might drive off the road and crash?
I’m assuming if you are reading this then you most likely have experienced some or all of those feelings or thoughts and perhaps, you are quite close friends with anxiety. I know, I am.
I’ve struggled with anxiety for my entire life and while there can be a lot of shame or hesitation to talk about it in today’s world, I am quite comfortable being open and honest about my struggle.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned that there are so many people that actually struggle with anxiety that I would have never expected. These people often seem extremely outgoing, confident, and like they really have their shit together, but once I really get to know them I realize we are more alike than I could have ever imagined. I find that it can be so comforting to share and connect with others about our struggles so we can feel a little less alone on this journey.
