Most people are chasing things outside of themselves without ever really stopping to smell the roses... let alone stopping to ask themselves what they're actually chasing? 🤔
I learned to swim when I was about nine years old. Nobody taught me. In fact, I don't even remember how I learned. I just remember, one day, my mom had taken my siblings and me to the local public pool, where I had been swimming freestyle from one wall to another. When my mom noticed, she called out to me and said, "I didn't know you knew how to swim!"
Yesterday was hard for me. I was dealing with anxiety and the onset of what could have easily become a manic episode. I was repressing a panic attack from the moment I woke up until about mid-afternoon. And I fought myself every second throughout that day to keep from physically running away from work, and hiding somewhere to let the episode take me over. But I didn't because we were short-staffed, and that would have been devastating to my store.
Anxiety is the most common mental illness in the United States. It affects 40 million adults every year, and can have a variety of symptoms, as the facts below will indicate.
I was nineteen going on twenty when I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. Deep down, my whole life, I had a feeling I had anxiety but no one likes a self diagnoser. I finally took a step out of my comfort zone and asked my mother if she truly trusted her doctor. I asked her if he was good. I told her how I really felt around people, I knew or didn't know, places that were new to me, doing things on my own without someone else's assistance. I despised talking on the phone with anyone, even now. I would get nervous and mess up my words when I spoke. Leaving voicemails was a struggle because my mind would go blank and I wouldn't be able to remember what I was supposed to say. I get nervous when being questions at the doctor because I can never remember my family's medical history. I get anxiety when I get voicemails from people or when I get mail. I fear that it would be something bad.
THINGS WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME
If you’re like me, you have an anxiety disorder. That may not cover everyone reading, but it still casts a wide net. The wild thing about anxiety is that normal things can be one million times more difficult. This is why riding the subway or the bus during rush hour, something that’s stressful to people without anxiety, can feel like a tailor-made hell for you to suffer. The subway has everything: people crammed in like a tin of sardines, overwhelming heat, angry people, your own sleepiness as you trudge to work. I seriously think I would Uber most days if that were an affordable option.
