All Grown Up And Anxious

“You’d think I’d have grown out of it by now. I’m still a freakin mess most days.

It started in Freshman year. I’d get these weird feelings…tingling sensations and I get hot and light-headed. No one really knew what was wrong with me.

I got help when I was 23 and it got better. I learnt to not let situations take over my mind. The last year though has been bad again and I don’t know why.

Maybe moving states for a new job hasn’t helped, but I feel as though I should be able to sort it out. I’m anxious about writing this, but I needed somewhere to ‘dump.’”
