people with anxiety disorders are so brave like we feel unbearable amounts of anxiety over doing things like going to the doctor or getting on a plane or talking on the phone or taking a test but sometimes we find the strength to do those things anyway even though we’re terrified out of our minds and that’s really amazing. people with anxiety are brave as hell
- upset stomach and vomiting
- muscle aches
- chronic fatigue
- hormonal problems
- irregular menstrual cycles
- lowered immune system
- shortness of breath
- heart palpitations
it is a lot more than just “feeling anxious “
for the first time, I am not stressed about my student loan/medical bill debt. This feels incredible. My housemate was talking about it and something just clicked. I can’t afford to stress over this and damage my health. Life is short and beautiful and a lot of fucking people are in debt. And a lot of fucking people don’t get the opportunity to go to school. And I am grateful for my tuition being paid by a scholarship-like holy shit thank you Universe. It’s going to be alright and I am tired of constantly finding something to stress about. And now I have butterflies in my stomach, fingers and neck but they are..hopeful. It’s exciting.
Oh, and here’s a random selfie from just now.
