I am doing this at the risk of people who may criticize or question me, because at least some part of me knows: If I don’t, something worse will happen to me, and soon.
We experience anxiety very differently, but we can help each other in a way I have never experienced before.
Can’t calm down, won’t calm down.
Can you trust what you see in the mirror?
From someone who lives with it.
We may not be able to tell you what we need. But we don’t want you to leave.
Should we be forced to sacrifice our mental health for physical?
Don’t worry, there’s plenty of other words you can use.
Here’s the thing: I can’t do anything about my anxiety any more than I can make my hair naturally smooth or my boobs bigger – it’s part of who I am.
It was easily the most bizarre thing I’ve ever done in the name of natural mental health remedies. But I’d do it all over again.
Forget pedicures and bubble baths.
