Anxiety is a bummer to live with!
Growing up with anxiety has been quite the rollarcoaster let me tell you. One minute I'm happy and on clould nine then the next thing you know it I'm crying and freaking out for no apparent reason.
Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, unease typically about an event or something with an uncertian outcome. There a differnt levels of anxiey ranging from mild to cronic. I suffer from#generalanxietydisorderand sometimes if I’m not careful it can be debilitating.
I first relaized I had anxiety when I was about 16 years old. I was having an anxiety attack in class when a teacher (who also suffered from anxiety) calmed me down using the techniques she follows. In that moment everything became so clear! Anxiety? So that's what this feeling is called. Little did I know that this was something that I'd be dealing with for the rest of me life.
The older I got the worst my anxiety became and it doens't help that I'm an overthinker either. I soon came to realize that my mom, aunts, grandmother and siblings also suffered from anxitey. Now that I knew this was something hereditary and it's probably not going away I stsrted to educate myself on the topic.
I found ways to identify my trigger points that cause my anxitey attacks. I found ways to cope with my anxiety using various tecniques (prayer, mediation, deep breating, listening to calming music, yoga). And now I'm talking about it to help others.
I know my battle with anxiety isn't over yet but I'm confident that day by day I will find healthy ways to cope.
If you also cope with anxiety I'm here with you! I can relate to what you're going through and I'm here for you if you ever need to talk.
