Lately, I find myself trying to understand my anxiety & depression better. Being diagnosed at age 6 and now being 22 you would think I would have some sort of idea, right? Wrong.
If you have anxiety and/or depression, then you know that it is several feelings at once, and then feeling nothing at all. How do you explain that to someone? It feels like you’re suffocating, but you’re breathing fine, and life around you continues as you are stuck in your thoughts, or maybe you’re stuck in an empty space..
Nothing is scarier than your own thoughts, for me anyways. I am my own worst enemy. My mom has been telling me that for as long as I can remember and I never fully understood, but there are demons hiding in my brain, and they want to hurt me, and I let them.
