Anxiety

As many of you have, I’ve dealt with anxiety for a long time. When I was in high school, it was at its highest point. My anxiety got so bad my senior year, that I missed 86 days of school. I couldn’t be around people. I dumped my friends and became a stranger inside my own mind.

The constant playing of what I’ve said over and over again in my head until I’m physically sick was just unbearable. I just couldn’t focus. I was too preoccupied worrying about what others thought of me.

To this day, I struggle with anxiety. It gets the best of me and most days I let it. It’s too hard to fight it sometimes. I know that if I want my anxiety to subside, I have to fight it and learn to control my demons.

Recently, I’ve started writing; mainly about my daily struggles. And it means the most to me and calms my chaotic mind that people are actually reading a responding to my work.

I’m forever grateful.

Xoxo, Jessica
