I Have Anxiety, but I Am Not...
Sometimes I let my ego get the best of me. Sometimes I wonder why my stress is stressing me. Sometimes I lay awake and I cant go to sleep. Sometimes I need someone to take control of me. Sometimes I let my demons get ahold of me. Sometimes I think that sh*t aint what it used to be. This is my introduction to anxiety. -Hoodie Allen, Intro to Anxiety
- •Openly falling apartI have high-functioning anxiety, so you wouldn't even know unless I told you. Which makes it unfortunately difficult for people to understand at times.
- •Going to tell you everything that's going onIve learned the art of introversion and internal processing. And that usually means I don't share a lot. Sorry.
- •GrumpyI'm sorry. I get stressed out easily and mundane situations make me panic. And after dealing with that all day, I tend to get snippy with people. If I ever do this to you, I sincerely apologize.
- •Being dramaticSince it's generally hard for me to share, you can be sure that when I am open, I'm not exaggerating. In fact, I'm probably undercutting it a little.
- •Unable to functionEveryone has their challenges. I and all others with anxiety are learning how to cope and live a full life. But it is hard sometimes.
- •AntisocialIt's all a brain game. And the introversion combined with anxiety is a lot of times too much for my brain. As the great Hoodie Allen wrote "Usually I see a party, overthink and keep on walking. Cause what if the friends I came with leave me with a bunch of strangers? Standing all alone, I won't have no one to play drinking games with."
- •Lacking in ambitionThere's still a part of me that thinks I'm going to be famous one day. Basically the female version of Twenty One Pilots.
- •Most importantly, I -have- anxiety, but I -am- not my anxiety.It's a challenge. But there are people with anxiety overcoming it every day.
