A Horse Called Anxiety

I Am Stronger Than My Struggles

I made the decision to delete my last post. A combination of lack of sleep and high Anxiety did not make for enjoyable reading, and let’s face it, my posts have started to sound very similar.

Behind the Scenes

The side of Mental Illness people don’t see Anxiety is so much more than just feeling Anxious, Depression is more than just experiencing a low mood.

No One to Call

Tonight seems to be one of those nights; I struggled to fall to sleep and then I suddenly get woken up by a Panic Attack. They are becoming more and more frequent, some days I have more than one or a succession of panic attacks, I just wish I knew why. The ones I getContinue reading “No One to Call”

The More You Do It The Easier It Gets?!?!

Really cheesy title I know, but I am at a loss on what to name this Anxiety blog post. Over the years I have had the above phrase said to me over and over again, and yes in some instances and scenarios it does work, but not in all. In fact, hearing it repeated againContinue reading “The More You Do It The Easier It Gets?!?!”
