Anxiety; a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
Some people are more scared to talk about mental illnesses and suicide, than about losing a life. I never want to be that person, so I always like opening up and telling my story to you guys. I don’t ever want a cover over me, that looks as if my life is rainbows and butterflies, because it isn’t. Here’s an opening to a MI I suffer with.
Anxiety is a crazy thing, you know. One week I’m flying to Nashville by myself, to the next week, having an anxiety attack. Anxiety isn’t pretty. Anxiety attacks are being in a room with people you love, but you’re suddenly feeling anxious and nervous and you have to leave the room. Anxiety attacks happen anywhere. Anxiety attacks are being at your church with people you’re comfortable around, to having to run to the bathroom to get away from everyone, and calling your mom to come to you, so you can cry while being cradled in her arms. Anxiety attacks can happen while you’re in your room by yourself, because you’re thinking back on the past and remembered something someone said and all of a sudden you’re feeling nauseous and anxious. What’s worse than Anxiety, is having anxiety and depression, but life goes on and you have to keep going. I’m thankful for the ones God has put in my life. He’s amazing! Sometimes people think “Why would God let someone have mental illnesses”, and I think sometimes God gives/puts us in certain positions to draw us closer to him, and to help others out. God may let you bend, but he’ll never let you break. For everyone suffering from a mental illness, or even a physical illness, you WILL get through this. Some of us will have a mental illness for the rest of our lives, and we’ll be on medication, but it’s ok. We’re still human like the ones that don’t suffer with an illness. We’ve got this guys. Do NOT let the illness win. 💜 #mentalhealthawareness
