Anybody else instantly feel worse when someone says, “You look stressed!”? 😅

I baked you a cake to remind you that you’re not a burden and also to announce that I’ve changed my username back to @nakedwithanxiety
On January 1st, 2015, I was 100% frantic. My New Year’s resolution was to start this account, but there was a major problem — I didn’t have a name for it. I asked my brother for help and, after just a few minutes, he said, “How about ‘Naked With Anxiety’?” And just like that, everything felt right and we were on our way.
About a year into it, was acquired by a third party who wanted thousands of dollars for it. I refused to pay money for something I (err, my brother) created, so I kept an eye on it and when the domain became available for just $12 last week, I POUNCED!
Inspired by this, I’ve chosen to change the name of my account back to @nakedwithanxiety. It feels ‘right’ to make the switch today because September 17th (aka today) is actually my brother’s birthday! It feels like such a nice way to honor him for coming up with the name, and — damn — it just feels good to be back 🙌🏼✨


✨WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY✨ ••• 9 years ago, I sat down with my mom and brother and told them the most terrifying thing I’ve ever had to tell another person: “I’m afraid I’m going to kill myself.” •••
I’d been fighting so hard, for so long, but no matter what I tried, I rarely got a break from panic attacks. I’d catch my breath and almost immediately my head felt like it was being held under water again. I was exhausted from fighting something that truly felt inevitable.
I’d read about someone who’d lost their battle and break down crying, while the voice inside my head told me it was only a matter of time before it was me. A life that ended another way was unimaginable. Yet, somehow, through all of it, there was always another voice saying, “You need to figure this out so you can help others.” And so I held on. And, much to my own surprise, I created a path forward.
I wanted to serve and lead people fighting the same battle out, to be a guide out of the darkness and into the light. I’m alive today because I had all of you in my heart long before we ever connected here. And today I just want to say thank you. Thank you for being my purpose, for allowing me into your feeds & your inboxes, for trusting me & supporting my work, for telling me you feel like I’m your best friend, for believing me when I tell you there is hope for you. Thank you for being my friends — I love you all so much 💖

WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?! I’ve been slllllowly chipping away at my to-do list today (which you already know, if you’ve watched my story) and HOLY CRAP it’s been exhausting! I love making lists, but have such a hard time finishing them. I don’t think I’ve ever finished one to-do list in my life 😭 So now I’m looking at this list ^ and I’m thinking I’d be happy with any of these vacations EXCEPT the cleaning and cooking ones. Like, I *get* it, but a better option would be having someone come clean up after me or cook for me for a week. Who’s with me? 👌🏼

OKAY, TRUE. Buuuuuut it’s also so important that we practice forms of self-care that help us grow in ways that enable us to cope with the fact that basically no one really has their life “in order.”
Life’s a wild ride and focusing on being able to roll with the waves 🌊 has helped me shift my own mindset from feeling trapped to “yep, life is beyond my control, but every day is a new chance to try my best.” And that feeling is ✨✨✨
