Today is an anxiety day it seems. With a depression day, it means you don’t do anything much but that’s okay because you don’t feel the need to! But with anxiety, you try to do something and really want to, but the anxiety tries to stop you.
Classic line for those that have never experienced it is “it’s not real, just remember and tell yourself that” but actually it is real – okay so I understand that just standing in the kitchen trying to make some breakfast is not something that is most likely dangerous, but that’s not the ‘real’ bit. The ‘real’ bit is standing in the kitchen trying to make some breakfast whilst your entire body goes into danger mode. Alas the brain is not very good at telling the difference between ‘real’ and ‘not real’ fear.
Did manage to walk the couple of minutes to the local post box and back though.
