Everyday anxiety attack before work 

I know I’m being stupid because it’s the same routine every morning before I have to go out, especially for work. Wake up, anxiety starts, getting ready, trying not to gag (one of my bad anxiety symptoms it’s a form of a nervous cough) eating breakfast, appetite goes (means I’ll be extra hungry later which will make my anxiety worse cause of no energy), sorting bag out, anxiety gets worse, half an hour to wait till I leave, try to distract myself which doesn’t work, leaving the house and getting in the car, breathing starts to go quick, walking into work, nervous wreck, jittery first five minutes and then I’m absolutely fine. 43 more words

Anxiety Disorder


Definition: feeling no fear. Very bold or brave.

Such an estranged word for me, yet I feel so close to it.

I live my life safe, never going beyond the shore. 174 more words
