Well I’m an anxiety fighter which to a lot of you probably means nothing because I often hear “everyone has anxiety though” well although yes everyone does experience moments of anxiety not every person has an anxiety disorder. My anxiety doesn’t let my go to class or leave my house with out my parents and even with my parents it can still be too hard, now before someone say well maybe you shouldn’t let it control you; I don’t. Me getting up everyday is me trying and me facing the fear of the front door is me trying so yes I’m struggling but no I do not let it control me. I have been in therapy for 4 years and honestly it is shit although some strategies have worked, I have been on 200mg sertraline for over a year and since they believed that wasn’t working just a couple of weeks ago changed me to fluoxetine so I’m crossing my fingers it’ll work but so far i have had 4 panic attacks, I know it’ll take 4-7 weeks to start working so I’m going to continue to believe it’ll work. Anyway that’s the basics of my mental illness although there is so much more in-depth I’ll do some separate posts later on. If you’re thinking I’m way to ‘precious’ and need to suck it up, please go join the long line of people who obviously don’t understand.
