I have anxiety.... Really I've had it for my entire life, but this year in particular it has reached a whole new level and I have experienced panic attacks for the first time in my life along with high blood pressure. It got to the point where I decided to try some medicine for it, but it wasn't for me...it actually made the symptoms worse, caused me to be depressed and just all around out of whack.
For the past month I've been doing ok...dealing with stuff and managing the anxiety on my own.
When life throws the curve balls though, it gets tough. But really, there is no option except to wallow for a short time, get up and do it!
