So, About Those Tablets

Because I’m trying to keep this blog short and sharp so that you don’t have to focus for ages when you’re tired or stressed, I wanted to return to the idea of taking prescribed medication for anxiety. Please bear in mind that I’m talking about non-medical anxiety at this point! Tablets are good Much asContinue reading “So, About Those Tablets”

Don’t Be Ashamed to Need Help

One thing that surprises me is how long people struggle before they ask for help, and some don’t. For some it’s an admission of defeat, and if you’ve felt this way remember, you’re more likely to be defeated without help than you are if you knock down every door until you find the person thatContinue reading “Don’t Be Ashamed to Need Help”

Either way, if you’re not feeling helped by people who don’t understand or can’tContinue reading “Stop Listening to Others”

This saying says it all. The lighter you feel in mind and emotion, the healthier and happier you feel, the more easily you will move forward into creating a better life on your own terms.

In truth only people who’ve had anxiety really get it, really understand the replacement of the self with someone you never wanted to be. Only we know how much it hurts,Continue reading “Hi and Why!”
