A-Z Challenge, A is for Anxiety


I decided to t=do an A to Z challenge again since it’s been a while so. I may not do it every day since my brain is rather frazzled but I thought I’d start with A (a good place to start).

A is for anxiety, which I suffer from. If you don’t suffer from anxiety, good for you. If you do, I am so sorry. I know what it’s like. There are days when you can’t sit still and can’t concentrate on anything. You don’t even know what you’re anxious about. My shrink tells me to keep busy and not try to figure out what I’m anxious about which I think is good advice because anxiety is completely irrational. But it eats away at you until you are a squirming mess and of absolutely no use to yourself or anyone else. I take my mes and they help but they make me sleepy and I hate being sleepy during the day. I used to nap during the day to escape the anxiety but I gave that up and decided to face the demons. So I do. I keep busy and take my meds if I need to and am sleepy if that happens but I will not escape into dreamland. I will face the anxieties and win.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
