My anxiety prison: life sentence in solitary confinement

I’ve only ever reblogged two other posts in all the time that I’ve been at WordPress, but I feel utterly compelled to as this is beautifully written and describes what so many of us struggle/have struggled with. Bravo.

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.  –Terry Pratchett

Looking back, I suspect I’ve had anxiety most of my life. But it’s funny how these things work. You don’t realize what you’re going through when it’s the status quo, when it’s constant. You realize what you’ve been through after you come out of it. In retrospect, I know I coped as best I could. And the rest of the time, I just worried — and suffered — in silence.

Anxiety is the kind of problem that grows and escalates. It compounds itself and multiplies. Eventually, it will envelope and consume your life, and then – regardless of whether it’s all you’ve known – you have to deal with it. Because you can’t do anything else.
