My anxiety is shaking hands. My anxiety is imaginative. My anxiety is sleepless nights. My anxiety is never satisfied.
My anxiety sits on my shoulder.
My anxiety keeps me from making important phone calls. My anxiety forces me to want to isolate myself. My anxiety makes me cry over nothing. My anxiety makes me cry over everything. My anxiety tells me a C may as well be an F. But my anxiety forces me to avoid important tasks I have to deal with. Everything scares me.
What am I so scared of?
My anxiety wakes me up vomiting. My anxiety forces me to pull away from the people I so badly want to fall into. My anxiety keeps me from living.
My anxiety makes me at least two to twenty minutes late everywhere because I don’t believe I am ever prepared, so I have to retrace my every other step, constantly checking and re checking. Constantly doubting.
My anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through my mind. My anxiety is a menace, a monster, a fish with teeth, black yarn, lawn chairs sinking in the sand.
