When Anxiety Hurts
Sometimes my anxiety is so bad that I feel like it actually physically hurts. I don’t know how to handle it when there doesn’t seem to be anyone who truly knows how to be around me when I’m anxious. Or maybe I’m not letting them. But truth is, when I cannot handle it and it takes over my actions and thoughts, that’s when I know I’m in trouble.
I don’t know what else to do because, I admit, I don’t have all the tools to deal with it. When you know what’s causing your anxiety, it’s possible that you can address it. But what about when you can’t deal with it and you don’t know what’s causing it to act up again? Are you meant to just sit in silence, away from society, breathe and hope that it goes away? Or are you meant to go out into the world and face it head on, hoping it goes away?
I wouldn’t know anymore.
