Over the past several years, I have identified with having an anxiety disorder. So much so that it became my entire identity.

During the first few years after my diagnosis, I found myself searching up every anxiety symptom I had on the internet, thinking I was going to die. Note to self: do not self diagnose via internet! Spoiler: it always ends with cancer or a brain tumor.
It has been a long road and I still struggle some days but the good days outweigh the bad. This blog may not become well-liked or do great things for many, and that’s ok. However, if it helps at least one person feel better, feel a little less alone in the world, I will consider that a success.
