Anxiety-it's a real thing. As much as I am usually an easy-going and go-with-the-flow type, most people don’t know that I struggle hard with anxiety with anything relating to the medical world. It can be triggered by talking about body parts to sitting in a clinic, and, one of the worst for me…needles. In response to these, my body freaks out, panics and lose control of myself.
Just writing this is currently giving me anxiety cause I’m thinking about it LOL. This week, I had to go to the doctor a few times and just by sitting in the room waiting for my name to be called, I was a nervous wreck. There really isn’t a specific reason I’m scared however, I have found that in adverse situations, I find comfort in being with those I love.
My friend Hannah came with me today to sit with me through my entire appointment, and I seriously would not have went today if it wasn’t for her. My anxiety was taking over before she got there and I was ready to walk out in panic. But her help and her empathy with anxiety gave me enough strength to get through it. Anxiety is the weirdest thing ever I’m still trying to understand it. Anyone else struggle with anxiety?
