What’s Giving Me Anxiety

I’ve written before about my struggles with anxiety. I didn’t used to be this anxious as a child but a bad relationship and an extremely stressful job with an out of control boss (not currently but previously) have left my nerves dangling by a thread.

On Loneliness, Friendships & Anxiety

The below is a bit of a brain dump but has been sitting around in my thoughts for awhile and I wanted to share. I always want to be honest about my anxiety and especially with coming back to blogging I made a promise to write for me, and this is what I needed to write. Thanks for reading.
