Anxiety During the Holidays

Today was just one of those days that I tried really hard. Lifted. Went on a walk because it was gorgeous out. And my anxiety was still very, very bad most of the day. I made it through seeing my two clients but overall my anxiety just ended up being unbearable. I'm tired of my [...]

Wellness Wednesday: Pulling Yourself Out of Anxiety and Depression

Sometimes doing exactly what you don't want to do is precisely what will save you. I recently joined a local Y and have been going to yoga classes and swimming laps. I notice on the days that I do either of those things I feel better equipped to handle my to-do list those days. It's [...]

Wellness … Thursday?

I can't believe it's already December. This year flew by, and for the most part I have been pretty consistent about posting every Wednesday/at least once a week.

High Functioning Anxiety 6

Normally I don't post so late, but alas, school has been occupying most of my thoughts. This week didn't start out very well... I taught my first lesson as a TA in a master's level addictions course. I felt the all too familiar all-consuming dread, heart pounding, feeling flushed, mouth dry, head ache, etc before [...]

High Functioning Anxiety 4

Wednesday again? It scares me how fast time goes. My 29th birthday is tomorrow... I actually remember a dark point in my life where I decided for myself that if I wasn't happy by the time I was 30, I would end my life. I think I defined happy more so in terms of having [...]
