The A word.

Restless at night

Sleepless morning 

Days of suffocation 

Nights of agitation

How will I ever get out of this situation?

Peace of mind is what I long for

But how can I retrieve it, if I am afraid to see what is on the other side of the door?

Shortness of breath, random panic attacks

When in the world did I get into this mess?

I once was a free spirit soul 

                                                 until life showed me it was my turn to experience its own cruelty

And then I became cold 

                                   to then abused

                                                           to then confused

                                                              to then

worthless  

                                                                to then lost 

But despite it all,

What I keep deep inside of me is one thing….

Hope!

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorders. They affect 18% of adults in the United States in any given year, with a lifetime prevalence of 29% of all Americans. An anxiety disorder is more than just a temporary feeling. It is relatively long-lasting, can get worse over time, and significantly interferes with a person’s daily activities.
