Restless at night
Days of suffocation
Nights of agitation
How will I ever get out of this situation?

And then I became cold
to then abused
to then confused
to then lost

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.
