“I’ve had anxiety since the 8th grade, so about 4 years now, and for the past 4 year I’ve let it rule over my life. Giving up friends, missing out on good times, giving up a normal high school experience at a school I worked my butt off to get accepted into only for my anxiety to tell me “nope you can’t do this, time for independent studies” 7 months into freshman year. But here I am today, about to be a senior, to tell you that I am back in control of my life, going to therapy and taking care of myself bc I’m tired of all the “I CANT’s!” I can do anything I set my mind to and that’s exactly what I plan to do for the rest of my life.” – anxiety.relief
