Day 13: Has your physical illness had any effect on your mental health? Explain.
I worry. However, the problem is I don't worry "enough" to be medicated. My anxiety is not crippling per say. I worry over silly things. For example - say I'm in a meeting in the school auditorium and I end up getting a seat in the middle or not an end seat. I may then worry, "Oh my gosh, what if I have to get up to use the bathroom and crawl over all of those people?" It's a silly thing to worry about. And sometimes (not all the time) I worry about what people think of me.
Or if my husband doesn't answer his phone/texts/emails - it causes me to worry.
I think a lot. However, I'm also a writer. It's what we do. Sometimes I think too much. Too deep. I'm too critical. I often joke that I have no enemies because I am my own worst enemy.
Anxiety has definitely impacted my life - but luckily I know ways to deal with it now and the people close to me know how to help me with it as well.
