Take THAT Anxiety! 

My day started out with a bit of unexplained anxiety, which annoyed me greatly. As many of you know, anxiety comes around for no reasons a lot of the time, which is what makes it so frustrating! However, I didn’t let it ruin my day! I went to the gym, swam in my pool, and by the time the day was over I realized I had beaten the anxiety, and had a wonderful day! 

I praise God for helping me to get to this point because I haven’t always been able to beat anxiety in less than a day. Sometimes it took months. 

If you are in the fight with anxiety, don’t give up. You can beat it. 

My WordPress Birthday!

Today is my 1 year WordPress birthday! Thank you to everyone who has supported me this year as I have been going through the healing process with my anxiety disorder. I have come such a long way and WordPress has contributed to a huge part of my growth! 


You are not Alone

If you are someone who has a mental disorder, like myself, I am here to tell you that you are not alone. Over this past year, I have been learning that more people  have been experiencing the same thing I have than I ever imagined! It is sad to think we have all kept silent because we are afraid that we will be ridiculed. Many of us have suffered years in silence and have been too timid to tell those around us what is really going on.

You are not alone! Reach out. Tell a friend. Write a blog. Whatever medium you feel most comfortable express your feelings and struggles because people will reach out and be there for you. You do not have to struggle alone.


Cold Remedies

Well! I went so long without getting sick and yesterday it caught up with me. I haven’t had a serious cold in a long time and I have to say, I would have been fine not getting it! I slept most of the afternoon and am now sipping on green tea and honey. My dogs are very snuggly so they are making me feel a lot better!

UGH! Hope you guys are all feeling well and having a great day.



My year anniversary of beginning my anxiety healing journey is coming up, and I have been reflecting on it a lot lately. When I compare my life to a year ago, health wise, it is hardly the same. My life centered around how to get around how to get away from situations that triggered my panic attacks. It has been almost a year since I have had one, and I never thought it would be possible! I love how far I have come!

1500?! Really?!

WOW! How can I be at 1500 followers! I truly appreciate your support and kindess as I have blogged about the journey I have been traveling over the last several months. Anxiety is a difficult disorder but I have been learning that it makes me strong! Facing my battle alone would have been terrifying, but being here on WordPress has given me a voice I never thought I could have! 


Finally! No anxiety

Since I have been keeping you up on the anxiety battle this week, I have finally pushed past it! When I woke up this morning I had a crushing sense of anxiety and it incredibly frustrating. All I wanted to do was stay curled up in bed and remain there for the rest of the morning. However, I knew I needed to continue onward with my day and make sure the anxiety wouldn’t control me. I decided, with the encouragement of my husband, to work out and see if that would help take away the tightness in my chest. I worked out for a while and began to feel that anxiety lift away. I then had a hair appointment, which I love, and I was able to just have girl talk and enjoy being pampered. I am now anxiety free once again! It has been such a long week of battling this anxious feeling. I am so happy I am finally back on the other side of the hill. 🙂


Pushing onward when it is no fun

There are times when I just want to give up the fight against anxiety. It is an honest struggle and it is rough, but it is the truth. Anxiety is tiring and frustrating. Today was my anxiety was annoying and there were times when I felt that I wanted to give in and wallow in my own self pity. But what good would that do for me? What good does it do for me to stop fighting and give in? It only leads to more anxiety and wasted days filled with sorrow.

I have continued to push through with my day and not allow it to stop me. I know that it will pass and I will get back to feeling like myself again! I won’t give up the fight.
