1. Yes! Absolutely! I too have anxiety. During my time on the road and shortly thereafter, it got worse and worse. After my ex and I broke up, I realized and admitted that it was at the worst it had ever been in my life and I knew I needed to do something more than just run when it kicked in. I went and saw a therapist and after a few months she suggested medications. While I know it’s so beneficial for some people, it wasn’t something I was willing to do and I started trying to figure out how else to take my anxiety into my own hands and I swear to you, the BIGGEST thing for me was meditation and learning to control and manage those feelings and catch them before they go from 0 to 100. But I totally agree, it is NOT talked about enough and people don’t realize that it’s not just “everyday” anxiety; it’s deeper rooted than that.

  2. I agree completely with this – I have depression and anxiety and have for over a year. I wrote about it here (https://lifeisbutadream13.wordpress.com/2016/06/29/mental-illness/) when I first got diagnosed, because I agree it’s SO important to talk about it and make people realise they aren’t alone! I also felt like a failure once I had to get professional help, but as you said it’s so important to remember that asking for help is nothing to be ashamed of.

    You’re doing amazing, and remember you’re never alone!
