Anxious.

Last night I'm pretty sure I had a minor anxiety attack. 

I woke up really hot, my heart was beating fast and my chest hurt. 

It was not fun. 

Especially since it kinda lasted from 2 am to 6 am. 

No sleep = unhappy Marie. 

I prayed for the morning. I prayed for reprieve. I prayed for rest. 

I swear everyday I learn something new or remember something about myself. I remember kind of feeling like this a few times this summer and then it dawned on me why. 

I don't do well idle. 

I need to be moving, creating, doing something!

Even in my car I don't like to just sit, I like to drive. 

In my classroom, I like to dance. 

In my life, I WANT TO MOVE! (;))

But...I digress...going back to the original topic. 

Anxiety. 

As a wise woman once told me "anxiety is so sneaky and convincing". 

It makes you think things you don't want to think and feel things you don't want to feel. 

But you know what I don't want you to feel?

Alone. 

Because you're not.

If you have anxiety believe me you are not alone.

You are not the only crazy one out there overthinking life or situations. 

You are not the only one that can't sleep or can't be awake because it's too much. 

You are not the only one who lays in her childhood bed and cries while the rest of her family laughs in the other room. 

You are not alone. 

And neither am I. 

We can do this together. 

We can voice these anxieties and face them head on. 

We can say our truth and not be scared of it. 

We can take back our lives and our mental health. 

Just remember: you are not alone.

-M.
