People don’t make ad campaigns for us. Our anxiety is not so easily classified. Our symptoms aren’t always identifiable. How do you put that in a mood-lit commercial...

 I am insane, I am crazy, I am the only one who feels this way.

I’m not. I’m just a person with an anxiety disorder. There are millions of us, out there in the world. We carry our anxiety with us like a colostomy bag, filling it with fear, emptying it into the quiet corners where we sit and we breathe. Sometimes, we find pockets of peace.

I will die, I will die.

But not from this
