Anxious?! Prompt Answer…

What makes you most anxious?

I struggle with severe PTSD from my time at war, and many things make me anxious at times. Sometimes, it’s Middle Eastern music, other times it’s a scarred face or nightmares. There are many triggers, and I do my best to avoid them. Let’s face it, being anxious is no way to live.

Sometimes I become anxious because I am in a crowded room, which is no way to enjoy a party. Through literal hours of therapy and many, many pills, I’ve been able to limit my anxiousness. Yet, for all the pills and therapy, anxiety has a way of sneaking up on you.

Still, I do my best to avoid triggers, and for the most part, I enjoy my life. I was once told, “Not every day is a bad day,” and it’s true. Panic attacks are no picnic, but thanks to my mom’s sage advice and many prayers said on my behalf, I now struggle less than I have in previous years.

Well, that’s my prompt answer for today. I pray you all have a great day.
