I think one of the worst things about anxiety, other than public panic and anxiety attacks, is probably how it manifests physically. I am completely aware that all day today I have been putting off a proposal that is due tomorrow, but facing the actual task of writing this proposal literally makes me sick to my stomach. My hands shake, my heart feels like it is beating out of my chest so hard that I can hear it, and my stomach feels like a bottomless pit that just continuously aches.
I change my mind. I think the worst part is that it is all in my head and I know it is, but it still doesn’t change a damn thing. My body still responds to the stress that is caused by my mind. And some people tell me to just get over it.
