#31day October Writing Challenge >>> Day 15

If you struggle with anxiety, you are not alone.
It's not everyday I feel panicky but when it arrives, it's a terrifying all-sensory experience. 
It's real.

Today I was overwhelmed with anxiety, borderline panic-mode. 
Asking for prayer from others and spending time in prayer was my saving grace to defeat this.
 My best advice is REACH OUT. 
Do you hear me?
I don't understand anxiety and I'm beyond frustrated that I still struggle with fleeting anxious moments, but, I'm certain I have a God who adores me and is here every step of the way. 
I'm not the only person on the planet who has PTSD (yes, you can still struggle 7 years after trauma) and I'm certainly not the only person who struggles with anxiety. 
I'm open with my struggle with the hope that at least one person who reads this will feel comforted and validated. 
I asked others to pray for me and you know what? I felt it. 
Anxiety is real. 
So is love. 
So is prayer.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I've been dealing with anxiety and panic attacks for the last 4 years and it's awful. It stops me from being me and doing things I love to do. I'm so grateful to always have someone to talk to, God.

  2. Writing for a living isn't easy and unless you've already landed a 5 figure book deal for your latest novel, you need to be as creative in generating income as you are with your words.Related Site
