Hi! I'm a 25 year old woman working three jobs and attempting to make a name for myself as an artist (I gotta degree and everything!) Coming to terms with adulthood and managing the overwhelming, paralyzing stress that accompanies it is a bit difficult. I've always had anxiety issues (I think it's hereditary?) and my tramatic childhood doesn't help either. You'd think it'd make me stronger, right? (I lost my parents along with some other junk, long-story-short) During situations of stress and high energy, I either become a deer-in-headlights or a chattering squirrel, knocking stuff over and stumbling over words. It takes me forever to calm down and people have often asked if I'm okay. Ordinarily I'm a more subdued person (I think?), so it freaks me out when I freak out. I always thought my spirit animal was a cat, but it's probably more likely a squirrel.
