Today is my birthday and all I want is to be happy my normal self. I just seem very anxious today more then usual and it makes me sad because all I wished for today was to feel normal and happy and not let this horrible monster in my head take over! Usually when I feel this was I tend to isolate my self and stay home watch a movie or so but this tome I told my self it’s my birthday please inner me be brave and go enjoy your self it’s your birthday it’s not a day to do nothing and mope around and sad it’s your day to be happy you got this, so I did but man o man did it hit me hard at the store and I tried my hardest to not give in but then my body shut down and I left I’m upset with my self and sad.

Oh yes I know the pain that comes with these anxieties and panic attacks. They do take a toll on a person. Like right now I have a bad headache and I'm a bit nauseous. I got this way bu just thinking that I have to go to the club for a friends birthday party. God I feel crappy I want to stay home. Lol

Happy birthday 🎂

Thank you 😊

Happy Birthday Lupi, this is your special day. Don't allow The Anxiety Monster to take that away from you. Oh I know the feeling you went through all too well along with the aftermath but.... As they say, when life hands you lemons, make lemonade. Go to Plan B today. Do something special for yourself. If you have to, order in but make it special.

Picture us all around you sending you best wishes. You are never alone. It's time to celebrate :) xx
