Putting on a brave face

Tonight I feel low , the past few days have been reflecting on anxiety and the way it has made me feel . It was my birthday last week , I didn’t want a fuss but my friend wanted to take me out for a meal last weekend , so I did . My mother wanted me to get some fresh air so I did , we went for a walk .

Because they wanted me too .

How come I feel so exhausted , I felt like I wasn’t really with them , I feel so emotional and upset about it . It’s like I’m pretending to be okay and all I want to do is cry , Its an overwhelming feeling , that’s suddenly took over ,

I think I might have done too much in s small space of time . I didn’t think it would effect me like this ......
