Hey everyone this is my first post on this site so I just thought I would share a little bit about a “ normal day “ for me.
Im 20 years old and I live a pretty normal life these days, full time job etc. I can hold myself together pretty well on the outside. I suffered a huge drug addiction for 3 years which I managed to overcome a year ago, but it’s definitely left it’s mark on my life. Everyday I’m battling myself whether it’s 24 hours of depressive thoughts and emotions, or 7 days of constant hyperventilation and panic. Some mornings I wake up and I feel like my heart is about to leap out of my chest. But I get regular health checks and I am 100% fine, the addiction didn’t leave much of a physical mark on me thankfully.
I get 1000 anxious symptoms in one day, all sorts of weird things that seem to be happening constantly, tingling down an arm or a sudden rush of fuzziness for example. The worst part is the fact that you know it’s your head playing tricks on you and a lot of you will agree with that. 99% of us are physically healthy, we just don’t feel it.
So I just wanted to tell you all a bit about myself and offer some reassurance that no one suffering is alone, we all are in the same boat, and are willing to support one another. We all know how hard it gets sometimes, thanks for your time ❤️❤️❤️
