A Poem for the Anxious Stigma

I'm a problem Solver A people Fixer A love Elixer All I want to do is fix Her.  I can't stand to see someone struggle or be in pain And I want to help But sometimes it's in vain But when someone truly gets it When someone gets it And their eye's light up  It's like the stars come alive at night And they won't give up  Hope For this anxiety we all feel For this mental illness For this lack of awareness Stigma And when Joy is something that your mind steals We lack our passion Compassion for one another We lose our purpose Which aggravates these feelings That seems like they fill  up to the ceiling Of your Mind Truly they do The room There's nothing left…

Is Worthiness Even Definable?
Worthiness is hard to define. Especially when you've been told you were unworthy all your life. You can tell someone how it feels to be unworthy, but now I want you to be worthy. Because you are.

Is Worthiness Even Definable?

Today I had plans to write about fear, but I listened to this podcast by Lone Doctrine called "When You Feel Unworthy" and it really got me thinking about how I often feel unworthy. You see, it's very interesting as you begin to explore your mind and find words that describe the things you've felt or thought about yourself for so long. I would never have identified with feeling unworthy had it not been for listening to this podcast and reflecting on the things I believe I don't deserve or think about how "unspecial" I often feel.I look forward to talking to you about fear in the near future because I think it has a lot to do with why I feel unworthy. It is amazing how so many topics about human…

The Most Anxious Year of My Life

My life a little over a year ago was half wonderful and half awful. From the outside looking in one might say, "She shouldn't be anxious! Her life is great!" And perhaps you see your own life that way and you discount your feelings? On the home front, everything was and still is thrilling. I love my husband more and more all the time. We are doing well financially and have a beautiful home. My dog and cat bring me joy every moment I’m home. Yes, home life was great. Work life, not so great. My job, which was my first career position using my degree- sort of- was a major stress on my life. We had no employees to do the work we promised to do. Well, we…

An Eviction Notice for Anxiety

I’m Joshlyne and my mind sucks. Not really, I shouldn't say such things about myself. How about something we can all agree with, "ANXIETY SUCKS!" Welcome to my anxiety busting journey In retrospect I see that I have always had anxiety. In fact, I remember my doctor in high school telling me I was suffering effects of anxiety when I originally went to him for heart palpitations. It resulted in a low dose of Sertraline (an off-brand of Zoloft) and that was the end of it. Today I wonder, “Is that really our answer to our children’s problems?” I took it without question, even when I wasn't sure why he was prescribing medicine for anxiety. I didn't have anxiety! I didn't even know what anxiety was! I took that…
