My history with anxiety is a long and varied journey over the last 12 years, and in the past 12 months I have explored several different remedies to help me to reduce anxiety naturally. At it’s best, I function like someone who doesn’t worry about anything (the holy grail!), and at it’s worst, I’ve been debilitated for weeks, even months, where I couldn’t leave the couch for much of the day.
I’d try and have a shower? Panic attack. I’d try to switch the laundry from the washer to the dryer? Panic attack. Go with my son to the swimming lessons he had been going to for 2 years? Panic attack. And grocery shopping? That’s a guaranteed panic attack.
Settle in for my lifelong story of my anxiety, how it came to be, and what I’ve finally found that works after years and years of trying everything under the sun.
