HORU June 16, 2016


(2/3) "The anxiety, and fear, and guilt and sadness, and paranoia and all of these things that I experience, they all feel so real. And they make you think that whatever it is you're doing is wrong. Whoever it is I'm interacting with, however I'm living my life, however I'm breathing, however I'm thinking, everything is wrong. And it really feels like that. And you can have someone tell you a million times that it's not, but when you're sitting there, having an anxiety attack at the dinner table, it feels so real. And the thing I've learned through all of this is that I still have a lot of things I need to figure out for myself. I've come a long way. But there's still so much I need to do for myself so that I can be where I want to be. The support system I have is everything to me. But I feel like acknowledging your struggles, and talking about them, and appreciating that support along the way is so important."
