Good Monday, Good Readers! As you may recall, a few weeks ago, my friend Jen of “Diffusing the Tension” shared an interview with yours truly and then a post I wrote about mental illness and infertility. Today, I am sharing one of my favorite posts from her site.
The post I’ve chosen to share is about anxiety–many of us experience anxiety from time to time, and some of us experience anxiety in recurrent bouts or as the General State of Affairs in our lives.
As those of you close to me know, I have been working to manage a situation regarding my mom and her severe mental health needs–unfortunately, my mom suffers from the anxiety that accompanies her delusions.
During the course of my experiences with my mom [which I am posting about publicly on Facebook (Amy Eff)], several people have reached out to me with their own stories or stories about their family members, which is exactly why I post on these topics.
Whether you have anxiety around being a person who is deaf or hard of hearing, being a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, or over your identification (or others identifying you) as a member of an oppressed minority–or more than one of these!–I want you to know that you are not alone.
If you are anxiety-prone due to nature or circumstance, you need not suffer. There are a multitude of ways one can manage anxiety… and there’s no single “right” way for all people–do what works for you.
Click on over to Jen’s page for the post. Stay a bit and look around, if the topics interest you. And don’t forget to comment or share.
What are your favorite tips for managing anxiety?
