I suffered from anxiety for most of my life, and it kept me from doing things I loved. Unfortunately, asking for help was one thing that gave me the most anxiety. I knew I needed it, but just picking up that phone and having to tell someone how I felt just made my heart race. One day, I finally got up the courage to call a local counseling center. I will always remember that day. Once I reached someone on the other end, I just started pouring my heart out. It turned out to be a turning point in my life. I made an appointment with a counselor, and many sessions later, I am able to live a normal life. I created this blog to let others with anxiety know they are not alone, and it only takes one phone call to start improving your life. Don't be afraid!
