stage one: the calm before the storm

the shaking as I first dealt with anxiety, it was the smallest things that tick through my skin, feeling like a pin is jabbing into your skin, having anxiety you feel like a balloon every air that hits inside of you, you become very anxious about being popped, after knowing I had anxiety at the age of thirteen I never knew how difficult to do certain tasks or activities, like once im feeling good or have this huge confidence while out in public being with my friends I instantly feel worried or scared, see that’s how the mind wants you to think , you have to control the way the brain works you see I struggled with anxiety for five years having edge to my seat panick to I feel like today won’t go as I want to panick to I feel beautiful one day then the next I overthink to myself towards how my self-image is supposed to look to please society , yet the whole point is that it can be like a fire cracker we get so raddled up into something we think is gonna happen which will not be going to happen, I wish I would have known this at the age of 13 .
