On anxiety: There but for the grace of God go I.

overcoming anxiety

Do you struggle with anxiety, like I do? It’s my lifelong demon. I’m not sure I’d know what to do without it, though. I fear that without it, I wouldn’t be me. It’s my fuel, my food. Always lighting a fire under my butt to get stuff done, to try to get ahead. Staying one…
