I Forgot I Had Anxiety

web1 Sometimes I forget I have anxiety.

Weird, right?

My mind gets caught in a messy, sticky web of scary, contradictory messages and I instantly react without challenging the thoughts.

It’s like I walk around in an invisible anxiety cloak that I didn’t realize I had on until it comes off.

It’s really difficult to practice self-care and really be there for myself when I’m not realizing I’m having a problem.

Does this happen to anyone else?
