‘Why set up a blog in 2017? ’ you might ask.

I’ve asked myself the same question as I’ve been prepping, planning and writing for it.

Like everyone, I’ve had ups and downs – some more extreme than others. What makes mine only slightly different is that most of mine can be tied to living with anxiety.

Of course, I’m not the only one. And it isn’t just the defining moments of our lives. It’s the daily ‘what if’s, the paranoia, the sensitivity, the struggle to do things that it seems every other person on this Earth seems innately capable of doing.

Whether it’s something as simple as not answering an unknown phone number until I’ve rapidly Googled it or a full-on panic attack, it manifests itself in so many different ways. And when mine came to a pretty spectacular crescendo last year, I was at a bit of a loss of what to do.

So this website is exactly that – the sort of stuff I wish I’d been able to find. Some occasionally pensive posts mixed in with whimsy and empathy.

My take on things may not apply to your own experiences – but I hope you find them useful, reassuring or entertaining nonetheless.
