Anxiety is Real

Normalcy
Eating at a table, little children running in circles
There’s danger I swear it
Heart pounding
Padded walls on my right and left, pressure encasing me
I need to get away
Don’t embarrass yourself
Tell them to stop talking, it’s stressing you out
Get away
Plug your ears
Clench and unclench your fists
Tingling
Hit your head over and over
Fist to temple
It’s hot in here, I can’t breathe
Wait
Tell yourself that you’re okay, nothing is happening
Stop screaming and crying, you’re OKAY
TELL YOURSELF TO STOP
YOU’RE OKAY
“You’re the problem”
Doubt
Loss
It’s all in your head
You can fight it
I’m trying to
Try harder
Okay I will
People are dealing with worse things in the world and doing fine
Adapt and overcome
But I can’t
Don’t freak out you’re okay
You don’t understand
Irrational, yes I know
Not real, yes I know
Worse things out there, yes I know
Tell yourself you don’t have it, it’s in your head…
Don’t let them know
