This is my take on when anxiety grips you and leaves you swimming in a haze of spinning thoughts and unexplainable removed-ness. It often feels like you’re in a bubble, trying desperately to watch the world from the inside but just feeling stuck within this blinding circle. Until eventually a crack forms and you catch a breath, and it clicks: it’s anxiety, that’s all it is.
I so often find it can take ages for this to click, and when it does I immediately feel so much relief. Even if your head doesn’t stop spinning, something inside you knows it’s okay – it’s just anxiety. You’re not losing your nut.
It does make me laugh that no matter how many times you feel them, anxiety attacks can just still so cleverly sneak up and catch you so flippin’ well.
