Woman’s Sick Of Others Not Getting What It Means To Have Anxiety – Her Explanation Goes Viral
Although There Is Much Information On The Web About What Exactly Anxiety Is And What Different Types Of Anxiety Can Be Experienced, Those Who Don’t Suffer From Anxiety Might Not Always Truly Understand What People With Anxiety Go Through.
“Anxiety isn’t just having a hard time catching your breath. Anxiety is waking up at 3 am from a dead sleep because your heart is racing. Anxiety is breaking out in a rash for no reason. Anxiety is stressing over things that may or may not be real. Anxiety is questioning your faith, how could my creator allow me to feel this way!? Anxiety is calling your sister 3 hours before she gets up for work, in hopes she’ll answer so you can get your mind off the attack.”
This Is What Brittany Nichole Morefield, A Makeup Artist, Tried To Explain.
She stepped forward and came out in the open to talk about her current struggle with anxiety, and the way she explained left many appalled.
Her message continued:
“Anxiety is a 2 am shower. Anxiety is your mood changing in a matter of minutes. Anxiety is uncontrollable shaking and twitching. Anxiety is crying, real and painful tears. Anxiety is nausea. Anxiety is crippling. Anxiety is dark. Anxiety is having to make up excuse after excuse for your behavior.”
But She Isn’t Done Describing The Many Aspects And Angles Of The Mental Health Disorder.
“Anxiety is crippling. Anxiety is dark. Anxiety is having to make up excuse after excuse for your behavior.”
Her Facebook post, which was shared more than 418,000 times across the web, provided a clear message about mental health disorders and how those suffering from them live through them on a daily basis. Morefield, who is also a mother, described the complicated struggles that she has to fight through on a daily basis in her terrifying yet poetic anecdote.
Her Facebook post continued:
“Anxiety is fear. Anxiety is worry. Anxiety is physically and emotionally draining. Anxiety is raw. Anxiety is real. Anxiety is a fight with your spouse, even though you’re not mad. Anxiety is snapping at the smallest annoyance. Anxiety is flashbacks. Anxiety is ‘what if.’ Anxiety is a lot of ‘what’s wrong’ and ‘I don’t know.’”
Although Her Message Was Poignant And Slightly Terrifying, She Concludes Her Post With A Message Of Hope.
“Your feelings matter. Just because you’re bothered by something others aren’t, it doesn’t make you crazy or worthless. Some of the most successful people in life have anxiety. This is not your fault. This is not the end. You are strong. You are intelligent. You are brave. You are worthy.”
After She Published Her Post, People Started To Share Their Own Stories About Anxiety.
Many thanked her for having the courage to come forward and share her story with the world. Morefield’s goal is to spread awareness about the topic of anxiety and to inform those that do not completely understand the struggles and the fights that people with anxiety face on a daily basis. Her other goal is to provide a sense of comfort and compassion, as she ends her message asking people to not be scared to talk to her about their struggles, even if it is in the middle of the night.
