Hello everyone! My name is Jupiter. I have had this blog open for a bit but until now I didn’t know what I wanted to write. I do now!
My topic is writing while living with an anxiety disorder. I have a social anxiety in result I am trapped in my home for weeks sometimes months without leaving. It’s called agoraphobia.
What is agoraphobia? That is a great question!
Agoraphobia is a type of anxiety disorder. A person with agoraphobia is afraid to leave environments they know or consider to be safe. In severe cases, a person with agoraphobia considers their home to be the only safe environment. In case you want to know more I left a link.
It’s funny (not a haha kind of funny) I don’t feel afraid! I feel panic and it feels very unreasonable yet I can not control it. Do you ever feel that?
Writing gives me a sense of living. No I don’t live like everyone else; it is extremly hard to see others living the life I wish I could live but learning to survive each day is where I’m at.
So I choose to write about anxiety and how I live, breathe and see each day. My fight, my struggle and how writing helps.
Do you struggle with anxiety?
