I'd like to add one thing to my post on anxiety...
I don't want anyone to feel as though I believe using medicine to deal with anxiety is wrong. Its not. In fact, I have seen and heard of many cases where it was the best thing that the person could do for themselves.
As of YET, I have not used medication to treat my symptoms. Does that mean I never will? No. But for now, both my doctor and myself have decided to try and see if this is something I can work through on my own. I am however, completely open to finding an alternative if I need to in the future.
If I hurt or offended with my comments yesterday, I apologize. Please know that was never my intentions.
Thank you for reading my thoughts!
