  1. generalized anxiety disorder

    the beast inside me is familiar so familiar i don't always notice it's there so familiar that even dormant, it's present so familiar that breathing gets hard and i just accept it the first clue: toes twitching the second clue: teeth grinding the third clue: shoulders rising the indisputable evidence is when i can't breathe when i can't sleep (the latter is common. the former builds on itself.) my parents think i'm overdramatic (it's because i am, but i know this is real) 'there's lots of things you can find to reinforce your assumption', says my mother you don't understand i am intimately acquainted with every symptom it's ok. i accept it. (eyes open at night, brain bleeding with exhaustion, heart pounding with frustration: it's ok that sometimes i don't sleep. it's ok. i'm fine.)
