4 UR Mental Health [3 Cartoons] Anxiety

Time to give you a little break 4 UR mental health! Often, we may feel anxiety and dread dealing with our daily challenges.  I know sometimes “I can’t seem to shake this feeling of dread!” You know what?  Deep down a part of me believes my intuition is right!

I guess it’s part of dealing with Generalized Anxiety Disorder?

On the other hand, I could be on to something.   Then again, I tend to worry about the wrong things… Have you ever been so worried about something to the point of an anxiety attack only to get broadsided from something you never even saw???  I call this “Missed Placed Anxiety” not sure if it’s in the Psychiatric Disorders  Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV).  Maybe, it will be in the DSM-V???

This might be why I fear leaving the house… I can go out more and more theses days.  For a while, all I could do is stay in my little corner of my room where I think it was safe…This is, until the sunlight hits the windows.

Of course,  having depression co-occurring with the anxiety of agoraphobia can be dangerous… Especially if you’ve been sulking in the dark for weeks!
