The Panic, The Vomit - 2

"Worrying is like a rocking chair, it's gives you something to do while inevitably gets you no where"

I wish these kinds of revelations soothe me, but alas.

The Panic, The Vomit

I suffer from moderate to severe anxiety and I’m only 25 years old “currently on calmpam”, I’m so frustrated that I’ve reached such a degraded psychological state at such age, but everything around me seems to stress me up. I came to a conclusion that I might be running low on faith, I constantly need reassurance that everything will turn out to be ok.

I’m neither miserable nor frightened, I just can’t stop thinking about the next moment to come. My over-thinking virtue/curse has turned me into a paranoid android, calculating the perfect ways of crossing the bridge located miles away while falling down the pits two steps ahead.
