  1. Hi there, just wanted to introduce myself, I’m Vanessa and I too have anxiety. I recently started a blog, so being open about it is all new to me. I have been reading your blog and i could see that you are so comfortable talking about it and it’s inspiring. For a new mama blogger that just admitted to her family and friends about my anxiety disorder, what kind of advice do you have? And how did you explain to them about medication, because to them, medication is the worst thing ever. As a mama with anxiety I truly appreciate you and your writing.
    Thank you,
    Love,
    V

    • Well my family kind of didn’t have much of a choice but to accept it when I was sent to the hospital for having a major panic attack in the 10th grade. I was put on all kinds of medication and they were all for me trying to over come it. My brother had it for a bit but grew out of it so he kind of doesnt understand how I still have it. Our fathers side is full of mental illness. My band teacher was the hardest to deal with. Whenever the dr changed my medication to see what works my mom wouldnt let me march because she didn’t want me over working myself on new meds. The teacher threatened to fail me even tho I had dr notes.
      My only advice is dont let their judgement bother you. We currently live in a world full of stigma around anyone who may have a mental illness. Apparently we’re all crazy. Some may understand and some may not. The ones who actively try to comprehend and work to make you less anxious…that’s your support team. Hold on to them. Lean on them and let them help. The ones who wont budge on their judgement…their opinion don’t matter.
      I have a friend that my husband doesn’t like. At all. There’s some bad blood from years ago. However said friend has helped me thru one of my darkest times. Drove me to an empty parking lot so i could have a panic attack in peace. Hugged me and let me sob.
      Because of the bad blood I kind of lost touch with that friend. But recently I talked to my husband about this friend. Because I really need friends in my life who are supportive of me in my battle and not who turn things around against me.
      Please feel free to always comment on any post. I will always be a listening ear
