Uncertain times and self deprecation: time to blog?

I used to be a pretty hopeful person. Always dreaming of something better, always taking steps to get there. It was easy when I was younger.

Top 10 Coping Mechanisms for When My Anxiety Is Too Much

For the past week and half (roughly), my anxiety has been through the roof. There’s no one pinpoint of the source, it’s been a culmination of things. To be honest, this is the busiest I’ve been in awhile and I know it will just get busier and busier. I guess I’m writing this to really…
