fear and mental illness

i have been crippled the last week with fear of the everyday-from taking local transportation to welcoming my husband back at the airport. it’s hard to live with fear because it can become crippling and the only way i find to move past it is to move through it-whatever it may be.

being fear can trigger fight or flight and it can cause you to feel that every word you say may have a dire consequence when it may not have a consequence at all. i have felt this whole week that i have been living under a microscope of fear. going places i am used to going to and still feeling afraid is hard.

today i will embrace my fear and hope that no harm will come to me either in a hospital or when i am in the city. i will breathe and face it as it’s only thing i can do.

I’m a writer & poet in my late 40’s who published my first book of poetry called Greylight a few years back. I live by a simple motto Live Laugh Love & show gratitude for each day. I currently live in Norway with my husband & our dog. I am working on a new book, release date is in the future. i am looking for artists with a modern view to represent my new body of work.
