Anxiety Laid Bare

Anxiety Laid Bare

There’s so much I want to explain and express about living under this bizzarre thing known as anxiety. When you hear the words anxiety it may make you think of the butterflies you get when you are about to do something new or perhaps the apprehension of a job...
