High Functioning Anxiety

My husband asked me today why I think some people don’t believe in things like high functioning anxiety...




The first thing came to mind was this...

When someone accidentally cuts them self, we can SEE the cut and we can immediately sympathize... we can “feel their pain”

But when someone is FEELING like their heart has been broken into tiny pieces and they are trying to “carry on”... you just can’t see that.

And because they can’t see it with their own eyes, it must not be “real

I have struggled TERRIBLY in the past with high functioning anxiety, I looked fine on the outside but on the inside I felt so much fear... my heart was racing and my palms would be sweating...


but of course I pushed through...

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve told people I’m struggling and they say “wow, I had no idea.” Because they couldn’t see with their eyes that I was struggling...

But if they could FEEL what I’m feeling...


oh my gosh... I know they would sympathized because this type of pain is gut wrenching...

So I just want to say this... just because we hide it well it doesn’t make it any less valid.


Or any less painful for that matter

To all my high functioning anxiety peeps, I see you, babe. I see you.


And whatever you’re going through is valid.


Sending you all my Love xxx
