Today marks the end of President Obama’s second and final term as our leader. It’s such an emotional day for a lot of us. Not only is it the end of the 44th President of the United States term, but it feels like the end of equal rights, freedom, love and respect for all citizens.
I have an appointment today with my neuro ophthalmologist. I haven’t been since November 2015, because my nerves could no longer handle being examined for hours at a time, on a monthly basis. Especially after my last appointment went for 4-5 hours and I lost it to the point of running out of there (anxiety).
I have Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH), also known as Pseudotumor Cerebri. I was diagnosed with this in May 2015, after a series of tests, MRIs, and visits to multiple specialists.
Falling in love is one of the biggest gambles we take. You’re betting your heart and soul on someone, at the risk of them smashing it all into millions of pieces. Leaving you feeling lost and abandoned.
It can be sort of an addiction. Everyone tries it at some point -whether they admit it or not. There are times that we try to fight the urge to feel it. Afraid of what will happen if and when the feelings change. When the love dies, you can feel like a part of you has gone to die with it. The deeper the love, the harder we mourn it’s loss.
I have terrifying anxieties about certain things in life. Not everyday stresses (work, school, bills, etc). It’s the life changing events, that should normally be met with great excitement and celebration.
Of course I want the best for myself, but always in my head are negative outcomes. I think I’ve become so used to disappointment, that I’ve caused myself to panic about things that I should be extremely ecstatic about.
