As my anxiety gets treated with medication, I still struggle some days with bad thoughts. I am harsh on myself.

Although medication has made a lot of things easier, I feel trapped with my anxious thoughts and sometimes I'm scared to be back again at my worst behaviours. Why can't I just think straight and treat myself with care and love?

I know that after months, the antidepressants will start to make my body function better. I can say right now that I no longer feel sluggish, I do things, get out of bed, I don't skip breakfast, I try my best every single day.

So for anyone who is in the same chapter of their lives as me, we need to treat ourselves better, we need to take care of our bodies and love the way we are.

We deserve love and kindness.
