You know when you were a kid going on holidays, in the back seat of the car, your dad’s doing 120km down the highway, your brother and sister are fighting next to you, your mum’s about to cry from exasperation and you decide it would be awesome to wind the window down and stick your head right out into all that air that is rushing against the car?
You know how it gets all inside your mouth with such force that you can’t breathe?
And you know that moment where you miss a step, and your body jolts and your feet tingle and you feel that fear that starts in your bones and seeps out into all your skin and your heartmeat and your sweat?
That’s what today’s anxiety feels are made up of.
Missed steps and suffocation.
And how have we elected to medicate? By doing house work on my lunch break.
.. I’m sure this tactic isn’t going to work forever, but I’m taking advantage of it while it is!
WASH ALL THE DISHES! CLEAN ALL THE CLOTHES!
FORGET WHERE YOU PUT THE SPRAY N WIPE THE LAST TIME YOU USED IT!
