Anti-Anxiety

My serotonin levels are in flux
it’s been a while since I’ve seen you
My little blue friend
that chases away the tremors
chases away the anxiety
Except its been too long
Too long since
I was brave enough
To admit
that I needed you

Poem and picture by Ashley Houston.

Just like the tree in that photo, when you admit you need help with anxiety and depression, everything is laid bare. When everything is laid bare, it feels awkward and hard to articulate, but that’s okay. We all need to admit when we need help to overcome our demons. It’s better when you aren’t suffering alone, and get the help that you need.
