According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, “Anxiety is a normal emotion that comes and goes in response to fears or worries about changes in health, work, relationships, or money. A person is said to have an anxiety disorder if the anxiety does not go away, gets worse over time, and prevents a person from participating in daily activities.” It affects nearly 40 million adults in the United States alone. If you’ve struggled with anxiety, I want you to know that you’re not alone. Me too. In today’s episode, I want to encourage you and help you get rid of the shame of anxiety by sharing my story with you. I’ll share a recent personal story about anxiety, as well as the natural and medical help I used to overcome it. Grab your coffee and let’s spend some time together – in my car as I drive, actually.
Quotes about letting go of the shame of anxiety:
Sometimes the chemical things happening in your body make it impossible to overcome anxiety without some medical intervention. If you have struggled with anxiety at all, I want to give you permission that it is okay if you need some medical intervention.~Mandy B. Anderson, She Who Overcomes™ Podcast episode 84
I am sorry that there may have been people that have put this pressure on you that you need to faith your way out of medicine; that you have to positively think your way out of anxiety and depression. That is wrong on so many levels. It is not okay that you have felt that pressure or been pressured in that way, but I want to give you permission to embrace where you are at. Embrace the fact that sometimes your body just needs some medicine. And that’s okay.~Mandy B. Anderson, She Who Overcomes™ Podcast episode 84
We’ve got to let go of the shame of anxiety. There is no shame in needing medical intervention. Your life is worth it.~Mandy B. Anderson, She Who Overcomes™ Podcast episode 84
