the aftermath of my diagnosis

3 years – since being diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. And it has been a roller coaster of emotions.

I remember my parents telling me to hide it from my friends. They had my best interest in mind – as they didnt want to me be treated differently. But I did it anyway.

May 2nd – the day I told my friends, who I thought would be by my side for the rest of my life. Yet even 6 months later with the death of my cousin- they did not say 1 word of comfort to me.

Who would have known that down the road, I would lose friends for having generalized anxiety disorder. With this diagnosis came, me realizing my true friends.

So I guess, this is me, saying thank you to those who have stuck by my side in times of hardship.
