  1. Wow, you read my heart. I have never had anxiety before I lost my son. So much so, I didn’t even know what I was trying to describe was anxiety. It can be pain staking. Everyday is now a choice … and those sudden sneak ups make me weak in the knees. Thank you for describing how I feel so well. When I’m at I worst is when I pray the most💕
