Chronicles From My Week With the Flu and Anxiety

Chronicles From My Week With the Flu and Anxiety


I had the flu this week. As I struggled to cope with the demands of my busy life, anxiety reared its ugly head.

I tried my best to stay in the light as the darkness tried to consum my every  thought.

✔️I worried
✔️I felt bad
✔️I was stressed
✔️I was battling on the inside
✔️I hid my feelings of despair

But what I didn't do is let anxiety win. I kept looking for the light when the darkness was trying to consume me.

When you tell people about your anxiety, they assume you're just unhappy or weird. But what we all really want to know is that we are loved.

Most people are good at hiding their anxiety. They never let on that they're not feeling well until they just can't do it anymore.

So, be somebody's rock today and tell them you love them. You may not realize how much they need to hear it.

Life's bullshit endeavors to teach us something, John. Deep inside stress and pain there is clarity. There is knowing what you want rather than what you don't want. Reach for the positive and don't fret over imagined negative outcomes. You have to believe with certainty you are always going to be okay, even if you have no idea how it will come about. Life has taught me that over and over again. Never mind the “what-ifs”.

I hope you feel better soon @John White, MBA  😀

Okay, John.  I love you.  Do you believe me?  Thought not.  I do seriously hate feeling unwell.  It's harder to work.


Feel better, John.
