I felt like I was sitting on the sidelines watching my life just float right by me. I had zero to little energy on most days. I never felt like doing anything. The number on the scale would never budge, no matter what I did. My anxiety literally was holding me hostage and controlling my life.
From the outside looking in, everyone thought I was living the "good life" No one could see the pain I was carrying around inside. The negative thoughts constantly running through my head. The canceling of plans or activities at the last minute because I was having a panic attack.
I would go to the doctor yearly for my physical I was overall "healthy." I would explain that I didn't feel great. Don't get me wrong I didn't feel bad, just not great. I would describe what I was feeling and she would just write me off. I finally decided that I needed a change. What I was feeling is not normal and no one should have to live like this.
I switched doctors, and like any good doctor, she wanted to run her own lab work. We talked about what I was feeling and she ordered a slew of tests. Two weeks later we discussed the results of my lab work and found out the problem. When then created a regimen of supplements for me to try.
I am happier! My anxiety is under control for the first time in probably 15 years. And my confidence is growing every day.
