I've tried to come up with a description but I can't really put it any better than how you have Howlyncat, about being in a ball of snow and constantly trying to dig your way out.
I remember saying this before, but sometimes I personify anxiety as being something which leeches off me and sucks out all my optimism and happiness. I know I'm a good person and deserve happiness and yet this cruel thing smothers me and constantly whispers irrational words of doubt into my ear so much that I actually believe what it's saying. Sometimes it's like I'm possessed or something because some of the irrational thoughts which pop into my head are just so ridiculous and I don't understand how my brain could possibly think such things.

Anxiety and Panic are like a panther, they sneak up on you when you think you are ok.............and then they pounce.
Anxiety is waiting to go to the oral surgeon today and have a wisdom tooth extracted, you cannot eat or drink, you just have to wait and the anxiety is just niggling at the back of your neck, wanting to go into a full blown panic attack..............you get your whip and keep it bay.
You come to HW and get into helping others. That is me today.
Anxiety is like being frozen in time, you do not know which way to turn or who to turn to. How can anyone make you better? The tears of sadness that flow because you feel so abnormal are gut wrenching and you wonder if they will ever quit?
Next up.............your all doing a great job.
Anxiety is worrying about what people think of you
Anxiety is tears of sadness and frustration
Anxiety is feeling out of control
Anxiety is isolation, no one wants to be with an anxious person.
Anxiety is being called nervous
Anxiety is extreme jumpiness, and sleep difficulties.
I do not want to be anxious anymore.
I want to feel happy and know people accept me.
Trusting is believing in Big Sis. Hope is never giving up. Anxiety is a word that starts with the letter A.
