Anxiety wants to isolate you. It wants to clamp you down. It wants to shut you up. You have to carefully, slowly, push your way through. Keep going.Arthritis can be an incredibly painful condition and those who suffer from it should be admired. They push through the pain using coping strategies and medication because if you don’t mobilise those joints, they could seize up and the pain would be worse. In short, use it or you’ll lose it. Anxiety is a similar beast.
