Anxiety from the outside

Anxiety is hard to understand from the outside. Having never experienced it myself, and not being a generally patient or empathetic kind of person, I found it very hard to wrap my head around what my partner was going through. But... I knew she needed me. I needed to understand and learn... for her. Firstly I... Continue Reading →

Using the parasympathetic nervous system to calm yourself

I guess this is just becoming a dumping ground for everything I find out whilst trying to piece the puzzle of anxiety and my partner's symptoms together... but here's another gem I've come across.

Recovery isn’t linear!

It’s not always easy…

I did want to try to keep this blog positive, but lets face it, with anxiety there isn't a lot of positive to go round. When your partner has anxiety, it affects you and your life too. It's hard. It's draining. It's something that is always there. You have an idea of what to do at... Continue Reading →
