My Over Bearing Anxiety

by Dakota Juarez
(Log Lane Village, CO)

My anxiety began after I was sexually abused by my stepdad which was a long time ago! Since then I am not able to speak to men or be in crowds or my anxiety starts kicking in. If I am placed in a huge crowd my anxiety gets really bad and I take off without knowing where am going. I don't go out much, I am just a hermit crab stuck in her shell and won't leave afraid of getting hurt again!! I know, I know, people say, "get over it your abuse happened a long time ago" but I just can't get over it.I was traumatized for life. If only there was a way out but there isn't ! I just try my best to stay strong and repeatedly tell myself everything is going to be okay even though I feel that its not!!
