Am I going crazy?
For the first time in my life, sanity and peace seemed like a question instead of a given.
Years ago, I battled a hyperthyroid disorder. Plunging into the chaos of a thyroid-induced storm, adrenaline flooded my system and I lived on the edge of panic.
It was an agony of slow months before my hands stopped shaking. And longer before I slept more than an hour or two at night.
Anxiety marched in with a take-all vengeance, and worry held me captive in my own home—
Afraid to go out.
Afraid to stay in.
Afraid of being afraid.
Afraid of nothing specific.
Afraid of everything.
