When Symptoms Return: Anxiety

  This weekend was one where I did not have anything that was set in stone as far as activities go.  After several weeks of having one thing after another planned, it was a weekend where my partner and I looked at each other and said, “What do you want to do?” And we just… Continue reading When Symptoms Return: Anxiety
