It Took a Pandemic to Tell Me I Have Anxiety

It Took a Pandemic to Tell Me I Have Anxiety

A few years ago I remember sitting in the doctor’s office getting ready for a regular exam and this is when I decided “I am going to tell you I have anxiety”. It took a new disease, the Yellow Fever to tell me that I have anxiety. This was the third and final time that I got this crazy fever and I can say that the fact that I was even thinking about it is when I finally cracked and told my wife. (Now that she is my wife, that was 30 years ago)

It Took a Pandemic to Tell Me I Have Anxiety

A few years ago I remember sitting in the doctor’s office getting ready for a regular exam and this is when I decided “I am going to tell you I have anxiety”. It took a new disease, the Yellow Fever to tell me that I have anxiety. This was the third and final time that I got this crazy fever and I can say that the fact that I was even thinking about it is when I finally cracked and told my wife. (Now that she is my wife, that was 30 years ago)

 

She looked at me and said “you’re crazy aren’t you”. It took a Pandemic to make me realize that I have anxiety. I’ve been very lucky and thankful that I wasn’t at that time in my life when I would have had to say that I was insane.

 

The pandemic made me realize that I have some type of anxiety problem and that I was going crazy. The best thing that I can say about that experience is that it taught me that I shouldn’t hide it from my wife. It took a Yellow Fever to realize that my wife is the love of my life and that I shouldn’t be so selfish and self-centered. I’m just glad that I don’t have to live with this for the rest of my life. Now I’m happily on the road to better health!
