Until the moment we left the house, there was still a possibility that we not go, that we not make it there. The reason, good ol’ friend ANXIETY!
Last year, I wrote a postabout what I was planning on doing to make going to Anarchapulco possible. And I did it! I actually did it, I made it! So I want to share with you all the HOW it was possible, with a bit of my process.
Frank and I both knew we wanted to go. We wanted to hear some of the speakers in person, not just in stream, we wanted to meet our Steemit buddies (and don’t worry, I will share all of that and more in posts to come), but I had no idea if I would be able to go. At the time, CPTSD was less prevalent, so that wasn’t going to be a problem, but the burnout was making me struggle with my energy levels (still does), and there was the issue of massive anxiety. I had not taken public transportation in 5 years, had not taken a plane in 20 years, was afraid to leave the house, as in leave the house on its own, felt unsafe outside my home, and all that was super draining. PLUS, all my food allergies and restrictions, and all my ailments and such were adding to the anxiety.
