The past 6 months have been the worst of my life for anxiety, struggling to even leave the house with my husband and to function but I battled on and now we have summer upon us!
I know a lot of people struggle in heat, bright sun etc so will understand why I do too but it's not just that for me.
Summer to me means wearing different clothes and shoes, cropped trousers,shorts,sandals,pumps etc all of which make my anxiety worse when I am out of the house, I don't know why it happens, maybe I feel less secure than in my winter clothing.
Anyway today was warm so I popped on cropped trousers and sandals and the anxiety was much worse, the journey was worse,walking around the supermarket was worse, fast heart,tight chest,feeling like I couldn't concentrate and shaky legs, yes I did it but it felt awful.
My husband says I will get used to it after a while, I did last year but last year I was nowhere near as ill as this so I am scared in case I don't get used to it and it doesn't improve.
Of course I could keep my long trousers and ankle boots on but then I would be sweaty and uncomfortable so that will make me anxious too.
I just needed to vent really, the supermarket had felt about 5% better recently and it's upsetting that this silly issue I have with different clothes and shoes could undo all of my hard work.
I just hope I do get used to it, I hate summer
