My name is Ziggy, and I have been dealing with anxiety for awhile. It is hard to write about my fears, and the thoughts that I can't get out of my head. I am 26, but every night when I go to bed, I know I won't wake up in the morning. I constantly think I have cancer, or am going to have some major blood vessel rupture, or that I'm infected with parasites. Parasites and bugs are really my two main issues. I live in Minnesota, and a couple of years ago, in the dead of winter, I thought I saw a bug crawl across the kitchen floor and under the dishwasher. I spent the next three evenings devoted to looking under every piece of furniture with a flashlight. I didn't find anything.

I guess some back story? So, when I was 16 I was diagnosed with depression, and then I started using illicit chemicals. When I stopped I didn't have problems with depression any more, but had attention issues related to anxiety. That's what my doctor says anyway, that I can't concentrate on anything because I can't stop thinking about worms, cancer, death, etc.

I'm 26.

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
