Something amazing is happening.
A few days ago, I felt a few moments where I didn’t feel the dull, ever-present chest pain associated with my anxiety.
It was after the stray cat scratched my arm and I already put gauze and bandages on it. I picked up my indoor cat, Oliver, and he pressed his head against mine and I just felt 100% calm. I forgot what that felt like.
Since then I’ve felt periods of peace a number of times, increasing in frequency, as if the storm is starting to subside.
