this is what high functioning anxiety looks like

Hello, hello, loves! Welcome back to another Wellness Wednesday. Today I’m shedding some light on high functioning anxiety, which technically isn’t considered a mental disorder, but I still thought it was important to talk about. During the times my anxiety isn’t quite so high, I consider myself to be someone with high functioning anxiety – solely because my anxious tendencies always exist, but might not present themselves to the point of panic/anxiety disorder.

When I realized how good it felt to open up about my anxiety and saw how many people it touched, I promised I would continue to be a voice for those that still felt unable to speak out.

my food sensitivity results!

Happy Friday y’all! If you’ve been around the blog long, you know I’ve become a huge advocate for anti-inflammatory diets, but exactly what can trigger those inflammatory responses can differ from person to person. I already had some suspicions about what foods trigger a response for me, but I wanted to put those suspicions to the test!
