My name is AK and I’m a fighter.

Or at least, that’s what people tell me and what I try to tell myself.

I’m a college student, over a thousand miles from home and struggling to find peace of mind everyday. I’ve tried medications and meditations and working out. Unfortunately, I’ve begun to experience more physiological side-effects of my anxiety and the stress that comes with it. And, if any of you have dealt with this like I have, you’ll know that any side effect, even if you know it is just part of your anxiety and nothing is actually wrong, it makes your anxiety worse.

So I’m trying blogging. It’s for my sake more than anything. But maybe it’ll help you too.
