Anxiety, it’s a crippling difficulty that affects many around the world. It’s also often misunderstood by those who have never gone through it themselves. This article takes a deep dive into how anxiety affects a lady by the name of Katie. Ever since Katie first moved out on her own she’s had a problem with unpacking belongings into her new residences. She had a hard time coming to grips with what it really was, but finally was able to admit that it was that dreaded anxiety.

Try your hardest to be candid about your anxieties with your partner. You might not realize that your greatest ally and source of encouragement is the person you’re hiding your scariest truths from.

She gets anxious about the unpacking for various reasons. One reason is that she feels that she has misplaced her Grandmother’s ring and if it isn’t in the box like she suspects it is, she won’t know what to do. So she relies on just not knowing rather than knowing and being hurt. Her husband does the best he can to rationalize why she doesn’t unpack. When it’s finally revealed it’s because of her anxiety, they have a touching heart to heart and he helps guide her through this difficulty. The article also touches upon how her ADHD might be playing a role in her anxiety.
Being a rational and understanding person, my husband told me he could never be upset with this excuse, and he helped me to understand that it wasn’t my fault–I have no control over these feelings of anxiety.
