It started with mild feelings of uneasiness that quickly grew into near constant anxiety and paranoia. I was irritable and short-tempered, easily taking offense, and quick to get angry. I’m no stranger to managing emotions. I make my living helping other people identify and manage their own. I knew exactly what I was experiencing and thought I knew how to manage it. But this was more than just stress or skepticism. Something wasn’t right and I needed to get help soon.
