Beating UP My Anxiety! (Literally)

Hey guys,

My name is Mercedes and I suffer from really bad anxiety. I feel like it has taken over my life over the past couple of years and its truly debilitating. Well, last year I decided to make a change about that but I stopped my progress because of well...my anxiety. But this year I am determined to overcome it and I want you all to join me in my journey! I have decided to create a YouTube channel dedicated to overcoming my anxiety. There, I will do anxiety challenges, test out anxiety products, discuss therapy, antidepressants, etc. I really just want to connect with people who are also going through the same things I am and I also want people to know that they're not alone. I also want the stigma of mental health to be erased. I feel like people expect people with mental health to look differently than the everyday person - as if we walk around with a dark cloud over our heads. But! We like to have fun to, we blend in like everyone else (because we're also apart of society), we like Game of Thrones, music, and whatever fun things everyone else likes! I want to make it fun and interesting and not so serious all the time!

So, I just want to be a positive example for everyone dealing with mental illness. If you watch a lot of YouTube (or even if you don't), please subscribe to my YouTube channel! I have included the link below!
