- Wedding: September 2013
So I wanted to share my wedding day story to many help bees out there with anxiety issues.
I have a fairly bad anxiety disorder (am medicated) and slmost my entire life I have been wrapped up in my anxiety during big events. I was so worried it would be the same thing with the wedding day and I would be sick with anxiety.
The first thing I did was break with tradition and sleep in my own bed with my fiance the night before the wedding (we already own a home together). He is the only person who I feel truly calm with so it was a no brainer and he was supportive. We had a calm night and watched a movie (rehearsal dinner was the weekend before) and went to bed around 11pm.
I woke up a few times but got a good 7 hours. When I woke up I was just calm. I kept reminding myself to go slowly and deep breathe all day but honestly it was one of the calmest days I have ever had in my entire life.
I just wanted to share tnis story for bees who are worried that there anxiety will get the best of them…you can be calm and enjoy your day!
